Get started with invoicing

Sending your first invoice can be a liberating experience, you are now ready for action and it’s the first step to getting payments through the door.

As Mark Twain said, “The secret to getting ahead is getting started”, here are the four simple steps you need to send your first invoice using the Solo & Smart App. If you don’t have the App yet you can download it from the Apple or Android app stores.

 

Once your invoice has been created you will be able to monitor its progress and keep track of any unpaid invoices.

  1. Start a new invoice

  • iPhone & Android: click on the plus symbol in the bottom menu bar and select invoice from the pop-up menu.
  • Web/Desktop: click on the ‘Invoices’ tab in the side menu bar and select ‘Create Invoice’.

 

  1. Add your client

  • iPhone & Android: Select the red box in the top right of the screen to add your client. Either choose from your list of existing clients or add a new client.
