An invoice is a document that outlines service or goods provided in exchange for payment or trade. The party requesting payment (“payee”) creates the invoice writing their details, client’s details, description of goods or services, and the total amount owed. The preferred payment method should be included and once complete should be sent to the client (“payer”) via e-mail, standard mail, or text message.
