Billings: How do you send a 'normal' (non-timed) invoice for sold inventories on a flat-fee basis?

Asked by makemo (531points) September 5th, 2008

I purchased Billings 2 a while ago and haven’t had time to look further into it until now.

I know it’s geared towards service type of businesses and timed slips, etc. But one would expect form such a well-merited program, that it can also let you create normal invoices, for products sold.

In my case, I have an Edirol R4 portable field recorder that I’m going to sell to another company. I can’t for the life of me, figure out how to make a common standard invoice for this purpose, in Billings 2…

If anyone can help me out, I’d be very thankful. I felt going through Marketcircle’s support forum would take too long time, and I was thinking that asking in Fluther might bring me the answer quicker. :)

Create a new slip and set it’s ‘Kind’ as ‘Flat’. Then in put the unit price in the rate field and add one hour to the log. I don’t know if that’s how you’re supposed to do it, but that’s how I do it.

If you have the display duration set as HH:MM (in the timers tab in prefs), the quantity on the invoice will be a little odd as it will show up like hours, but if you change it to decimal, you’ll end up with a more normal looking quantity figure for fixed-price items.

Thanks for the answer, damien. That might just do the trick!

Alas, I was a bit disappointed that it doesn’t seem to be an allround invoice app, but rather it’s more targeted towards service businesses (such as mine, but sometimes even these companies might want to sell one or two physical items).
