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.

I highly recommend PayPal to make your transactions, it is a simple and practical method. It can be used by anyone from anywhere in the world.

Pros

Excellent functions to know your account statement, billing and payments to third parties, as well as charges to the account. For those of us who have to make purchases abroad, it is the safest payment method on the market as well as the most accepted. They have excellent customer service and I honestly feel safer using and billing PayPal than my bank payment methods.

Cons

Honestly, I haven't had any problems so far with PayPal. Neither personally nor with my business.

Easy to use tool to send invoice and receive payments

Reviewed on 11/05/2022

Helps me receive online payments along with automatic bank transfer of the same.

Helps me receive online payments along with automatic bank transfer of the same.

Pros

It enables me to create a custom PayPal.me link via which I can easily collect payments by entering my desired amount to the link.
It is the best option I have found to make payment when you do not want to share your account or credit card details.
It allows me to select automatic transfers for the amount I receive directions to my bank account.
It is easy to receive payments once you set up your PayPal business account and has PayPal payment integration available with hundreds of apps.

Cons

I don’t like that the payment on PayPal.me link can only be made if you have a Paypal account, I really hope they add an option of direct credit card payment to Paypal.me link payment too. If someone chooses the credit card option to pay via their Paypal payment method, both the sender and receiver of Paypal payment get charged for the same payment.

They have some automated process of checking on Paypal account activity and the automated process is not full proof. They flagged and limited my Paypal account just because they could not understand the purpose code I had set in my account. I had provided them all the required documents, but for a period of 3 months they removed and they put limitations again on my account 3 times for the same, even when I had already provided them with all required documents, the first time they asked. Their team apologized that the limitation should have been avoided in the first place but it lead me to a lot of time wasted in resolving the same issue again and again because their account automation checks are faulty.

A Crucial Payment Manager For All Independent Contractors and Small Businesses

We, The Last King have been using PayPal's invoicing features for about 7 years now since we started our band back in 2014. Upon achieving a consistent following that wanted to purchase our music in merchandise back in 2014 we needed a dedicated payment processing manager to not only use for all business expenses and merch purchasing costs, but to also accept a wide range of payment types to keep our merch moving at a consistent pace so that we can continue to be a band and generate the funding necessary to keep making music for a strong duration. We haven't looked back since as PayPal is the primary catalyst we use daily in managing all band sales, payment types, ordering requests, and inventory forecasts.

Pros

PayPal truly is a crucial component in our band's daily success as we love the mobile accessibility PayPal provides us with on the go alongside the peace of mind we receive from not only situating invoices within the PayPal app but also completing payments and accepting various external payment types to speed up our overall functionality and boost sales for the long-term.

Cons

Aside from PayPal's fees which are standard and to be expected with each transaction where there is no monthly recurring fee or cost to utilize Paypal, there are no negatives to using the program. Between the tax benefits, user-friendly accessibility, mobile benefits, and ease of use collecting/sending invoices there is no payment manager as beneficial or organized as PayPal!

Alternatives Considered

Cash App and Venmo

Reasons for Switching to PayPal Invoicing

The competitive advantage and additional options PayPal allows over Venmo and Cashapp is truly night and day. Those two other payment processing platforms really are only beneficial for individual users who make only a select handful of purchases each month. Where we are forced to purchase inventory in bulk and complete transactions almost daily, PayPal was the obvious choice and made everything a breeze throughout our tax filings over the years. Without PayPal our band would not have half of the success it has been fortunate enough to achieve today.

The experience I have with Paypal is wonderful because it has allowed me to save time when making purchases, sending money and receiving

Pros

I like the Paypal software because it allows me to do it easily, quickly, from anywhere and only with email, without the need to always fill in various data, receive, buy and send money

Cons

Actually, from my point of view, there is nothing I don't like about the software because it is very fast, practical and helps to carry out different activities in real time since the action we carry out is instantly reflected
