A sale receipt includes some essential information about the purchased goods or services, the sum, and the method of payment. You issue a sales receipt to a customer when the customer makes a payment in full for the goods or services. Sometimes, a sales receipt is referred to as a proof of purchase.

Sales receipt vs. invoice

A sales receipt works like a regular invoice with a PAID stamp on it. Typically, first you invoice the customer and receive the payment, and then issue a sales receipt or the invoice with PAID stamp on it to the customer. If the customer pays you at the point of sale in full, you just need to issue a sales receipt.

Sale receipts are important for a customer in case a refund is needed or for accounting purposes.

There are several ways to create sales receipts e.g., handwritten, printed from cash registers or printed automatically from ERP systems.
