Creating Delivery Orders after Invoice Payment

Default behavior in Odoo is to create delivery orders when a SO is confirmed.  For retail customers we won't want delivery until the invoice is paid (terms are due immediately.)  We are using Odoo 9.

The " Sales and Warehouse Management " Module says:

This module makes the link between the sales and warehouses management applications :-


You can choose flexible invoicing methods:

  • On Demand: Invoices are created manually from Sales Orders when needed

  • On Delivery Order: Invoices are generated from picking (delivery)

  • Before Delivery: A Draft invoice is created and must be paid before delivery

This module is installed and I can find no way to select the 'Before Delivery' option.   How is this done?

It seems like this should be able to be set on the SO for the customer or based on the customer's payment terms.

This should be a simple thing, what am I missing?

I am also interested in how this can be handled.  We have many international customers that are required to pay for purchases prior to delivery. 

We are also using Odoo 9.  Does anyone know what the solution is?

We are stuck in v11 community, setting up for retail + ecommerce business.

just wondering if there are any standard flow built-in to prevent delivery before full payment.

Invoicing policy on either "Ordered quantities" or "Delivered quantities" doesn't stop the delivery order despite order invoice not fully paid. 

New to Odoo, so I wonder if we can disable automatic generation of Delivery Order?

You can manage this by selecting   

Invoicing Policy in Product Form

There are options like 1)Ordered quantities 2)Delivered quantities 3) Invoice based on time and material 

You have to select Delivered  quantities

Is there a way to do that in odoo 10 too?  Any addons for this?

I hope you found a solution.

I like to surround myself with brave, creative people.

My motivation for learning different technologies and algos drive me. I love challenges of a steep learning curve which I believe makes me a better learner. I have a strong desire to learn different technologies, which would enable me to become a full stack developer.

You can manage this by selecting   Create Invoice (order_policy)   Before Delivery 

By default Create Invoice (order policy) is set to be on demand  , which can be set as  Before Delivery   and On  Delivery Order like

  • Create Invoice Before Delivery

  • Create Invoice  On  Delivery Order 


Thank you, this selection appears on Odoo 8 but not in Odoo 9.
