Customizing Invoices

An invoice is an email request for payment that you send to a buyer.  You can customize SixBit to specify whether or not you send invoices, and if so whether they should be sent automatically or not.  Also, you can customize the content of the invoice email that is sent to your buyer.




To customize invoices:

  1. Open the Ship Orders mode.      How?
  2. In the Email group in the ribbon bar, click the dialog launcher to open the Manage Email Templates window.


  1. From the Manage Email Templates window, select Invoice.


  1. Check "I would like to be able to send Invoices" if you will be sending invoices from SixBit.  If you uncheck this, then the icon will be removed from the ribbon bar and you won't have to see it anymore.
  2. To edit the contents of the Invoice, click the Edit button.  Your email template will be loaded into the HTML Editor.  You can refer to Using the HTML Editor to learn how to modify your email.
  3. Choose whether you want to Send an automatic Invoice. If checked, anytime a new sale is recorded, an invoice will be sent out after the specified number of hours.


It may take users a little while to process payments so you may want to give them a few hours to see if payment arrives before sending the invoice out.  


Automatic emails are sent by the SixBit Agent.  The agent is running in the background and checking for actions it needs to perform.   Please note that it can only send emails when your computer is turned on and connected to the internet.
