Create and send invoices

DocsCurrentLast updated: October 6th 2021, @ 7:10:14 pm

In addition to sending and receiving invoices, the Invoicing API supports requests such as refunds, reminders, QR codes, and templates.

How it works

  1. The merchant creates a draft invoice.
  2. The merchant sends a draft invoice and PayPal emails the customer an invoice link. Optionally, merchants can share the invoice link in an email they send to their customers.
  3. To view the invoice, the customer clicks the invoice link in the email.
  4. The customer securely pays with a credit card, debit card, PayPal, or PayPal Credit.


Invoicing is available in multiple countries.
