Placing an order
Companies buy and sell goods and to do so they need to deal with orders. Typically orders have a date and a reference number and are usually written on a company’s official order form.
Order - example:
Order no. – this is the reference number of your order; use it when referring in correspondence or telephone calls
Quantity – this is how many you order
Item description – this is what you order; usually you write here the size, colour, etc.
Cat. No. – this is the number of the item you can find in the catalogue
Price – this is how much each item costs
When making an order you usually produce a covering letter where you inform the buyer that you are enclosing your order, confirm terms of payment, discounts and delivery.
Please find enclosed our order No AB 1234/2020.
Although we anticipated a higher trade discount than 15%, we will place an initial order and hope that the discount can be reviewed in the near future. We would like to confirm that payment will be made on delivery.
If you do not have any of the items we have ordered currently in stock, please do not send alternatives.
We would appreciate delivery within the next two weeks, and look forward to your acknowledgment.
