I want to provide discounts to a few invoices I raise on monthly basis. I am looking for a tool which adds discounts as line items in the invoice creation. In the same discount field, I need to give the discount on a percentage basis or flat discount on a whole invoice.
Yes, you can add a discount to your invoice using a number of tools such as Waveapps, Freshbooks, Harvest, Hiveage, and Zoho. Some services by default have this feature and some have this as an additional feature which can be enabled in settings or preferences.
For example, In Zoho, the discount feature can be enabled in Settings. You have to go Settings > More Settings > Preferences > Select the General preferences sub tab > Do you give discounts > You can either select “At individual item level” or “At invoice level”. At invoice level, you can apply the discount before or after tax from the drop down. Also, to enable a field to display discounts on your invoices you can go to Settings > Templates > Invoice Templates > Edit > Go to “Item Table” tab > Check the box for Discounts > Save. In Zoho, you can also add Coupons to provide a flat discount.
