Adding Products and Services to Invoices and Estimates
Every vcita invoice and estimate is built using the following template:
The Items section of an estimate/invoice is the itemized list of services or products you are billing your client for. You may apply discounts and taxes per line item. The total is calculated automatically.
Adding Items to the List
vcita automatically populates the items catalog based on your service menu. You may also add custom items on the fly, and save them for future use.
To add items:
- Start in the invoice or estimate builder and scroll to the Items section.
- Click Please select an item and select a service or product from the dropdown.
- Adjust the Quantity and click Add.
Adding a New Item to the Items List
If you want to add a new paid service, all you have to do is add the new service to your services menu, and it will automatically appear in your catalog.
