Add a Purchase Order to an Invoice

How to Add a Purchase Order Number to an Order-Invoice

Due to the additional costs associated with processing and collecting payments authorized by purchase orders, Volgistics is not able to accept purchase orders as a form of payment. Volgistics service fees can only be paid by credit card or check.

While Volgistics does not accept purchase orders as payment, you can use a purchase order internally to initiate the payment process. For example, you could create an Order-Invoice in the Volgistics Store for the service level and duration of service you'd like and then create a purchase order based on that invoice. Once the purchase order has been approved, you can mail your check to Volgistics or make a credit card payment through the Store. The secure Volgistics Store provides a way for organizations that have paper-based payment processing systems to generate Order-Invoices with purchase order numbers for their internal payment processing requirements.
