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

Send, track and manage your invoices with PayPal

Invoicing is essential to any business getting paid, but can take up too much time to send, track & manage the paperwork. Online Invoicing is a tool to simplify this process. All you need is your PayPal account. 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 at no additional cost with your PayPal account. You can customize the invoice template with your company logo and send any quantity of invoices.

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.
