Invoices are created for each successful auction. An invoice is generated in one of three ways:
By the Buyer: If the Buyer pays for an item before the Seller has created an invoice, one is automatically created at payment time. It is visible to the Buyer in the Dashboard, via the Purchases link under the Invoicing tab.
By the Seller: Once a successful auction closes, the Seller can view the sales data via the New Sales link under the Invoicing Tab. From here, he or she can view the information, make any changes, and create the invoice. Once created, the invoice is then viewable under the Invoiced Sales link.
Automatically overnight: Each night, any successful auction that does not have an invoice associated with it automatically has one generated. Note: If a buyer has mutliple successful auctions from the same seller and none of them are invoiced prior to midnight, the job will create one invoice for all sales. Sellers can split these invoices later if desired.
To view invoices, go to the Invoices tab on My Dashboard, then click on either New Sales or Invoiced Sales. Items that have been purchased will appear unless they have been archived.
