In an attempt to format my payment information a bit better I’ve fiddled a bit with basic HTML. It’s nothing fancy, just a basic table with cell padding, and a coloured first column, to break down three payment methods.
As there’s no preview option on the Invoice Customisation page I did it in an actual invoice, then used the Preview option there to check whether it all came out as intended.
Once it looked how I wanted it I sent the invoice to a client, and added the HTML code to the invoice template.
Today I needed to amend some of the payment information due to the new “Confirmation of Payee” scheme adopted by some banks (sole traders beware!!), and found that my code had been truncated, thus cutting off part of my payment information.
When I checked the invoice I had sent the other day with that code, the full code was still there. Copied and pasted into the template again, saved it, went back in, and it had been truncated again.
It appears there is a limit to the Payment Terms field on the Invoice Customisation page, but not on the actual invoices themselves. This is a problem as I need all three payment options listed.
