Is there a way to create an invoice for a customer?  An actual invoice that says invoice and doesn’t leave me choosing payment method as cash so I don’t have to process their card to create an invoice?

I have high priced items and customers will contact me for quotes.  I would like to be able to send them off an invoice that is setup how orders are, but for payment method have it say Invoice.  Problem with this is there is no payment method called invoice…

Is there a solution to this?

You can create your own payment type - or - relabel ‘purchase order’ to be ‘invoice’. You will need to modify the csv files in admin to do that and possibly modify a few template files where it still says ‘purchase order’.

find /var/www/html | xargs grep ‘Purchase Order’ -ls

google around for Magento COD, then rename all COD to Invoice

But won’t the invoice option then be available to customers who are checking out? 

I can always switch back and forth to enable the option, create the invoice, then disable.  But is there a way to make the invoice payment option only available within admin?
