Sales & Invoicing

  • Paying vendors for goods and services with a credit card is common. How does Wave Handle this use case? I want to be able track my vendor purchases - see how much I have purchased from OfficeDepot. So the expense needs to be associated with the vendor but the payment associated with the credit card. Does Wave provide a guide for this use case?

  • Hi! Wave newbie here. On any given week, I have multiple customers--some recurring, some one-time service users. I'm going to set up my repeat customers as a CUSTOMER, but what about my one-timers? Should I create a CUSTOMER sale for them or make a transaction only? To give you an example: In a 5 day work week, I can have up to 25+ customers …

  • Hi there everyone! We have a dance and drama academy and just started using Waves to do our accounting. I have to re-create the last 6 months of invoices for each of our students, and then record the payments. Simple enough most of the time. But here is the scenario I haven't figured out how to solve: We send an invoice monthly. One month, Stu…

  • Hello, what does Skip Sending do? Does it just Skip sending the email? It seems like the Invoice is still posted on the Customers Portal even if Skip Sending is pressed. I guess I will need to leave Invoices in Draft state until I am ready to send?

  • I'm in the rental property business and it is often that we charge late fees for rent not received by the 5th of each month. It would really be nice if the late fee would auto add. I use freshbooks which does this and also been a quickbooks user for years. I came across Wave and would like to continue use but didn't realize such a simple featur…

  • Hello, I have a photo booth rental company and I just had a customer cancel due to weather. I refunded them their payment less deposit. My invoice now shows a payment due. How can I close this invoice without deleting it altogether? Thanks for your input!

  • Hi there, Just wondering if there's a way to select multiple invoices and send them to the same customer all in one email, rather than as individual ones?

  • Hi, I created an invoice via Wave and the client paid via PayPal. The invoice was for £124.50. The PayPal funds that appear on my bank statement is £120.07 leaving me with merchant fees of £4.43. When I select the £120.07 that appears on my statement, I try to mark it as the invoice of £124.50, split the deposit with merchant fees to make…

  • Am I correct that pending credit card payments used to show on the Dashboard? It's been a while since we've been paid by credit card, but we've received a few credit card payments recently and they're buried somewhere in the menu instead of being front and center the way I remember. Is this something that has changed, or part of the recent bug, or…

  • I'm wondering how to go about a scenario. I sent my tenant an invoice through Wave for his rent figuring it would help keep records for his tenancy and manage receipts for rent payments. Unfortunately he has now gone in and set up auto-pay for his rent after I kindly asked him to pay by check or money order only. You would think I could just discu…

For example, let's say the invoice is $50. If someone doesn't pay on January, then the February's invoice should be 50 + 50 outstanding balance and March…

I entered invoices for member dues and payments on the invoices when the members made payments. These show up as deposits in my view of banking transactions. Then, when Waves updated my banking information by …

  • I tried searching for my question in existing threads so apologies if this is a repeat. How do I enter income/payments that aren't a "sale" exactly, or more to the point, don't have an invoice? The precise situation I have in mind is as follows: I put on a ticketed event and sell tickets through EventBrite. Tickets are $12 each and EventBrit…

  • Hi. I'm new to Wave and am trying to determine if it is a good fit for me as a handyman/contractor. Typically, my invoices for service calls show the reason for the call and then the description of work done. It seems I must create a "product" for each job, as each job will be unique in description and in price. This will result in hundreds of …

  • I have a client that is paying a recurring invoice by credit card. He would like to do it by ACH. I know I can switch to manual payment then he could use the bank routing and account numbers to do ACH, but will he be able to set this up so it will be paid automatically like the credit card does now?

I recently generated a statement for all unpaid invoices. The credit invoice fails to show up on the statement. As the credit as yet to be applied against the open invoice of the pr…

  • In posting a vendor's invoice we are not give the option to input the vendor's payment terms. Wave allows one to input the due date. But what if the vendor allows a 2% discount if payment is tendered in 10 days after the invoice date? Wave does not provide for these types of vendor payment terms. I am wondering how other Wave users handle such ter…

  • I'm a new Wave user working for a construction company. We ask for a 20% deposit, then a 50% on day 5, 25% on day 10 and balance on the final day of the project. Because the payment due dates are based on work done, the dates need to be adjustable, and obviously the amount changes too. What is the best way to create an invoice for this?
