View unbilled charges
Viewing unbilled charges lets you check the value of:

  • usage charges in the current rating period
  • recurring charges and deferred charges for future rating periods

When you view unbilled charges, Smile generates a future invoice for a specified rating period. A future invoice assumes that all previous future invoice periods have been invoiced. Only the recurring and deferred charges for a specific invoice period are included in the future invoice for that period. Smile does not add future invoices to the account balance.

Click Future Billing on the summary page of an active subscription. The Future invoices window lists the value of each future invoice. Click View next to an invoice to view the charges on that invoice.

Create a statement in Smile
Creating a statement generates a record of the transactions on an account in a specified date range. After you create a statement, you can print it or email it to a customer.

On the Account menu, click Print Statement… while viewing the account for which you want to create a statement.

The Statement window will list any previous statements for the account. You can click Print next to a previous statement to print a statement without regenerating it.

To create a new statement, enter the date range you require. You can then either Print Statement or Email Statement.
