With the handy dropdown you can just select your terms from the list! Add a Default Note – With the Default Note section you can add a generic message for all your customers.

The information can be changed when needed and provides up to 400 characters for the message.Choose the Next Invoice # - Allows you to use your own invoice numbering system by entering the starting number in the box. When you finished your modifications, just click Save Invoice Settings for your changes to take effect.
  • A example of an invoice created in Fusebill. This invoice includes the customer logo, and custom notes in the Default Notes section.
  • Via the Payment Methods option, found under each of your customers, you the flexibility to customize each customers Payment Method, Terms, Invoice Frequency and set the Invoice Date going forward.For Terms – the Terms you set up under the Invoice settings is prepopulate with the default Terms you set up under Account Settings. You can override the default to any of the other options that appear via the drop down, giving you the ability to customize terms per customer.Send Invoices every – allows you to define when an invoice would be generated for this customer. To have the invoices created every month, you would enter a 1 in the first box and choose Month from the dropdown box. Other options include quarter and year, providing you the flexibility to create almost any invoice frequency for your customers.Override next Invoice date – allows you to determine the next invoice date. While the system will create and send the initial invoice, you can override the original invoice date, setting a new date for this customers invoices going forward. Currency – will display your default currency. This field cannot be changed.
  • If you have existing customers you want to change from Credit Card payment to AR, the steps are simple. From the Customer tab, locate the customer you want to change.Click Details.Click on Payment MethodOn the “Change current customer’s payment method to”, change from Credit Card to AR.Modify any of the option under AR, and when ready click on Update AR Settings to save.
  • With the addition of Fusebill’s Invoicing/AR Suite, there is now a tab that displays all of your customers invoices. The invoices are found under Customer Details via the INVOICE tab, and displays all of a customer’s past invoices, and includes Invoice #, Status, Posted Date, Due Date, Total Amount and Amount Due on each Invoice. There is also a link to Download the invoice. Other than the statuses that may appear in the Status field, the Invoice grid for Credit Card Customers versus AR Customers are identical. Each column on the grid can be sorted Each invoice can be viewed by clicking on the PDF icon under the Download column. The Current invoice can be viewed and posted at any time.The status column will change depending on the status of the invoice:Due – the invoice is waiting for paymentOverdue – payment has not been received by the assigned due datePaid – invoice has no outstanding amount due
  • Other than the statuses that may appear in the Status field, the Invoice grid for Credit Card Customers versus AR Customers are identical. A Credit Card customers initial status should show as PAID. In the instance where Fusebill was unable to collect the payment, the Invoice status would show as Overdue. For an AR Customer, invoices would reflect the customers terms, so for a customer with terms other than Net 30, the initial status would be Due and once 30 days has passed, would change to Overdue. A customer with the Terms 0 would immediately be shown in an Overdue status. Along with the Past Invoices, there will always be a single invoice in the open status. It is found above the grid and labelled Current Invoice. All new financial records for the current period will be flagged as belonging to the Current invoice. The Current invoice can be reviewed and posted at any time, and will be replaced with a new Current invoice if posted.
  • There will always be a single current invoice that would reflect the status of Current if opened. Any new financial transaction are automatically assigned to the open invoice, including any regular subscription charges, manual charges, balance reductions, write offs or manual discounts. Invoice would be posted on Invoice Date.One of the options available with the Current invoice is the ability to post it at any time. This gives you the ability to create an manual invoice where once you add any manual charges, the invoice can be posted and emailed to the customer. This is a great option for items outside of your regular product components (ex. Consulting Fee, custom development, special projects) and allows you to post invoice outside of the regular invoice period. The Current invoice once posted will move to the Invoice Grid with a status of Due or Overdue, depending on the customer’s terms.
  • Adding Manual Charges to the Current Invoice is simple.From Accounting Functions, available when you are in Customer Details, choose Manual Charge. You are able to enter an Amount and Description, with up to 200 characters available for the description field.When finished, click on Submit Charge.The Current invoice can be posted at anytime, giving you the ability to create an invoice outside of the customers regular billing period. Once posted, the invoice will move down to the Invoice grid and reflect the appropriate status based on the customers terms. This will not interfere with the customers default invoice date in any way.Once posted, the if you are configured to send invoices via email, the invoice will be sent to your customer via email.
  • For AR customers, invoices will be sent out to the Email Address configured in the Customer Details. The email will be generated and sent once the invoice has been posted. The email has aPDF copy of the invoice attached.
  • As mentioned earlier, the payment grid provides information on invoices that are in a current, outstanding and paid status.Each invoice can be downloaded and reviewed or forwarded to your customer. If you open an invoice, the invoice will reflect the status on the invoice grid. The next few slides will review the differences between a Paid or Due/Overdue invoice.
  • A Due or Overdue invoice will reflect a Due or Overdue status. The Amount Due should reflect the total amount owing, but if a partial payment has been made, as in the Overdue example, you can see it outlines the amount already paid and reflects the actual amount owing.In the case where you receive a payment for a customer via check, and the check is returned as non payable, you can do an adjustment via the Accounting functions that will reverse the payment on the invoice and move the invoice back into a Due or Overdue status.
  • A PAID invoice will reflect the PAID status and will show a zero dollar balance.In the case where you receive a payment for a customer via check, and the check is returned as non payable, you can do an adjustment via the Accounting functions that will reverse the payment on the invoice and move the invoice back into a Due or Overdue status.
  • When entering checks or cash payments into the system, you would use the Manual Payment option via Accounting Functions. When a payment is received and an invoice is paid in full, the status will change from Due or Overdue to Paid. For invoices that are only partially paid, the status will remain as Due or Overdue and the actual amount owing will be reflected in the Amount Due column. Any information entered in the Description field on the Manual Payment screen will be captured in the transaction log.
  • There are times when an AR customer wants to make a onetime payment via Credit Card, this can be done using the Manual Payment option under ACCOUNTING FUNCTIONS.For an AR customer, under ACCOUNTING FUNCTIONS, choose Manual Payment. Change the Payment Type to Credit Card. The screen will update and a new section, Credit Card Information, will appear. Enter in the Amount, Description and the Credit Card details, including Name on Card, Card Number, Card Type, Card Expiration and CVV on the card. Once all needed information has been added, click on Submit Payment. The payment will be reflected on outstanding invoices, changing any that have been paid in full to the PAID status. As this is just another method of a manual payment, any information entered in the Description field will be reflected in the Transaction log for that customer.When a payment is received and an invoice is paid in full, the status will change from Due or Overdue to Paid. For invoices that are only partially paid, the amount still owing will be reflected in the Amount Due column. The amount paid will be reflected on the ielcted on the Invoice GridThe customers Payment Method will remain as AR. The Credit Card data entered will not be stored in the Fusebill vault.
  • Our new AR Aging Report gives you insight into your AR Accounts, providing details on current monies owing as well as information for customers who are overdue. Knowing which customers are outside of their committed terms, gives you insight into which customers need to call to determine expected payment date. Please keep in mind that the amounts in each column may include one or multiple invoices.To determine which invoices are outstanding for a customer, via the Fusebill UI, locate customer, click on details for that customer. Click on Invoices and the invoice grid will open. From here you are able to see each invoice for the customer and the current status.
  • Manage your invoiced clients with these related features:Branded Invoices: add your logo and contact information to invoices;Customer communications: customizable emails to deliver invoices, and warn of past due payments.Account level credit limits: control risk.Record offline payments and optionally link to specific invoices.Online Invoice Access: secure self-serve portal allows customers to access their old invoices and payment receipts.Real Time Reporting: view outstanding payments and receivable aging reports.
