Re: HOW TO CHANGE THE INVOICE METHODS IN V9 OF SALES ORDER?

> How can we set the whole sales order as invoicing before delivery?

The exact same way you would manage it through the eCommerce: if it's not paid, it's not ordered. You confirm the order at the reception of the payment (that could be an advance or a full payment). To do that, when you get a payment 'SO/000XX' in your bank statement, you validate the related order.

This use case is a payment based on an order, not an invoice. But I think it's the most common practice in the industry.

If you really want a payment based on an invoice that will trigger the delivery order, all you need to do is that (to be tested):
- make the invoice button visible in the state Order Sent (just change view)

Then the user works that way:
- invoice the order, but do not confirm it, using this button
- when you get the invoice payment, go to related order and confirm it

We will check if we can add a module to v9 to automate this.

Thanks,
