Your invoice is a summary of all charges (across the program, products, and customers) for the current monthly period. It is available on the Partner Center Dashboard.

For itemized details about the charges, use the accompanying reconciliation files. The reconciliation files include the customer IDs and subscription IDs that you will use to create customer invoices. For more information, see How to use the reconciliation files.
