    Configuring Invoice Line Types

    Translatable
    The following roles can configure which additional charges are available to add to invoices:
    • Acquisitions Administrator
    • General System Administrator
    Out of the box, the special invoice lines Shipment, Insurance, Overhead, and Discount automatically appear for each new invoice, and you can enable additional lines of these types, as well as lines of type Other or Regular. See Additional Charges in Creating Invoices.
    You can enable additional line types that can be added to invoices on the new Invoice Line Types code table (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Configuration > Configuration Menu > Acquisitions > Invoices > Invoice Line Types). This link appears only after enabling the customer parameter invoice_split_additional_charges (see Configuring Other Settings). For more information about code tables, see Code TablesCode Tables.
    • You can enable up to five additional line types.
    • Each invoice can contain only up to five types of invoice lines.
