Good news!! WP Travel Pro users will now have an option to send the PDF invoice to customers in real time right after a purchase is completed. WP Travel version 3.1.6 has just released this new feature that allows you to create invoice to your customers. A PDF invoice is automatically added to the order confirmation emails sent out to your customers.
You have to go to WP Travel settings to see this new invoice feature. There are the options available to either enable or disable the feature. The invoice provides trip details regarding trip booking and payment made.
How WP Travel invoice works
During booking, you select pax from the individual trip page with the date of arrival and departure and you fix the number of person and date. Once you select the ‘Book Now’ button, it will take you to the cart page. After you proceed to the checkout page, there you fill the forms with detail information. Information regarding the customer, travellers and further payment card details are required in the checkout page. Once you select the ‘book and pay’ button it does send PDF invoice to customers with the trip details and booking confirmations.
But to confirm and get proof of the payment made via payment gateways, the travellers must receive the invoice including few details. Details like the payment they made, VAT included, or the payment is made in the partial amount and remaining balance and other charges from the trip extras and so on.
Once a booking is made with a certain amount, detail information regarding the payment is found in the new feature. There are situations that might arise like partial payment, people in a group with discount packages, VAT must be included, full payment. The invoice needs to be as per the situation. The email contains the invoice including the details of the payment send the PDF invoice to customers, either it is partial or full payment. The payment details need to be made clear for the receiver in the invoice. The partial payment feature gives service to pay in installments.
