Why Configure Invoice Comments in Magento 2

Communicate Important Information

Adding invoice comments in Magneto 2 can be a great way to communicate important information to the customer. For example, order cancellation is a part and parcel of running any business. In the invoice comments, store admins can share information related to product returns and order cancellation.

Enhanced Communication

Store owners can use this feature for enhance communication with the customer. For example, they can use this feature to send a personalised thank you note. Apart from that, they can share instructions related to product usage.

Caring Attitude
