Everyone enjoys shopping for products and services. After choosing what you like and going to the billing counter one receives two items – a bill and a receipt.
Difference between bill and receipt
Whenever you purchase any item from a shop you are handed a bill for your purchase. A bill is given when an amount is owed and has to be paid.
After paying the bill you receive a receipt. If you buy from an online store or website after paying the amount online you receive a digital receipt from the store acknowledging that they have received the payment.
Why is a receipt needed?
A receipt acknowledges that you have received the payment from the customer. It acts like proof so that in the future if there are any issues the receipt can help solve them.
It reassures all customers that the payment gateway is safe and that the amount has been transferred.
If you are a freelancer then sending a receipt is crucial. Most freelancers overlook it and only send invoices. But receipts are as important as invoices. It reaffirms to your clients that their payments have been received.
Apart from that it also reflects the date and the mode of payment.
If receipts are not sent then clients and customers will keep asking you whether you have received the payment or not.
Getting back to each one of them is a task! So why add this unnecessary burden when a receipt can solve all your problems.
