Historically, suppliers would issue an ‘order acknowledgement’ to advise the buyer that a purchase order had been received.  The order acknowledgement can become part of the ‘battle of the forms’.  The practice of issuing order acknowledgements has declined in some sectors, as individual transactions occur within a broader business framework, such as an over-arching contractual agreement.  See also Battle of the Forms.
