Customizing Invoice Settings

In Wavebid we have the ability to change your invoices in a number of ways ranging from the number of copies, to the color in some areas. Below is a guide on how make these changes. This feature is rather intuitive, and there are a lot of options. The headers are used to help you find what you are looking to change, while you work your way down the page.


Basics Of Changing Invoice Settings

 1. First Navigate to My Links > Company > Accounting Settings > Invoice Settings.


2. On this page you can see the list of the available Invoice Settings. You can save as many as you would like. To edit the Configuration you can click on the pencil icon, if the configuration is already created.


3. To create a new Invoice setting you can click on the "+" button on the top right.


4. To create an invoice you MUST enter in the name, and click save. The rest of the changes are optional.



Setting a Default and Deleting

 5. To set your sale as a Default you can check this box (located under the word "Default").

*The Invoice Setting Selected as "Default" is the one used when the invoices are emailed*


6. You can also delete the Configuration by clicking on the delete button on the top right, however you can not delete the selected Default Configuration until after you create a new configuration that is set as the default.


7. Below are the other options you can change to make your Configuration unique.




1. Show Entire Item Description on invoices - This feature has the option to turn on or off the ability to see the full description on the invoices. Turning it off saves space on the invoice, by limiting the length of the description that is displayed.


2. Display the location in the description on invoices - This Checkbox will turn on a feature that adds the location listed for the item to the description box (just on the invoice), so bidders can see the location along with the other info for the invoice. This is normally used in conjunction with the Show entire item description feature.
