The Sale concept registers what quantity of products are sold or returned and how the customer paid for them. Each sale, at any time, can be in one of several different states. A sale progress though these states until it is posted.

Each sale is linked to a Point where it takes place.

A sale is identified by a unique number that is generated automatically from the configured Sequence for the sale Point. It also has other general information like the date and the Employee who creates the order.

The sale is made up from one, or more, sales lines. These lines provide information about which Products and what quantities are included in the sale.

The total and tax amounts for a sale are derived from the prices and Taxes of the line’s Products.

The amount paid or reimbursed is registered using the Payment Method. Once the amount to paid reaches zero, the sale is done.

On posting the sale it generates the corresponding Stock Moves for the goods and posts the corresponding Account Move.
