Order Processing



Quotes and sales orders are all part of the sales process. Sana supports all Microsoft Dynamics NAV sales documents.  Customers can place orders and create quotes as well as convert quotes into sales orders directly from a Sana webshop. A customer can convert quotes into sales orders from the sales quote details page in the Sana webshop which can be accessed from the quotes history.

Sana is very flexible and supports a lot of different scenarios of how your customers can create and pay their orders, sales managers and accountants process them.

To set up the checkout process and all its features the way that meets your requirements, you will need to configure the ordering settings in Sana Admin and in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

We recommend to read the following articles to learn more about ordering settings supported by Sana:

Set up order processing settings

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV click: Departments > Webshop > Webshops.

The table below provides description of the order processing settings in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Field Description
Order Type Select the order type. It can be a regular order or a quote. The selected order type defines the final sales document which will be created in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, when the order is placed from the Sana webshop.
Synchronized Basket Type This setting is used only with the order processing strategy that is optimized for large orders. This is the sales document (sales order or quote) which is used to calculate basket and during the checkout process until the order is submitted by the customer. The final sales document type that will be created in Microsoft Dynamics NAV after submitting the order by the customer is set in the Order type field.

For more information, see "Order Processing".
Quote Promotable by Default Use this option to allow or deny conversion of a quote into a sales order without approval.

If this option is enabled and the ordering process uses quotes which can be converted into sales orders, a customer can create a quote and convert it to a sales order directly from the Sana webshop. For such quotes the Quote Promotable checkbox is selected by default on the E-Commerce FastTab.

If this option is disabled, a customer can convert a quote to a sales order only when it is approved. When the quote is created in the Sana webshop, it should be checked by the sales manager in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. After this it can be approved by selecting the Quote Promotable checkbox on the E-Commerce FastTab. When the quote is checked and approved, the customer can convert it into the sales order in the Sana webshop.

If a customer edits a quote in the Sana webshop which has been already approved by the sales manager in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a customer will be able to convert this quote to the order only after it is approved again. This means that editing the approved quote requires a sales manager to approve it again in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and only after it the customer will be able to convert this quote to the order.

In case the Quote promotable by default option is enabled for the Sana webshop in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a customer can edit and convert quotes without approval. It is also not required to approve the quote again, if it has been changed by a sales agent.

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a sales quote has a Due Date. You can see it on the General FastTab. It is calculated based on the Payment Term Code set on the Customer Card, on the Payments FastTab. If the payment term is not set for the customer, the current date will be used as the due date of the quote. If the quote is not processed within the expiration period, it will expire, meaning that a customer will not be able to convert it into a sales order.


Payment discount

 NOTE

Payment discounts are used to encourage customers to settle their debts as soon as possible. It can be granted when a customer pays for the order or quote prior to the due date.

The table below provides the description of the fields necessary to set up a payment term.
