Invoice Creator Frequently Asked Questions

What goes on an invoice?

Sending detailed, professional invoices for your business is the surest way to get paid the right way by your clients.

In order for your clients to know how and when to pay you, you will need to be sure to include all of the required information.

With the free invoice creator, you can be sure that you aren’t missing any of the essential elements.

Every invoice will include:

  • Contact Information: Be sure to add your name, business name, address, phone number, email address and business branding (such as your logo) to the invoice. Add your client’s information to the invoice as well
  • Invoice Date & Invoice Number: Every invoice will have a unique invoice number that allows you to keep your invoices organized. It will also state the date that the invoice was sent
  • Services & Rates: To avoid confusion and delay, you will want to outline which services were provided, plus the description and rate for each. This ensures that your client knows exactly what they are paying for
  • Sales Tax: Be sure to apply all of applicable charges before you calculate the total amount due. After all, you will have to pay these fees come tax time
  • Total Due: Calculate how much your client owes you and note this at the bottom of the invoice
  • Terms & Conditions: Note your accepted payment methods, your refund policy, your privacy policy and more to prevent issues down the road

What are the drawbacks of using the invoice creator tool?

While the invoice creator is free and easy to use, it may not be as robust as some of the invoicing tools out there.

As a freelancer or small business owner, you are likely managing multiple clients at once and the responsibilities can pile up. You may be looking for a “set it and forget it” method that runs on autopilot.

For example, you may have clients that pay on a monthly basis, or prefer to pay online. Invoice creator templates are limited in that you have to manually send out the invoices each month, and you can’t accept online payments.

Some of the drawbacks of using the free invoice creator include:

  • It’s manual: You will have to manually fill in the details for each invoice and send the email yourself each time
  • No easy follow up process: You will have to set reminders for yourself to follow up with clients, which can get hectic as your business grows
  • Longer wait time to get paid: Without online payments, it will take longer to get paid via check, credit card and the like. Other invoicing tools are able to cut this time in half
  • Managing paperwork come tax time: When it is time to do your taxes, you will have to sort all of the paperwork by hand. This can can get confusing without an online filing system
  • Limited customization: While the invoice creator does include some custom fields, you can’t add as many brand elements or fields as you want. This can make things difficult if your business bills for some unique services, bills hourly, etc...

Is the invoice creator free every time I use it?

Yes. Every time you use the invoice creator tool it is absolutely free. All of the invoices you create are free to download, print or send to your clients.
