How do I Setup Custom Email Templates for my Invoices?

Updated on August 24, 2020 07:04AM by Admin

The Invoices Email Templates are pre-organized message formats that you can send to your customers. You can design an invoice email template, to make your email look standardized and professional rather than sending it as a plain text.

For instance: Consider an employee, who wants to send invoices to all his customers. Now, creating a template would be of primary help as the employee can just pick the layout, including the required messages, and send invoices quickly, thus saving time.

Note: By default, we have provided three standard email templates in the Invoices App, which can be modified according to your business requirements.

Email Template

  • While sending an invoice to your customer, the "Default" template will be fetched automatically.
  • Once the payment is done by the customer, then by clicking on "Send Payment
  • Notification”, the "Default Payment Notification" template will be fetched.
  • When an invoice is past due one, and while re-sending it, the "Default Past Due Notification" template will be fetched.

So, you can make use of these default templates or create your own custom email template accordingly.

Steps to Create Email Templates

  • Go to the Invoices App.
  • Click on “More (...)” icon → “Settings” → “Email” → “Email Templates”.

    • Template - Name of the template.
