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.
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.
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.
