A great invoicing solution for business

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.

Reasons for switching to PayPal Invoicing

FreshBooks had a nominal cost for essentially the same functionality, so it made more sense to make the full switch to PayPal.

Excellent tool for starting a new business!

Pros

From the ease of creating a new invoice, to the ease of keeping track of open, closed and past invoices, Paypal Invoicing gives you the tools that make payments for your business easier. The invoice can be as descriptive as you want for your business because they have all the options there if you need them but you can also leave it vague if you don't have all those details which is different than other platforms that force you to fill them in. This is a tool that takes the stress off of invoicing.

Cons

The fees can seem a bit hefty, but you know they are there when you go in so you make peace with them and realize the fees are the worst part, but all the best parts make it worth it.

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.

Reasons for choosing PayPal Invoicing

I left PayPal for Invoice Simple.

Great for getting started

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 choosing PayPal Invoicing

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

Fast and easy invoicing

Pros

This software is a quick and easy way to send out invoices to just about anybody. You can set up reoccurring payments and your invoices will automatically send out every week or every day even. You can make your own inventory list with prices and descriptions so all it takes is one-click and everything is added to your invoice. You really can't go wrong with software and I highly recommend.

Cons

I feel like the product pictures could be a little bigger just so clients can see exactly what they are purchasing but overall this really is a great software.
