Changing when an invoice is posted to a customer account.
The billing period controls when an invoice is posted to a customers account. The typical billing period is 7 days, but you can change this billing period, so that the invoice is generated when you want it to be.
To change the billing period, follow the steps below:
1) Go to the Setup tab. This will take you to the Settings sub-tab.
2) The second setting on this page will be the Billing Period. The number in the billing period is how many days before the due date that you want the invoice to post to the customers account. For example: If an invoice is due on the first and the Billing Period is set to seven (7). The invoice will be posted 7 days before the first of the month (due date). To clarify, a month with 30 days will be posted on the 24th and a month with 31 days will be posted on the 25th (February would be posted the 22nd (leap year: 23rd).
3) Click Save at the bottom of the page to save any changes.
