Use this form to specify the terms of delivery that are used by the company accounts, customers, and vendors. The terms of delivery specify the conditions for an item's transfer from seller to buyer. Terms of delivery are used on sales orders and purchases orders. International delivery terms include FOB (freight on board) and CIF (carriage, insurance, and freight).

You can specify the terms of delivery in the following circumstances:

  • When you set the conditions for change in ownership of the transferred products from seller to buyer.

  • When you specify the location of taxation.

    In some countries or regions, tax is charged according to the tax regulations that govern the recipient. In these cases, you can include information about the location of taxation in the terms of delivery. Tax is determined based on the tax laws applicable in the state or county of the delivery address.


The terms of delivery can be specified as follows:

  • For each customer in the Customers form

  • For each vendor in the Vendors form

  • When you enter sales and purchase orders

  • When you enter sales and vendor invoices
