How to send an invoice?
There are multiple options when it comes to sending an invoice:
- Online invoicing
Sending an invoice by post puts the invoice straight in the receiver’s hands, but can be slow. Sending an invoice by email is instant and the email can be saved, forwarded, and found easily. Online invoicing allows you to send a link and you can include a pay now option to immediately request payment.
What is an invoice number?
An invoice number is a unique identifier systematically assigned to individual invoices. Invoice numbers ensure that invoices can be easily documented and identified, making it easier to track payments. An invoice number can be automatically generated using invoicing software, or you can manually create one.
Is an invoice a receipt?
No, an invoice is not a receipt. An invoice is issued before payment and is a request for payment for goods or services that have to be rendered. A receipt on the other hand is a document issued after payment or services are made.
