  • Check formatting, spelling & grammar and ensure invoices are correct before sending. Unprofessional invoices can affect your brand image and even prevent you from getting paid!
  • Create an email address specifically for dealing with invoicing and accounting. For example, set up and send all your invoices from that email. This will create a stronger impact on the buyer when they are asked to be pay.
