By On Mar 23, 2019 Free Templates
You might start using a service like Paypal to receive payments online. Those services all offer integrated online invoicing tools, which can save you time and effort, and many include an online pay now option, which can reduce the amount of time you wait to get paid. If you are freelancing or in the early days of your small business or startup, you can probably get by with using free templates for a while, sending your invoices as email attachments, or even handing them to your customers in person. At some point, as your customers increase and managing your cash flow gets a little more complicated, you will probably start thinking about using an accounting tool like Quickbooks or Xero.
In addition to their pay-to-use invoice and time-tracking app, Paydirt offers a free invoice template. One of the things that makes this template unique is that you can connect it to your PayPal account, giving your clients an easier, more immediate way to pay you. If you are emailing invoices to your clients, it is never a bad idea to send them in PDF form, so they can not be edited. Sending Word docs or even Google docs with opening editing access can just make things more complicated if the client (even unintentionally) edits the invoice and then gets confused about what they owe and when.
Make sure there is no doubt that they understand what you are billing for and a due date for when you expect cash in hand. And do not wait too long to send it to your customer—you want your product or service to be fresh in their mind when their bill arrives. Keep your invoices simple and clean, and remember, they are essentially marketing material. They do not have to be professionally designed, but do not clutter them up with jargon that your customer wont understand about your service or product, or use hard to read fonts or colors when you customize your invoice.
