Consumers expect a receipt when making a purchase. If you do not have software that creates a receipt when you enter payment and customer data, you can hand-write one or create a template on your computer to print receipts. Alternatively, you might want to purchase a receipt booklet that offers two copies of each handwritten receipt.
Label the Receipt. At the top of the paper, write the word "Receipt" in large letters. Under that header, write your name, address and telephone number as the selling party. Under your contact information, write "Date" followed by the date the receipt was written. On the next line, put "Sold to," and enter the buyers name.
According to the federal government, a receipt is written documentation that a buyer paid a seller for goods or services. A receipt must include the name of the seller, the purchase date, the specific goods or services purchased, the unit price and the final amount the buyer paid. If different types of products or services were purchased together, they must be listed separately on the receipt.
What are the differences between a payment receipt and a sales receipt?
A payment receipt is a proof of payment. It is mostly for the buyer rather than for the business. It is typically not used in accounting for digital products. A payment receipt lets a buyer be sure that their payment was received by the business.
By contrast, a sales receipt (a.k.a simplified invoice) is a bill or (request for payment if that payment has not already happened). Sales receipts must contain a more detailed breakdown of the costs and taxes involved, as well as information about the business. They also must have a unique receipt number and a few other strict requirements. Unlike an invoice, it does not require customer information, making for less form field to fill out at checkout for your customers (as long as the transaction falls beneath the threshold required by your tax authority).
