The following article outlines three order item types: One-time orders, recurring orders and blanket orders.

One-Time Order

A one-time order item type is a non-recurring purchase order for a specific quantity of items at a set price, with a defined delivery date. It's typically used for standalone purchases that don't form part of a regular requirement. Once the items are delivered and paid for, the transaction is complete.

Recurring Order

Blanket Order

Blanket purchase orders allow you to procure goods or services multiple times over a set period of time.
