What is a purchase order from a car dealership?
I got pre-approved for a car loan from my bank. But before they'll approve the final loan, they want a purchase order from the dealer. What is this?
“A purchase order is a document that’s similar to a bill of sale, and it is a legally binding document to agree to purchase the car once signed by the buyer and dealership.
On this document, you’ll find the selling price, all fees, rebates, and any down payment made.
Your bank wants this document to verify the amount of the loan you need, as well as to know if you’re actually going to possess the car through a legally binding contract.”
