We sell products and process invoices, receive the payments but ordering them from our overseas Suppliers may take up to six weeks and leave us with negative stock. What should we do in this situation?
Selling any Product that you do not have in stock will create a negative on hand balance. There are options to look at in this situation
Create a quote, the stock is not effected. Payment can be recorded as an Unallocated Payment.
Create a pending Invoice and place it On Hold. Stock will then be Allocated and an Invoice can be given to the Customer if necessary. An Unallocated Payment can again be receipted if necessary.
