Existing Invoice Actions (View, Print, Create, Email, Duplicate, Email Due Reminder)

In many cases, creating an invoice is only the first step to getting paid, once an invoice has been created, you will often need to view, print, email, or duplicate the information to best serve your customers.

By clicking on an existing invoice within the Invoices section of your Helcim Commerce account, you can perform a variety of actions including view online, print, create PDF, send email copy, duplicate the invoice, send an email due reminder, or process a payment.

Here is a breakdown of how to perform each of these actions:

View Online

Selecting View Online will open your invoice in a new browser window. This will let you see what the invoice will look like for your customers. Here is an example of the online view: You also have the option of downloading the invoice as a PDF, or viewing the notes if there are any attached to the invoice.

If the invoice has not been paid yet, you will have an additional option to Process Payment and a reminder notice of when the invoice is due.
