To accept or decline an 'Invite to Bill' as an invoice contact.


After creating a new billing period, an invoice administrator can send an 'Invite to Bill to the invoice contact on a commitment. The invite reminds the contact to submit their invoice by the Open billing period's due date. The subject line reads "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill." Invoice contacts can then accept or decline the invite. 

Missing your 'Invite to Bill'? Invoice contacts can create new invoices in Procore. See Create a Subcontractor Invoice.

Things to Consider



  1. Open your email Inbox. 
  2. Look for the email message with the subject line, " "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill." 
  3. Open the invite to bill. 
  4. Review the Invoice Details:
    • Billing Period. The date range for the Open billing period. 
    • Invited By. The name of the sender. Typically, this is the invoice administrator. 
    • Due Date. The date your invoice is due. Invoice contacts cannot create or submit an invoice in the Procore project after this date.  
  5. Respond to the Do you want to bill this period? prompt:
    • Click Yes to accept the invite to bill and change the invoice's status to Accepted. Next, continue with the steps in Submit a New Invoice as an Invoice Contact.
    • Click No if you don't want to submit an invoice for the Open billing period. The invoice's status changes to Declined.
