More options to put a customer on Credit Hold
If understand correctly, the only way to place a customer on Credit Hold/Stop Credit is for them to reach their credit limit.
However, reaching credit limit is not the only reason a customer may be placed on Credit Hold.
So the current workaround suggested by Dear is to change their status from Active to Deprecated, however this could indicate they are an obsolete customer.
It would be great if we could have the ability to perform either/both of the following additional methods for Credit Hold:
- Have a simple check box on the customer's Dear profile which puts them on Credit Hold, and disallows adding/fulfilling/shipping/processing new and existing Sales Orders or Invoices. Ideally you would be able to set User permissions as to who has the ability to Edit the Credit Hold status of a Customer
- Along the same lines as the credit limit function, create a rule whereby when the Customer has outstanding amounts overdue (which is determined by their payment terms) they are put onto Credit Hold, until payment has been made. With the 2-way sync in Xero this could work really well. Ideally you would be able to have an editable 'grace period' from when the customer reaches overdue to when Dear puts them on Credit Hold... e.g. overdue by X days.. the X should be customisable in General Settings
