Orders

An order is a request made by a buyer to create/update an agreement with a one-time purchase or/and set of subscriptions. There are three types of Orders.

  • Purchase - A purchase order is the first order created in the lifecycle of an agreement. The purchase order is always the first order and there is only one within an agreement.

  • Change - A change order is a request to update the agreement. There can be multiple change orders in an agreement.

  • Termination - A termination order is a request to terminate the agreement or terminate a specific subscription within the agreement. There can be multiple termination orders.
