View Full Version : Advance Invoice and Schedule

10-06-2004, 11:14 AM
A customers pays one month in advance for lawn service. I create an invoice showing the mowing dates for the month coming up then mail. Then, I add him to the gopher schedule. After the month is completed I generate invoices and another one is created. How would you handle creating advance invoices and generate invoices using schedule?. I know TMI. Thanks, LCME

How about not charging per cut with each scheduled job? That way you won't double bill them.

Here is another idea.
Use the auto-billing feature. Have the line item say monthly contract fee for 'the next month.' Set their monthly price here.
In the schedule feature, have the job price at $0.00, so you don't double bill them.
Now you will be able to generate your invoice once a month at the end and send it out which will show the customer when you were at their location and a line item that shows they owe you for next months service.
