New Invoice Feature Supports Combined Setup and Recurring Fees

New Product Update – Invoices: We Now Support Setup Fee in Recurring Invoices

Overview

We’re excited to announce a significant enhancement to our invoicing system. You can now include an initial setup fee alongside a monthly recurring charge in a single invoice. Previously, you needed two separate invoices for this, but not anymore.

What’s New

  • Single Invoice for Setup and Recurring Charges: You can now add a recurring product with a setup fee to a single recurring invoice. This update simplifies billing by generating two line items for the same product: one with the setup fee and one with the recurring price.
  • Streamlined Future Invoices: For all subsequent invoices, the setup fee line item will be automatically removed, leaving only the recurring charge to be billed.

How to Use

  1. Create a Product with a Setup Fee:
    Go to the product section, create a product with a price type set as recurring, and add a setup fee.
  2. Generate a Recurring Invoice:
    Create a recurring invoice from the invoices section.
  3. Add the Product with a Setup Fee:

Add the product that includes a setup fee into the recurring invoice.

  1. Two Line Items Appear:
    Two line items for the product will be displayed, with the suffix “Setup Fee” added to the setup part of the price.
  2. Future Invoices:
    All auto-generated invoices will only include the recurring element of the price.

Why Did We Build This?

This feature addresses the need for service providers to collect a signing fee along with monthly recurring charges conveniently. By consolidating these into a single invoice, the invoicing process becomes more efficient and user-friendly.
