Topic: prepayment on items not yet purchased
Hi again, I am trying to figure the workflow on this scenario and I am not meeting with success.
I have an order from my customer for a given set of devices. I have gotten a quote from a few vendors in order to fill the order.
I do not have sufficient money to pay the vendor, so the customer has agreed to make a partial prepayment.
I have created the quote and sent it to the customer. After it was approved, I created the sales order from the quote. I have setup a deferred income account and a prepayment payment term. In the sales order, I have set the "prepayment required" field to the value that the customer has agreed to pay. now when I go to sales=>invoice prepaid orders, I can only create an invoice for the full amount, not the agreed upon prepayment value.
I am not really clear how to send them an invoice for the value of the partial prepayment. Seems like I am missing a step, maybe in the delivery? but I can't make delivery till I get the vendor invoice, and I can't get the vendor invoice before prepayment, so maybe there is another way to do this?
suggestions would be appreciated...
