A credit note is a commercial note sent by the brand to the buyer and it's related to a particular order and a customer. It is used as proof of the reduction in sales. You can create a credit note only when the invoice is in Open or Paid status.
A credit note can be served under the following circumstances:
- An invoiced product has been canceled: if one or certain products are canceled, but the customer has paid for them. You don't have to delete and redo a new invoice, you can simply create a create note.
- The customer returns the invoiced products: you should create a credit note for the returned products.
