Purchase order

A purchase order is literally what it says; an order is placed to buy a product or service. It’s sensible to always use a purchase order because it reduces the chance of misunderstandings over what has been purchased. 


In addition to any existing terms and conditions, a purchase order can act as a formal offer for the supply of goods and/or services in return for payment. Make sure your purchase order covers the description of what is to be bought or sold, the contact details of the buyer and seller, as well as the price and payment details.
