This is essentialy the second phase, as we have created the order with the last two steps. In this phase the order is awaiting shipment from the supplier. Below are the steps to take for recording the awaiting and reception of your inventory for a Supply Order in PrestaShop 1.5.

In order to manage a Supply Order the Advanced Stock Management option must be enabled.
