I recently sold an image that was published in a magazine in the UK and they want me to send them an invoice so payment can be made. This is my first time doing this, are there programs etc to produce one so I can do it up and send via email. Normally the magazine just send me payment but with it being in the UK they have a different system in place. Currently I have no apps or programs to do an electronic invoice but have no issues with buying an app for my mac to produce this. Any info or help at all would be much appreciated.

Paul

I'd just put my details at the top of an email, add the words invoice with the details and send it off. No real need for an app IMO. If you want to go a bit further then get your headed paper up in Office (or other word processor app) and pretty much do the same thing. No real need for anything fancier than that. It's pretty much so that they have a record of what the payment was for, to give the accountant/tax man.

If you have MS Word installed on your Mac, it has a template for an invoice.
I would imagine Pages has something similar...

Or if you have a paypal account, send an invoice through it. Payment comes back to your account with record well kept. Only you need to pay paypal fee per transaction.

Awesome, was able to sort it out. Ending up finding an app for my IPAD called Invoice2go, free and fairly easy to customize. Thanks for the posts and feedback.

Did I read this correctly?

The image WAS published, and they are asking about the invoice after the fact?


I use manual exposure settings on the copy machine

Pretty common in a commercial setting.

Quote > PO/order > fulfillment > invoice

I'm certainly familiar with POs in a commercial setting, but I usually deal with them on material.

I guess as long as your contracts are good, there shouldn't be much to worry about, but I'd have concern about my image being printed/published and getting paid after. Once it's published and in other hands, not much you can do...

True, I made the leap of assuming that there were governing T's and C's in play. Not always a safe assumption.
