Returned Items / Cancelling Shipped Orders (ekmPowershop)

Whether you're dealing with items a customer has returned, or an order which now needs to be cancelled which has already been marked as shipped, you will need to create a sales credit in Brightpearl. This will allow you to receive back any inventory and create all the necessary accounting for sales and tax, and refunds if required.
