We have very often orders which we split in several shipments and would like to invoice as we ship.
I know we can just make one order into several single orders but we do not always know up front what to ship when.
Is there an app or a simple way to invoice based on a partial delivery (and only invoice what is delivered)?
I am interested in a better invoicing app as well. Invoicing has been the most challenging aspect of moving to Shopify Plus. Shopify has all the information but getting an invoice out that is accurate and meets the scenarios of a complicated business has been a nightmare honestly. It is simple math.
We use Simplio for the scenario you are talking about. It has the option to show fulfillment status....so they see the whole order....but it shows what has fulfilled. We tag all orders needing an invoice when they are created using FLOW. We filter orders using this tag and payment status and fullfillment status. This gives us all order that need just one invoice, which we bulk send. And all invoices that need a second invoice, for these we bulk send and tag with Needs2ndInvoice. Then when the fullfillment status changes we send the second invoice. This works great for credit card orders and takes about 5 minutes a day total.
For net 30 payment terms we have different process unfortunately.
Would love a new invoicing app........better yet Shopify should add it to be native and allow Net 30 payments native to shopify. They could capture a tone of revenue and simplify this for us.
