CONSIGNMENT PROCESS OVERVIEW
Consignment process in which the products shipped to the customer are still owned by the company until they are sold by the the customer to a third party.
It Contains the following process:
• Consignment Returns
• Consignment Pick-up
• A Consignment Fill-Up document ,stock is physically sent to the customer but no billing is done as the stock is still owned by the Vendor.
• A Consignment Issue document removes the stock from Consignment stock and Bills the customer .
• A customer is billed for stock which was not really used, a Consignment Return is created with reference to the Issue which puts the materials back into Consignment stock and gives the customer credit.
• If products that are in Consignment stock are found to be damaged or no longer needed then a Consignment Pick-up is created to move the stock from Consignment back to stock (no credit is issued because the customer was never billed).
