Definition from Mamut:
En ordre kan ha status Restordre. Dette betyr at deler av ordren har vært levert og fakturert.

Det genereres en restordre når du velger å endre antallet som skal leveres på ordren, og deretter fakturerer en ordre. Restordren behandles som en ny ordre i systemet. Ved utskrift av restordren, vil du få opprinnelig ordrenummer med på utskriften.

Example sentence(s):
  • Det er dessverre ikke mulig å bestille varer, som er i restordre, over nettet. Er en ønsket vare i restordre, kan du føye den til din huskeliste. ... - CC Hobby
