I was in the process of updating my camera system (4 years old now!) and I am looking at Eufy. This company enables you to store locally and also cloud storage. Pretty much like Arlo except, cheaper and you can easily access your monthly invoices for business expense.

 

Just thought I would share. Getting really annoyed with the lack of progress on this.

How do you get an invoice? They used to be email monthly, now this seems to have stopped. 

 

There's no option in My Account or anywhere else I can find.

I have the same problem.

Was advised to call helpdesk in Sweden. Tried for four days were disconnected every time. I doubt there is an intention to help.

I don't think Arlo reads all our posts here...

 

I suggest that we all write Jessica from Support in a direct message

 

Send this user a private message 

 

Then hopefully Arlo will see the problem.

Seriously, what has gone wrong with Arlo? The issue with getting invoices is obviously important to much of the user base. Can we get a straight answer as to why the automatic invoice via email went away AND a resolution as to what Arlo is going to do about it? A massive amount of users contacting customer support for a manually emailed invoice must be a time and money sink for Arlo.  Just update the website and let the users get their own invoices. Please!

I talked to a guy after a couple of calls here in Sweden. Very helpful by taking the ticket. He should sent it to the invoice department because he didn t have access to the invoice system. He told me that the invoices should be sent; if not that day I called him or maybe the next day. That was on 17th november and no invoices have been sent to me yet.

Excellent!

And what about the upcoming invoices ?
Do you get them automatically now?
Or do you have to write Support every month to request the newest invoice ?

I was told they’ll be sent automatically now...I’ll let you know next month

So - without requesting it or having to contact support, I have received my monthly invoice from Arlo. I hope that this will continue for 2021. Of note, do check your junk/spam folder as that is where I found mine.

 

Would be great to see if anyone else got their "unsolicited" invoice.

I will add to the discussion. It is a standard business practice to provide an invoice for purchases. Had I have known I would have to jump through so many hoops to get a simple receipt, I would have gone with a different company. Please fix this or I will find something better with a competitor.

Not sure if it matters but I stopped purchasing more Arlo devices and have switched to Ring.  I like the features of Arlo but this issue (not getting invoices) indicates a major problem with their accounting and as a business customer, I can't risk continuing with Arlo.

 

Maybe if this gets resolved I'll reconsider. That's why I'm posting so I can monitor this. 

 

like everyone else on this thread, my company asks for the invoice  from the service to validate.  I've tried the route of asking for my invoice but its too slow and unreliable. If I get a invoice, it's not when I need it.

I just contacted the support team and the next day I had 12 months of invoices emailed to me then I’ve had monthly invoices since.

I have just checked my Arlo invoices again this month. I am starting to receive my invoices every month, well for the last two months without any solicitation to the Support Team. Could it be that they are resolving this solution. Maybe Arlo might be able to inform the community that a change has been made, resolving this issue!
