Re: Consignation for shipping material

A suggestion:
- We've done for a project a module that allows to create invoice from a delivery order, while maintaining the compatibility with odoo sales-invoices control.

So:
I would suggest to do the above + mimicking the sale deposit process:
- When creating an invoice from delivery order
      - manually add the number of boxes (e.g. with a wizard)
      - add a sale order line for the number of boxes - order qty =0, delivered qty = as in the stock.picking
     - create the sales invoice

When the boxes are returned:
- return the boxes from the DO
- create a new sales invoice, which will automatically create a credit note
     
Cheers,
Dominique

Dear community,

I'm searching for a solution to handle "consignation" of products ("consigne" in French). There are 2 aspects we want to handle here:

1. Invoicing
2. Stock t the customer (how many boxes left at each customers facility)

The use case is: To deliver the customer we use X shipping boxes like those https://embalogik.com/produit/fruits-legumes-50-x-30-b/. For every customer, we want to keep the count of how many boxes he received and invoice/refund him when I deliver and take them back...
The behavior is similar to the one with consignation on bottles. We discussed it internally at Camptocamp and have 3 ideas:

1. Cheap solution: an integer field on res.partner to contain the quantity -> 100% manual, not very handy
2. delivery_package_fee that we developed and adds a fee on the SO using a service product -> we cover the invoicing, stock and refunds have to be handled manually
3, A new module that would handle, stock, invoicing and refunds -> seems to be really complicated for the benefit

What are your thoughts? Thank you very much!

Didier
