When are invoices issued?

Checkout X issues two types of invoices:

Monthly invoices

Monthly invoices are issued on a monthly basis and include your billing plan fixed monthly fee + any accumulated transaction fees since your last invoice.

Monthly invoices are issued on the calendar day that you started your subscription each month. 

If you’ve stopped your membership in the past and you renew it, a monthly invoice may be issued including just the fixed monthly fee for the next month. Read more about canceling and renewing your membership here  👈👈

Interim invoices

Interim invoices may be issued between monthly invoices if the transaction fees you accumulate become higher than €100.

The purpose of these invoices is to make sure we can collect our transaction fees and avoid monthly invoices becoming too big to pay -  bigger credit card payments have a higher chance of being declined.

You can identify an interim invoice by the fact it only includes Transaction fees.

What does each part of the invoice mean?

What is a Credit Note?

If for some reason, a refund has been granted to your account, a “Refunds” section will appear inside the Billing section. There you’ll be able to find a “Credit Note” document.

A Credit Note is the opposite of an invoice - it’s a document that verifies we’ve sent you money as a refund and shows to which invoice the refund is related.

❓ FAQ ❓

🙋 Can I receive invoices via email?

No. We currently don’t have the technical possibility to send invoices via email. 

We understand that downloading the invoices from your Checkout X account each month is additional work and we’re planning to send invoices through email in the future.

🙋 Why do I have multiple invoices during the same month?

If you have multiple invoices during the same month, it probably means that interim invoices were issued. Please check what interim invoices are in the section above 👆

🙋 Can I receive a single invoice?

No. Currently, it’s not possible to disable interim invoices. 

We understand that paying multiple invoices ( especially when using manual billing ) is additional work for you and we’ll consider simplifying the process in the future.
