Ticket Billing - Sales Reporting Notes

Since shipments against ticket billing orders are not considered sales until the invoice is produced, monthly sales reports can be inaccurate if the billing period is not "monthly".  To take this into consideration, selection criteria on the sales reports can be made to include "shippers" that are for ticket billing, and to exclude ticket billing invoices (this would allow you to recognize ticket billing sales for sales reporting purposes at the time the original shipment is processed).  Ticket billing shippers can also be excluded from sales reports and the ticket billing invoices included, to allow the sales to be recognized at the time the pending records are closed and the actual invoice to the customer is created.  Regardless of the method used for reporting, the accounting system records the sale at the time that the pending records are cleared, and the resulting invoice is posted to the current period.
