Deposit or advance payment registered on sale order

Hello all,

We are having the following payment and invoicing process:
- the customer make a deposit payment (arrhes in french) to confirm the
sale order.
- the sale order is printed with the deposit amount and given to the
customer.
- the order is processed by purchasing or manufacturing.
- the day before delivery the order is invoiced, invoice is printed with
the balance taking into account the deposit already given
- the last payment is done with the order delivery

In odoo this use case, which I think is quite common at least in France,
does not seems to be handled.
What I have seen possible in Odoo is:
- register a customer payment: long and complicated, need to go in
accounting, create a payment, look for the customer then it needs to
reconcile the payment with the invoice...
- invoicing at the order confirmation (down payment or invoiceable
lines) and then register deposit payment will generate taxes records

Please could you tell me if I missed something. How are you handling
such scenario?
Otherwise could you confirm nothing as such already exist.

We are using v9 but addons for other versions can still be a good start.

Thanks for reading,
