Full Answer

Some businesses have an order table that includes a list of all products the company offers. Many input the orders individually. The table includes a larger column for the name or identification number of the item ordered. The next column indicates the unit price of items ordered, while the column following has the quantity ordered. The final column is the total price for all units ordered.

The totals section belongs under the order table. The first total combines the prices of all items ordered and is pre-tax and shipping. The customer information goes either above the order table on the right of the paper or just under the totals section. The payment section include the type of payment used, such as credit card, cash or electronic payment. It includes a section for credit card information, such as the card number and expiration date.

The bottom of the order form includes the company's policies concerning items ordered. Many order forms also include a box marked "Notes" for any additional information needed. This is typically followed by a statement of thanks for the client's business.
