    Hello Guys,

    I'm not to sure if this had been asked before. .
    I've just completed a job for a new client. .
    They have emailed me a purchase order.
    what I normally do for my existing customers is just send an invoice and payment is processed..

    Question is: Do I send the invoice as normal and add the purchase order number to the invoice? or how does it work..

    Many Thanks

    Flinn

    Some firms if you send them an invoice without a purchase order number on the invoice will not get paid so make sure you put it on there. Also might be a good idea to scan photo copy the origanal and send it back to them enclosed so is easier for them to process it.

    Yeah some companies are funny without a p/o number
    Some need to have traceability for every penny spent

    Hello Davy boy,

    Thanks for your reply mate..

    What I've done in the past is when I complete a job for my existing customers. I get it signed off.
    so they have a copy of the signing of sheet and so do I..
    Then send them a copy of the signing off sheet along with the invoice..

    But in future it will be all three..
    signing off sheet
    purchase order
    and invoice.

    Thanks for your reply
    every bit of knowledge helps

    hope this helps who ever needs it
    what a great forum we have!!!

    Recently my mate got an app for his phone which allows him to send invoices p/o etc by e mail
    Can even get customer to sign on screen to confirm work done then send signed invoice to them to get paid

    Am going to have a look when i get home tomorrow

    I think it's called invoice to go or something like that
    You can design your invoice and then send etc
