If you are requested to submit electronic invoices through Unimarket, then you have two options:
- Invoice Order (PO Flip) provides you with the ability to simply login to your Unimarket account to create electronic invoices from the orders you have received.
- Integration is an option if you want to automate the process of sending invoices directly from your system to customers using a cXML electronic format. You can find more information on the Invoice Integration Overview page.
Invoice Order (PO Flip)
Invoice Order functionality provides you with the ability to create electronic invoices through the Unimarket application by locating the order and 'flipping' it into an invoice for payment. The invoices are sent through the application to your customer electronically, then matched at the customer end.
|Note: Before you start invoicing customers you will need to setup your invoicing details so that the correct remittance and tax information is populated on your invoices. To setup invoicing navigate to the right hand Tasks menu and select the Company Profile option, and then click into the Invoicing and Payment tab.|
Create an Invoice
There are three ways to create an invoice against orders that have been raised through Unimarket:
1. From the Order
- Locate the order you would like to invoice by selecting View Orders from the left hand hamburger menu and search for the order by using the search options available.
- Access the order by clicking on the order number and select Invoice Order in the top right of the screen.
- Enter the Invoice Number, Invoice Date and add an Attachment of your invoice (required fields).
- Enter any additional information you would like to provide, this can include due date, comments or any other attachments you would like to add.
Note: Any lines that do not yet have a submitted invoice against them will have the checkbox to the left of them selected. If you need to create a partial invoice deselect any lines that do not need to be invoiced and they will appear in a lighter grey color to show they are deselected with the quantity at 0.
- If any changes to the line item detail from the order to the invoice are necessary (e.g. submitting a partial invoice, invoicing a different amount etc.), ensure you edit the details for the lines.
- If shipping charges are required, enter the shipping amount in the box below the invoice lines on the left.
- Click Create to submit the invoice for matching. The View Invoice page will show the matching status for all invoices.
