- n. Incom., a written account of the particulars of merchandise shipped or sent to a purchaser, consignee, factor, etc., with the value or prices and charges annexed. The word does not carry a necessary implication of ownership. In United States revenue law, an invoice sent from abroad is required to be made in triplicate and signed and dated by the seller of the merchandise described therein, and subsequently verified by the American consul or commercial agent of the United States in the port or country of shipment. The three invoices are classified as the original, or importer's, the duplicate, which is retained by the consul who verified it, and the triplicate, which is forwarded to the collector of the port to which the merchandise is consigned.
- To write or enter in an invoice; make an invoice of.
