Choosing between detailed or summary invoices
Your invoices are monthly statements of the billing activity on your seller’s account. Your invoice automatically lists all payments, refunds, discounts, credits, and fees that affected your account during the billing period, as well as your amount due.
If you sell a large number of items or find that your invoice is too long or detailed, however, you might consider changing your invoice format. By switching to the Summary HTML format, you’ll get a shorter, summarized version of your invoice.
Deciding which invoice format is right for you
Your invoice format determines how much detail you’ll get when you view your invoice onscreen. Use the following table to help you decide between the detailed and summary format.
Setting your preference for invoice format

To select your invoice format:
Can I get both summary and detailed invoices?
You can choose only one display format for your invoice, either the Summary HTML format or the Detailed HTML format. However, you can download invoice details any time, or you can schedule a monthly download. Learn more about downloading invoice details.
