How to use WordPress to invoice your business?
Quite simple. If you already have a WordPress site or blog you may install the Flexible Invoices FREE plugin. And you’re “ready to go”!
If you start your business, blog, or provide services – you may want to choose WordPress.
WordPress is the most popular (41% of websites use it) CMS platform. You can use it for your company, blog, or any projects. WordPress is simple to install and start. And it has got a lot of plugins, themes, designers, tutorials and a great community… You get the picture.
Use a free WordPress plugin for invoicing
You may choose many plugins from the WordPress repository (or themes) to improve your site. Our WordPress invoice plugin will help you make a PDF invoice directly in your WordPress.
Create a WordPress invoice
See the process to set the plugin and to issue a PDF invoice with the plugin below. As you can see, first, you insert all the necessary data, products, and taxes. Then you may download the desired invoice or more invoices in bulk. Finally, you send them to your customers or print invoices on your printer. Everything will be under your control. And you find all invoices in WordPress close to your blog posts & pages.
So, run your WordPress blog or company site with your invoices in one place. No need for any external invoice system or billing elsewhere. If you need to issue few invoices a month, the free version of the plugin will be enough.
Grow with WooCommerce & free Woo Commerce invoice system
So, as you’ve seen, you may create an invoice in WordPress after taking an order through a form, phone, or email. When your services and products become more popular, reach for WooCommerce. It’s also a free plugin that will let you transform your site into a store. You will be able to show your offer & services, automate the process of getting new orders. And now, sell your products and services through your e-store. That is what WooCommerce will let you do.
What’s more, you will gain more time and energy to grow your business. Flexible Invoices will let you invoice in WordPress and WooCommerce as well.
If you would like to know more about WooCommerce, read the guide on products in WooCommerce.
The free Flexible Invoices plugin, you have installed, will now invoice for your WooCommerce orders too.
It will work with a manual order and with a WooCommerce invoice payment through checkout as well. For example, for WooCommerce phone orders if you’ll need them from time to time.
Have a reliable and flexible invoicing plugin for WordPress and WooCommerce
So, as you see your site & business grow and so is the range of possibilities in the Flexible Invoices plugin. You have a flexible WP and WooCommerce invoice system. The plugin has got over 5 out of 5 stars rating & received trust from over 2800 users.
Invoice in WordPress and WooCommerce at the same time
Let’s suppose you sell your products & services online in your fresh WooCommerce store. The Flexible Invoices plugin helps you issue invoices for WooCommerce orders. The invoice gets data from WooCommerce orders. Your customer billing address, phone number, payment status, and method. All go onto invoices.
Though, you still have some “old” clients. They prefer to call you and do not want to place a WooCommerce purchase order. So, you still issue invoices manually for them. Of course, all invoices will be ready to edit, download, email, and print anytime you need them (both from WooCommerce orders and WP-based ones). Read more about WooCommerce phone orders & how to invoice them.
Tailor a custom invoice template PDF for your needs
If you need to edit the pdf invoice template you may do so in the free version of the plugin as well. You may adjust the invoice to your needs, for example:
- change the invoice fonts
- change the invoice language (the plugin is also compatible with WPML)
- add a payment link to the invoice
- add meta fields from WooCommerce orders or any annotation you need
- add extra information to the invoice notes for a WP invoice (outside WooCommerce)
Your business grows & so does the Flexible Invoices plugin!
As far, you were issuing invoices manually, outside, and for WooCommerce orders. But you get more orders and there are more urgent calls to make and tasks to do. New business opportunities, expanding to a new town (or social media). And also, advertising your products or hiring someone on board. If you need more, dive into PRO features below & compare free with PRO. You will see if you need a more robust version of the plugin.
Get automatic invoices for WooCommerce orders to save time
Read more about automatic invoicing in WooCommerce. See also the short movie below to see how it works.
How much time can you save? With 3 invoices (to issue, download, print, and send an invoice) it may take few minutes. But with 10 or 20 per day, you may need to speed up and automate the process. The invoice will be auto-generated for a chosen order status, then send by email to a customer. That’s it. No need to do it manually. Use this time for other tasks or enjoying a cup of coffee or fresh juice. The plugin will do the job for you.
Would you like to invoice for your good “old” friend in WordPress, outside WooCommerce orders? This is still available for you in the PRO.
3 kinds of invoices – proforma, invoice, and correction
The PRO comes with 3 types of documents – to help you process any business scenario. Proforma invoices before payments and corrections for WooCommerce refunds. They too have their pdf invoice templates. So, now, you can process any type of WooCommerce purchase order and situation in your store.
EU VAT validation, OSS (formerly MOSS) support, and reverse charge in one plugin
The Flexible Invoices PRO plugin is compatible with EU law. It has all you need to invoice, send and print invoices for your EU customers. So if you need to issue an invoice for a client from Europe or it’s a matter of days or a week – you may like our plugin. Because all functions are built-in. So you do not have to look for any other plugin to meet EU requirements. For example, EU VAT number validation for OSS/ reverse charge.
Flexible Invoices can:
- check EU VAT number for OSS (MOSS)/ reverse charge invoices
- make sure that proper VAT is added (or not) based on this validation in the EU VIES database
- issue currency invoices with an exchange table on the document
- get conversion rates from the European Central Bank
- add reverse charge annotation to the document notes for B2B deals
See the example of PDF invoices for OSS (MOSS), reverse charge, and settings
