Invoicing your Orders

πŸ‘

You can create multiple Invoices for one Order!

Invoices can be used to collect deposits or request payment for items ordered. For partial payments, create an Invoice for the payment amount you want to collect by editing the quantities to invoice.

Invoices

An Invoice is a request for payment from your customer. When paying with Credit Cards or Stripe ACH the invoice is created immediately and paid during checkout. Other payment methods can be set to create the invoice and email it to customers for payment.

The details of your customer's Payment are recorded to its own object and linked to the Invoice.

Invoices Grid

In Orders > Invoices all of your Invoices can be viewed together. You can add and remove tabs which filter records and display needed information. More details on Transaction Lists here.

Exporting Invoices

From your Invoice Grid you can select records and perform Bulk Actions on them. Such as Sending Email Reminder, Printing Invoice to PDF, and Exporting to CSV.


How to Invoice an Order

There are a few ways that your Orders can be Invoiced:

  • Invoices can be created manually on an Order. This enables you to Collect Deposits, or invoice only certain Order Items.
  • Payment Methods may create and pay Invoices on the Order.
  • Invoicing Automation can create the Invoice or send the Invoice by email when the rule's criteria is met.
  • Integrations such as ShipStation can automatically create Invoices for your orders.

Creating the Invoice

Orders can be manually invoiced by clicking Invoice at the top of your Order.


Changing the Items and Totals Invoiced

πŸ“˜

Discount, Surcharge, Shipping, and Tax totals can differ between the Order and an Invoice.

When Invoicing an Order, you can adjust the Qty of items to invoice, collect a deposit, and set the amounts being invoiced to your customer.

If you are not invoicing all order items at once, you may create additional invoices for the remaining open items on the Order.

The Payment Totals may be adjusted here by adding Shipping, Discount, Payment Surcharge or Tax. When entering a fee into these fields, you will need to click Update to save.

Send the Invoice or Capture Payment

πŸ‘

You can choose to send the Invoice to your customer, to process payment for it by Credit Card or ACH, or to simply mark the invoice as paid via an offline payment method.

When creating the invoice, select Invoice to create and email the Invoice to your Customer. You can set the Invoice Terms, Due Date, and allowed Invoice payment Methods.

Capture Offline and Pay Now will let you pay the customer's invoice through Offline and Online payment methods immediately. The customer will receive notification of their payment by email.
