There is usually no set form for a receipt, such as a requirement that it be machine generated. Many point-of-sale terminals or cash registers can automatically produce receipts. Receipts may also be generated by accounting systems, be manually produced or generated electronically, for example if there is not a face-to-face transaction. To reduce the cost of postage and processing, many businesses do not mail receipts to customers, unless specifically requested or required by law, with some transmitting them electronically. Others, to reduce time and paper, may endorse an invoice, account or statement as "paid".
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).
Describe the Purchase. For each item you sold, write a description, a price, any discount applied and the total amount paid. Sum the amount paid for all items, enter any state sales tax you are required to collect and put a grand total on the receipt. Write "Method of Payment," and indicate whether you received cash, a check or payment from a credit card. A comment at the bottom of the receipt -- such as "Thank You for Your Business!" -- adds a nice touch.
In some countries, it is obligatory for a business to provide a receipt to a customer confirming the details of a transaction. In most cases, the recipient of money provides the receipt, but in some cases the receipt is generated by the payer, as in the case of goods being returned for a refund. A receipt is not the same as an invoice.
