How to print the Saudi electronic invoice

The electronic invoice system has been implemented in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the aim of simplifying and improving the process of issuing and managing invoices for companies and individuals, which reduces the costs and efforts associated with printing and distributing traditional invoices. Below, we will take a look at how to print the Saudi electronic invoice and the most important main points in this process:

Login to the sales list.

Invoicing management

Once you get to the sales department, you need to look for an “invoice management” option or something like that, as it’s this option that moves you to a list that contains stored invoices or current invoices that you can choose one of for printing.

Choose the invoice to print.

After going to the invoice management interface, you can search for the specific invoice you wish to print. Remember that these invoices can be linked to specific dates or unique invoice numbers, and once you find the appropriate invoice, you must choose it to continue.

Printing of the electronic invoice 

After determining the invoice you wish to print, the “print” button normally found at the top of the invoice window should be searched, as this button can be part of the list of procedures above the screen or is independently present as a separate button.

Printing settings

Once you click on the “print” button, you will be shown a screen of settings responsible for printing the electronic invoice, and remember that you must make sure that your operating platform is attached to an appropriate printer for the electronic invoicing.

This screen can provide you with options, such as: selecting a specific printer; choosing to coordinate printing; determining the number of copies required; and modifying other printing settings.

Choose a print format. 

Remember that in the process of printing an electronic invoice, you can choose the printing format that best suits your needs, as this can include: choosing paper size, text formatting, invoice design, etc. And so on and so forth.

A variety of templates are usually available to choose from, and the template can also be customized to your requirements.


It is important that you professionalize the electronic invoicing process, ensure that your operating platform is connected to the correct printer, and that all necessary settings are properly constructed. Also, make sure that appropriate paper is available for printing.
