How to ensure purchase order numbers are added to Malt invoices

When kicking off a project with a freelancer on Malt, be sure to reach out to your finance, accounting, or procurement department to issue a purchase order.

Then, pass this along to the freelancer so they can add it to the optional field in their quote specifically for purchase order numbers. This will ensure that it appears on all Malt invoices related to that project.

On occasion, we've also seen clients ask freelancers to add the purchase order number to the quote's project title. This is an added safeguard to avoid any confusion whatsoever once invoices reach your accounting department.

Pro-Tip: Check with your accounting department to see what works best for them and then be sure to communicate those instructions to your freelancers.
