Usual shipping and invoicing processes

Hi there. I have a question for Netsuite experts. In many, many businesses are very usual the following processes:

  • To create a shipment with lines (or partial lines) from different sales orders of the same customer and ship-to address.
  • To generate ONE AR invoice for all the shipments done in a period (monthly, tipically) for each customer. So, this implies that this invoice includes the billing of those sales order lines (or partial shipped lines).

I don’t see the possibility to cover these processes in Netsuite, but I think that they are very usual key processes in a lot of companies…

To clarify the requirement please review attached image.

Thanks, but we know that functionality and it does not cover what I explained. Invoice groups are for consolidating many invoices in one parent invoice, but still you can’t manage 1 Sales Order —> n Shipments —> m invoices.

Thanks anyway

Closest you get in NetSuite is:

RE: Usual shipping and invoicing processes

You dont normally get consolidated shipments for multiple orders. Invoices are linked to one sales order.

Ok, thanks a lot again battk.

Would it be possible that exist a suiteapp that cover the consolidated shipment and invoicing in the way I asked?

No. at best you create custom records to aggregate the transactions.
