Order Letters


What Is An Order Letter?

An order letter is usually written when a company purchases or buys  or orders goods or services from another party. An order letter can also be written by an individual who would like to buy or purchase goods or services. It normally states the exact name of the merchandise, the price, and the amount of payment being sent, the shipment/logistics company, the delivery dates and payment methods. If you have paid the goods/services, you are obliged to enclose the receipt on the letter.


How To Write An Order Letter

Seven things to do when you write an order letter:

  1. If you write for the company you work for, the paper should have the letter head on it. Just type the date below the letter head. Make it right-aligned.

  2. Write the inside address. The company you are writing to.

  3. Write the subject. For example: Purchasing 10 sets of Computers

  4. Write salutation: Dear Seller/Dear Mr. Johnson

  5. Write the body of the letter. It has to include:

  • the opening sentence. Example: We would like to purchase the following items:

  • the name(s) of items/products with the specifications

  • the quantity

  • the price

  • the total price

  • the payment methods

  • the delivery date (deadline)

  • the delivery address

  • the person to contact and his/her phone number

  • Closing statement. Example: Thank you for your cooperation.

  1. Write the complimentary closing. Example: Sincerely, Sincerely yours, Yours truly, Yours respectfully

  2. Put your signature, name, and position


Make sure you check all the details in the body of the letter because it becomes a legally binding agreement between you and the seller.

There are two types of order letters:
  1. personal order letter
  2. company order letter
