About PayPal Invoicing

PayPal Invoicing is a free solution for creating and sending online invoices within a PayPal Business account. The tool allows users to create custom-branded invoice templates, populate billing details, track payments, view billing histories, schedule invoices, create recurring invoices for automated billing, accept partial payments, and more.

With PayPal Invoicing, users can setup custom invoice templates branded with their business logo, contact information, and any custom fields they require. Once created, invoices can be shared with customers via email or through a unique link. Users are automatically notified by PayPal when payments are received, and can send out payment reminders for unpaid balances. Billing can be automated through invoice scheduling and the creation of recurring invoices.

PayPal Invoicing allows users to save taxes, items, and customer contact information to streamline invoice creation. Payments received by check can be recorded, and users are automatically notified if any invoice is undeliverable. Additionally, customers can make partial payments and even add tips to their payments. The PayPal Invoicing APIs also allow users to create custom billing apps for their business.

A great invoicing solution for business

Reviewed on 12/02/2020

Overall, PayPal invoicing is a great tool that is included with your PayPal business account, meaning there is no annual fee or monthly fee associated with it. It allows you to track on-app and off-app payments as well which is nice.

Pros

PayPal's invoicing offering is exceptionally easy to use and learn. I transitioned from another product to PayPal invoicing and was impressed with the robust features, customizable options and overall performance of the application.

Cons

There are some limitations around payment options and allowing multiple payments on a single invoice. You can make a deposit, but no features or functionality around milestone payments for example, which would be really nice.

Just saw the option one day by pure chance, tested it and it worked great. I immediately got out of Quickbooks after.

Pros

Before PayPal I was paying for Quickbooks. Then I found PayPal Invoicing which has all the features I need, it's easier to use and it's free.

Cons

There's nothing I don't like. My use case is pretty simple: create invoice, send invoice, mark invoice as paid. Maybe a more demanding user would have something to complain about.

PayPay Invoice Is Incredible

My overall experience with PayPal invoice is great I use it a lot day to day sending my customers the even tip me 50% of the time because I always enable that feature along with partial payment to customers I do business with over a period of time

Pros

Where to start with how much I love PayPal invoice, as a business owner who always sending out invoices to customers I should say PayPal invoice is so so incredibly that it’s revolutionary it as every thing plus it’s free doesn’t matter how many invoices you create in a day it’s free, another feature I love is how you customers can tip the seller that’s awesome and another feature which is incredible is the partial payment options which the sell can control on his terms that’s magic If the seller I trust the buyer the seller can allow partial payment to the buyer PayPal invoice is genius

Cons

What I least like about the feature is nothings it’s really great PayPal really put in a lot of work in this feature for sellers which to me is great and any one review something bad about PayPal invoice is lying through their teeth….

Simple Invoicing With a Lot of Busy Work

I used PayPal invoicing when I got started with my online business, but I quickly realized I needed to scale up to something different. After a year of dreading my invoicing solution, I moved on and set up something that works better for me.

Pros

PayPal's invoicing feature is free, so that puts it ahead of most of the competition on the market. But it also offers a pretty simple system that doesn't mesh well with complex operations with lots of products on offer. Retyping invoice items quickly becomes tiresome.

Cons

There are no customization options, no backend to add frequently added items to your invoices. For example, selling candles online in 4oz, 8oz, 12 oz, get ready to add each item by hand instead of being able to select those values and customize as needed for that invoice.

Great for getting started

Reviewed on 30/09/2021

Pros

This was very easy to set up. It was the first invoice software I ever used.

Cons

Over the years, I started to enjoy other payment processing platforms more than PayPal.

Reasons for Switching to PayPal Invoicing

Because it was free. Although I ultimately switched to Square for my invoicing needs.
