Manage Invoices and Customer Payments


Create, edit, and apply payments to Customer Invoices.



An invoice is a document requesting payment for products and services. In this case, a sales invoice is provided to Customers of the Cheqbook user. The invoice usually includes the products/services, quantities, prices, and payment terms.

Although the terms can be interchangeable in real life, Cheqbook uses "bills" to refer to invoices you have to pay, and "invoices" to refer to sales you are requesting payment for.
