I sell software and information products online.
All this happens automatically. At any given time, I have no idea if a customer buys as an "individual" or as a "company."
My understanding is that:
- Individuals get receipts for their purchases.
- Companies get invoices for their purchases.
I know each purchaser receives a Paypal email after they buy.
So, is that "email" a "receipt" or an "invoice"? Or neither?
And what if a customer buys with a credit card via Paypal, without even having a Paypal account?
Sorry if this is a dumb question. Creating value and sharing it with people is 2nd nature to me - but I seriously struggle with the "business" part of the equation.
Thanks in advance!
