Order letter is a document that confirms the details of a purchase of goods or services from one party to another. It usually includes more information about what you are ordering, like quantity, model number, or color, the payment terms, and the matter in which the products are to be shipped. When the recipient receives this letter, they will process the order and send the merchandise.
Order letter is letters dealing with orders and payments for merchandise form a bulk of business activity. As a result, serious thinking and care should be exercised in drafting these letters. A little carelessness may result in loss of the customers or good will. Therefore order letters should be exact cordial and tactful. They should be definite and complete that the reader may fell it exactly as the writer wishes. Any error or incompleteness may mean further corresponding shipping delays complicated billing repacking and loss of business.
An order letter need not be preceded by an inquiry or offer. Information received from catalogue and advertisement also helps people and parties in placing and sale. Hence it has great importance. Proper care should be taken in drafting of the order to ensure efficient handling and to eliminate all doubts resulting in loss of time and possibly of the market.
The desired facts are as under:
1. Details about what you are ordering or reserving.
2. Directions for shipment.
3. Manner of payments.
In both order and reservation messages, the main idea in the first paragraph we are reserving or ordering something. Our explanatory paragraphs give whatever details the order requires - about quantity, colour, style, size, price, payment, location, shipment data, place - plus any specific instructions our reader might need. The last paragraph invites prompt shipment and dated action, if desired.

The Purchase Order Form is a written sales contract between buyer and seller detailing the exact merchandise or services to be rendered from a single vendor. The Purchase Order Form contains areas for the PO number, shipping date, billing address, shipping address, terms of payment, and a list of services/products, often including specifications and reference or part numbers of the items to be purchased, with quantities and prices.
A purchase order (PO) is a commercial document issued by a buyer to a seller, indicating types, quantities, and agreed prices for products or services the seller will provide to the buyer. Sending a purchase order to a supplier constitutes a legal offer to buy products or services. Acceptance of a purchase order by a seller usually forms a contract between the buyer and seller, so no contract exists until the purchase order is accepted. It is used to control the purchasing of products and services from external suppliers.
A purchase order is a document sent to a supplier or vendor, authorizing shipment of a product to the customer at a specified price and terms. The creation of a purchase order creates a legally binding contract which cannot be changed without the consent of both parties.
A customer may sometimes create an open or standing purchase order which allows the customer to order quantities of the product(s) from the vendor over a period of time (usually a year) at the specified price. Open POs are often used for services which occur over a period of time.
The typical sections of a purchase order are:
  • Date
  • The purchase order number
  • Names and addresses of both the customer and the supplier/vendor.
  • Description of the items being ordered, the cost for each, and the total amount.
The PO number is an important reference for both the customer and the supplier.
