Welcome to Magento 2 tutorial, in this post I will talk with you about a very important part in Magento. In the previous post, I have write about Manage Magento 2 orders, when any customers place an order, there is a automatic order in back-end with “Pending status”. And after finishing the payment, customers will receive notification about the arrived day of product. And what next?
Yes, it is Invoice!
It is about invoice in Magento 2, in this post I will talk with you some remarkable things about Magento 2 invoice. So what is invoice in Magento 2? Invoice appears when customers finish a purchase process, store owners receive payment. You don’t need to create only 1 invoice for the entire order, you can create more than 1 invoice for any order. For example, a customers buy 3 kinds of product, you can create 3 invoice with each invoice for just only kind of product.
In the order process, You can upload a high-resolution logo for the invoice, and include the Order ID in the header. To customize the invoice template with your logo, see: Preparing Your Invoice Logo.
Creating an invoice for an order converts the temporary sales order into a permanent record of the order that cannot be canceled. A new invoice page looks similar to a completed order, with some additional fields. Every activity that is related to an order is noted in the Comments section of the invoice. Normally, orders are invoiced and shipped after payment is received. However, if the method of payment is a purchase order, the order can be invoiced and shipped before payment is received. You can generate an invoice with a packing slip, and also print shipping labels from your carrier account. A single order can be divided into partial shipments which are invoiced separately, if necessary. Some credit card payment methods complete the invoicing step as part of the process when Payment Action is set to “Authorize and Capture.” In such a case, the Invoice button does not appear, and the order is ready to ship. Before an invoice can be printed, it must first be generated for the order. To view or print the PDF, first download and install a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader.
