Consolidated invoicing allows you to create a single sales order that you can ship against multiple times. The customer receives one invoice that includes all shipments. Configuration is on a per customer basis. Learn how to configure multi-shipment posting and how it affects statements and posting, below.
- Go to File > Customer > Master, and open the customer's account.
- Click the General tab.
- Click Edit.
- Under the Sales Order/Invoice Options, select the Multi Shipment Invoice box
- Click Save.
For multi-shipment invoices, customer terms are dated from the last partial shipment. The Customer Statement and Cash Receipts Posting exclude partial posts and show only the final invoice after it is generated. As partial shipments are invoiced, they are marked as "Disputed" and added to the A/R Aging Report. Taxes may round as a result of multi-shipment invoices and their associated charges.
Manually printing a partial shipment generates a Proof of Delivery document.
