Do you have customers you invoice regularly? Consider creating a recurring invoice instead of a recurring sales receipt. This gives your customers the flexibility to choose when and how much to pay.
Create a recurring invoice

- Under Customers, select Invoice.
- Fill out the form with information you want to appear in every instance of the invoice.

- On the Options section, mark Automatically send emails.
