In the original article that I wrote about invoices, I stated that I just stick with a Word document. If I have time, I will change it to PDF, but that does not always happen. Another common practice that I have seen is using an Excel spreadsheet to generate the invoice. But one important consideration that I did not mention back then is the plethora of accounting software out there. Due to affordable small business-targeted options such as Freshbooks or Quickbooks, you may never have to generate an invoice yourself anyway. An invoice serves several purposes. It is not just the catalyst that gets you paid, although Id venture to say thats the 1 role, huh? But that invoice is often needed by the buyer for other reasons. They need that record. They need to prove that they paid you, often so they can write off your payment. In my years of writing, I have only had one client, a magazine, that did not need an invoice. Iam not sure why or how they managed that.
Start by downloading a sample freelancer invoice template in Word, or by generating one using our free Invoice template tool. Then customize your freelancers invoice following the instructions below. Please note the downloadable Microsoft Word invoice template does not include the built-in online invoicing features of PayPal Invoicing and the invoice design may not be formatted correctly if you export it to Excel. Get paid, With PayPal Invoicing, your clients will have payment options beyond what is normally offered by other invoicing apps. They will automatically be able to pay you online using their credit or debit card, PayPal account, or PayPal Credit. Tip, PayPal Invoicing can get businesses paid fast. In a recent study, 79 percent of businesses using PayPal Invoicing reported that they received payment within a week. 2 That is much faster than traditional offline invoicing. Watch our 2-minute video and see how easy it is for you to customize and send invoices, and how easy it is for customers to pay.
Send, If you are emailing your bill, make sure to use a clear, descriptive, and accurate subject line. If you are using PayPal Invoicing, you can simply click Send to have PayPal send your invoice or you can select share link myself to share the invoice link in your own email, text, or chat message. Invoice date, This should be the day you send the bill, not the day you created it. Make sure your invoice date, payment terms, and due date line up, if your payment terms are 30 days, then the due date should be exactly 30 days from your invoice date. And, use this date format to solve for international differences: Month (spelled out), date, year.
