What is a Purchase Order?

A purchase order is used in business to place an order for goods or services. They can be created manually, as well as electronically. Purchase Orders are typically issued by the buyer and also include details of payment terms, shipping instructions, product specifications, delivery schedules and more. 


Why you need a Purchase Order?


The purchase order can be an important tool for buyers as it can help them prove their case in court if there are ever any disagreements about whether they actually bought those goods or not. If you’re looking for some protection when purchasing products from another party consider using a purchase order!

A purchase order can also provide protection in case there is a dispute between the buyer and seller about what was ordered or delivered while making it clear who has legal responsibility for returns, refunds or damages if necessary. Buyers should always use this form of agreement when purchasing goods online so that they know exactly what they are getting at all times in addition
