Purchase Order Templates

A purchase order is a type of a document which is prepared in the format of a form. The purchase order form is being used by almost every type of business which has to purchase the raw goods and services from someone in large quantities. Usually these forms are used on regular basis by the businesses. Purchase order form is not only useful for ordering the items to be purchased but it also helps an individual or a business to keep the record of the number of purchases they have made. The form lets the receiver or the vendor know about the following details:

  • The detail of the product
  • The quantity of the product
  • The date on which the order was placed
  • The date on which the order should be received
  • The net price of the total purchases

When the vendor accepts the purchase order and starts processing on it, the document becomes a legal binding document between the buyer and the seller. Usually the seller sends the items to the buyer which was specified in the purchase order form and then the seller makes an invoice containing total amount to the buyer which he has to pay. The invoice can be sent within 30 to 6o days depending upon the agreement and the type of relationship which both have with each other.
