  1. Log in to your Wave account at waveapps.com.
  2. On the left-side menu, click Sales & Payments > Estimates.
  3. Click the Send button to the right of the estimate you want to send. Or, click on the estimate to open it, then click Send estimate.
  4. To send the estimate through Wave, fill in the required fields:
    1. To send the estimate from an alternate verified email address saved under your business profile, click on your email address in the From field and choose from the list. To add another email address to your business profile, follow these steps.
    2. You can edit the subject line, or the message that will appear on the body of the email your customer receives.

      You cannot save a customized message to appear by default when sending estimates. If you want to customize the message, edit it before you send the estimate.

    3. Click Add recipient to send the estimate to multiple contacts. If you already have multiple emails associated with your customer’s profile, select one of the emails from the drop-down menu. If not, enter a new email address into the additional field.

      Check out Add a customer to learn how to add a secondary email address to your customer’s profile.

    4. Select the checkboxes at the bottom to send a copy of the estimate to yourself, or attach the estimate as a PDF. You can also preview how the email would appear to your customer on the right side of the pop-up box.
    5. To send the estimate, click Send.

This sends your estimate through Wave, but any replies to the email will be sent to the email address the estimate was sent from.

You can also export an estimate as a PDF or generate a link to it. Learn how in Generate a PDF or a link to an estimate.
