How can I provide customers their tax invoices and credit notes?
Customers can request invoices and credit notes from noon. After that, we'll notify you, and you'll have two (2) business days (excluding Fridays and public holidays) to provide the invoice/credit note so that we may send it to our customer. If you fail to provide an invoice to the customer, noon will charge you the item price if the buyer customer requests a refund. We strongly recommend that you immediately issue tax invoices and credit notes with every sale and return so that they are always ready to be shared with our customers instantly.
Where can I access the purchase summaries provided by noon?

In the Navigation Bar, click on Payment and fees and then click on Statements and Invoices.
Here you can either select Invoices or Credit Notes and click the ellipsis (...) to download the statement
The purchase summary will state details relevant to each customer order without the VAT breakdown.
