How can OpenERP handle layaways?

Hi,

So in our business it is very customary for clients to do layaways for their merchandise. Let's assume I'm the client in this example:

I went to Walmart to buy a TV but it costs $599 and I don't have that amount of money. I ask them to 'hold on' for the TV for me. I give a $100 deposit for the TV and $499 remains. In this case Walmart stays with the TV until I pay the balance in full. It can take me two or three payments or it can take me 10 or 20.

How can OpenERP handle a sale like this and keep track of all payments without creating a delivery order for the customer.

I did see that there was an option to pay for part of the invoice when registering payments but I'm not sure if that's the proper way. The way our business works is that a sale is finalized once the merchandise has been delivered to the customer. So if the customer keeps giving us deposits the sale is just a sale. However, once the customer pays in full then we can invoice the sale and deliver the merchandise to the client.

If anyone can suggest a way to manage this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hello,

when you pay invoice , in payment wizard there is option "fixed prize(deposit)". now suppose your customer deposit 100$, make invoice with 100 $ as advance , and respectively... , pay all invoice .it will show all entries.but it will maintain manually.

Thanks Lot

I would model this using:

https://www.openerp.com/apps/7.0/stock_reserve_sale/

and

https://www.openerp.com/apps/7.0/account_prepayment/

You can create a quote and reserve stock to start the layaway. You can make advanced payments and one the final payment is made, you can confirm the sale and create a delivery order.

The only part that isn't done for you is keeping track of the balance due, but you could do this via a customization or by updating notes on the quote.
