Everything you need to know about 
finding the right invoice template for
your business needs.

What is an invoice template?

An invoice template is a preset, customizable template that you can repeatedly use to invoice your customers. It is available in popular file formats like Word, Excel, and PDF. A free invoice template makes your professional life easier by getting you paid much faster, saving you time, and increasing your productivity.

Filling out your invoice

The type of information you include on your custom invoice gives your customers clear, actionable information on what to do to pay you faster. To ensure that you get paid efficiently, be sure to enter your project details and business and customer information accurately.

Features of an invoice template

Always appear professional by including:

  • Your business information
    (name, logo, email address, phone number)

  • Your customer’s information
    (name, email address)

  • The invoice number

  • Sent and due dates

  • Notes or payment terms

  • Itemized rows for your job description

  • Applicable tax and discount information

Which file format to use

Your printable invoice template is available in Word, Excel, and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) formats. Which format is best depends on the situation for which you’re using it.

Word invoice template

Use a Microsoft Word template when your primary concern is having options in your invoice design process. Word is known for letting you design invoices, as well as various kinds of documents and reports. Customize your blank invoice template by adding vibrant images and tweaking its colors and fonts.

Excel invoice template

An Excel invoice template is ideal if you have many itemized rows of provided services, for which you need to automatically calculate totals. Thanks to Excel’s formulas, this process becomes a breeze.

PDF invoice template

Boost your professional reputation and trustworthiness by sending PDF invoices to your customers. This Portable Document Format lets you send invoices the way they were originally created even after you convert them to PDF. PDFs are also highly secure. They can be password-protected, and each change to your invoice leaves an electronic footprint.

  • What are the benefits of e-invoicing?

    A manual invoice process, such as creating invoices with Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel, can be time-consuming and difficult to manage. E-invoicing lets your business automate invoice processing and save time by tracking key invoice data such as open invoices (also known as outstanding invoices). It also helps you manage late payments more efficiently with payment reminders you can send your customers before an invoice due date.

  • How can I create an invoice?

    Send your first invoice by signing up for a free Square Invoices account. Then set up recurring payments and auto-reminders. Finally, request deposits so you always get paid on time.

  • How does an electronic invoice differ from a paper-based invoice?

    An electronic invoice is created with online invoice software or another cloud-based solution. It provides small-business owners with professional digital invoices that can be paid online or in person. A paper-based invoice is written out manually — a process that requires extra time since tasks, such as invoice tracking and overdue invoices, aren’t automated.

  • Which methods of payment can my clients use?

    You can accept all types of payment methods — cards, cash, checks, and gift cards. Your customers can pay an online invoice in person or from their computers or mobile devices with a credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, ACH bank transfer, Cash App Pay, or Afterpay.

  • Does your software offer integration to QuickBooks Online or other accounting software?

    Yes, Square Invoices offers integrations to the most popular accounting software providers, including QuickBooks Online and Xero. With Square, you can seamlessly import payments processed with Square Invoices to your accounting software for accurate recordkeeping.

  • How can I automate my billing system?

    Square Invoices comes with easy-to-understand billing features that help you create recurring invoices. You can also save a card on file to set up auto-billing for any customer.

  • Does Square Invoices support recurring invoices?

    Yes, you can create recurring invoices by signing up for a free Square Invoices account. When your customers receive your invoices in their email, they can then pay it online. Card-on-file payments are charged automatically. Depending on your payment transfer preferences, you could have the funds in your bank account as soon as the next day or instantly for a small fee.
