Keep track of your client's business and the status of invoices. Blinksale Invoices helps you always be on top of managing your Company Invoices. It will give you the convenience of issuing Invoices quickly because the more you delay the issuance and submission of invoices, the later your cash flow will be.

Edit Invoices and how to send them
An invoice is a bill of the products and services that you have provided to your client.
1. To edit your invoices, you are going to select Invoices tab on the left-hand side or from your main dashboard.
2. This is the invoice dashboard where you can see the total amount you have billed, the total amount due, and the total amount paid to you.
This will also provide you a breakdown by month and how much money you either have out for open invoices. For instance, you can see which invoices have been closed and how much they take up your monthly income. You can filter your invoices based on their status.
Things to keep in mind:
A closed invoice is the one that has been completed, the work has been done for the client, and they have paid you.
A draft is an invoice that has not yet been sent to the client and is still in the editing phase.
An open invoice is the one that has been worked on and completed and has been sent to the client for them to pay.
The past due invoice would not have been paid yet and it's delinquent already.
Anything that's past due means the money has not been paid to you yet.
3. To edit one of your open invoices, just click on the specific invoice You'll be taken to see any of the comments that have been left edited. And using the right pane, you can click edit, send, print, download pdf, delete, etc, and press save once you're done editing.
