There is no automatic link between an order and an item record attached
to the same bib record on Innopac, so you can receive an order, create an
item and catalog (i.e. upgrade the bib if necessary) and circulate the
item before an invoice is added.
The order status will be "o" (on order) until the invoice is paid but
this does not stop you from circulating the item. Depending on how long
you display the order record (SHOWOREC wwwoption) your OPAC may show the
item as "being processed" and "available" but you can easily suppress
the order record if necessary.
