Issuing Commercial Invoices

Updated at:Sep 16, 2020 GMT+08:00

HUAWEI CLOUD automatically issues commercial invoices for your expenditures.

Precautions

You do not need to request commercial invoices. HUAWEI CLOUD automatically issues them for you.

Invoices for postpaid customers can be issued based on generated bills (the bill date is the third day of the next month).

If there is an outstanding amount caused by over-invoicing, it will be cleared after you pay.

Invoice request is not supported for customers of an enterprise. The enterprise will request invoices for them.

Commercial invoices are not supported for customers associated with a partner by resell mode. They need to contact the partner to request invoices.

Invoicing occurs due to the following three transaction types:

  • Invoicing for subscription: An invoice is issued when a customer pays an order online.
  • Invoicing for monthly settlement: An invoice is issued when a customer's monthly bill is settled.
  • Common invoicing: An invoice is issued when a customer tops up or withdraws money. Note that credit invoices are issued for money withdrawals.

Procedure

  1. Go to the Invoices page.
  2. Click Templates.
  3. Add an invoice template.

    1. Click Create invoice template.
    2. Fill in the information of the commercial invoice such as the address.

  4. After an expenditure is successfully made, the system automatically generates a commercial invoice.
