Create and share a secure PDF invoice with these steps.

Digital invoices are becoming a business basic — you can create, send, sign, and save them on your computer, sparing you paperwork, storage space, and the headache of recordkeeping. Digital invoices also allow for flexibility and customization. Learn how to create PDF invoices and collect payment with fewer complications.

Create a PDF and share your invoice.

Align your digital invoice with your tax filing and accounting needs. Also keep in mind how clients prefer to pay. Include payment options for debit or credit card, bank transfer, or third-party payment apps.

Invoices sometimes require an approval signature, so make sure your invoice is e-signature equipped. E-signatures are legal and binding across the U.S., and in many other countries as well.
