Adjust Order Credit Status

January 9, 2012 in Order Management


When a Sales Order is entered into Online Advantage, the customer’s account is credit checked and if it is found that the customer has insufficient credit available on their account the order is placed on a ‘credit stop’ status. Orders on credit stop are prevented from entering the Picking stage of Order Processing. Depending on circumstances, it may be desirable to release the order for Picking prior to the customer’s account being updated. For example, as a gesture of good will, or where payment for the account has been received, but just not processed in the Accounts Receivable ledger yet. Use this function to ‘release’ an order from credit stop so it may be processed.

Note that a credit release option is also available at the end of Sales Order Entry. That option links you to this process and is only available to user’s with security access to this function.

You may also use this function to place an order on credit stop status to prevent it from being picked if required.

This function may also be used to add a terms date where the order is held because it is waiting on terms negotiation to be finalised.
