Sending bills or payment receipts

Yapla lets you send bills or receipts to your members, participants or donors. First of all, make sure that the Accounting feature is activated, as it is directly linked to the management of your bills. Let's find out how to send a bill or receipt.

Edit a bill template

Billing templates are created by default in your account with basic settings.

To edit one of the templates, click on the Settings option in the Accounting feature.

Then click on the Bills tab to access the templates and their settings. This option is available with the Galaxy Plan.

This tab also lets you determine the number format of your bills.


Sending out the bill

Although you can attach a PDF to any communication, sending the billling must be associated with a specific communication, in order to contain the right information.
