What is the Bill of Sale?
A Bill of Sale is a document which acknowledges the transaction between the buyer and seller. The Bill of Sale terms must be accepted by the buyer prior to making payment.
The Bill of Sale document contains the following information:
- Buyer name
- Seller name
- Item title
- Item price
- Date and time of acceptance
When a buyer clicks on a Trusted.Sale payment link from a Seller, the buyer is promoted to enter the full name which will be added to the Bill of Sale document. Buyers can preview the Bill of Sale prior to accepting the terms.
Once payment has been accepted and the transaction has been completed, a link to the executed Bill of Sale is automatically sent via email to the buyer along with an electronic receipt for payment.
