On the Payment options tab, you can choose how long your customers have to pay you, and enter the payment details that will make it easy for them to pay.

Choose your default payment terms

In the Default payment terms section of the Payment options tab, choose the default payment terms that you want to appear on your invoices. You can change these terms for individual invoices while you're entering the invoice, but future invoices will always use the default terms you set up here.

You can choose from three ways of calculating payment terms:

  • Due on - Choose each invoice's due date as you create the invoice.
  • Days from end of this month - Invoices will be due the specified number of days from the end of the month they're issued in.
  • Days from invoice date - Invoices will be due the specified number of days after the invoice's Date of issue.

Set up your How to pay details

In the How to pay details section of the Payment options tab, you choose which options you want to include in the How to Pay section of the invoices you give to your customers. You can add details for Direct deposit and By mail. For more information see To set your How to Pay Details below.

Setting your credit terms

You can change the number of days until an invoice becomes due by entering a new number of days in the Payment terms field when you create an invoice. MYOB Essentials will remember your selection for future invoices. You can also add more payment details in the Notes section of the invoice. For more information see To create an invoice.
