What is Online Invoicing and how can I get paid using this solution?

Send, track and manage your invoices with PayPal

Invoicing is a key step in receiving payments, but can be tedious and time-consuming. Online Invoicing is a tool to simplify this process, whether or not you have a website. All you need is your PayPal account in India. If you’ve already activated your PayPal Business Account and are wondering how you can organise and manage your invoices, we’re here to give you a quick rundown.

What is Online Invoicing

PayPal’s Online Invoicing is a feature that comes included in your PayPal Business Account. You don’t have to pay to create or send an invoice and you can even personalise it with your own company logo.

It’ll only take minutes to create and send one and you can choose to send the invoice via email, share a link to the invoice or even schedule an invoice to be sent on a later date. The best part is, you’ll get to see all your invoices at a glance when logged into your PayPal account, which makes managing and tracking your payments a whole lot easier.
