Best Practice for online purchases?

What is the work flow for making raw material purchases from online vendors?

We have a number of suppliers we purchase from that we purchase directly from their website. Since the purchase is immediately charged to a credit card, what is the best way to handle the PO->Receipt->Invoice->Payment work flow?

How are other folks handling this situation in ERPNext?

Thanks for any suggestions!

On placing order:

  • make po
  • get items from po in purchase invoice
  • select “is paid” in invoice and specify cash/bank account
  • save and submit.

On receipt:

  • get items from po into purchase receipt
  • save and submit
