Packing slip

You use a packing slip to deliver products or activities (items) to a sales contact. By adding a packing slip, you write off the sold units from the stock. Once the packing slip has been reported as ready, you can invoice the packing slip.


You add a packing slip so that you can deliver items to a sales contact.

You can automatically generate packing slips for sales orders for which stock is available. This is the most efficient method; Profit checks what you can send.

You can also add a packing slip manually. There are various methods for this, including copying lines from various orders or adding lines yourself.

By adding a packing slip, you write off the sold units from the stock. Thus, with the addition of a packing slip, a stock entry and a financial entry take place.

Once the packing slip has been reported ready, you can use it to create an invoice.


If you add a packing slip with a date in the past, the stock entries for the articles always have today’s date. (Stock entries are always based on the system date = current date.)
