A purchase request is a document detailing required items, the number required and when they will be required. Once approved it becomes a purchase order. A purchase request is an unapproved purchase order. The purchase request details what items and services are required, the quantity, supplier, and associated costs.
A purchase order is used by a buyer to place an order and is issued before delivery. An invoice is issued by a seller using invoicing software after an order is delivered. It defines the amount the buyer owes for the purchased goods and the date by which the buyer needs to pay.
