Invoicing is one of Wavebid's strongest features. Wavebid allows users to set various taxes and fees at a Company and Auction level that are used to automatically create invoices for bidders as lots are clerked or when sale data is imported. These invoices can be customized prior to being issued to bidders via email or PDF. Invoices can be edited as needed and payments can be applied individually or in bulk. The system also enables users to easily track the payment status of invoices. Invoices are stored in the Wavebid system for the life of a user's account and are an invaluable asset to the accounting process.
