    Raise...

    "I will raise a credit note for you"

    What does "raise" mean here ?

    It probably means to arrange to have the funds necessary to guarantee your credit.

    Here is the whole sentence

    "We are happy to pay the customs cost. Please advise how much it would be and I will raise a credit note for you"

    But this is a purchase and sale.So its mean can be "to make out a bill" or "to invoice" ?

    The seller is willing to pay the costs of customs. They are telling the buyer they are happy to reimburse the cost by issuing a note of credit presumably against a further purchase.
