What is the difference between billing and invoicing?
Essentially, an invoice and a bill communicate the same information and both work to help you get paid. Both can be created with online invoicing software, and both have line items about the sale of products or services, a due date, payment terms, sales tax, and other taxes, among other things. The main difference between invoicing and billing is that an invoice is generally used by a business to get paid by clients, whereas a bill is used by a customer to refer to payments (online or physical) they owe suppliers for their products or services. An invoice and a bill are essentially the same things, but the two terms are simply used by the different parties involved in the same transaction.

What’s the difference between payment schedules & partial payments?
Payment Schedules in FreshBooks allow you to create a payment plan for your clients, so they can pay Invoices in multiple and partial instalments according to your payment terms. This easy to use tool saves you from having to create multiple Invoices or continually editing an existing Invoice whenever a new payment is due.
Partial Payments in FreshBooks allow you to accept payments that are less than the full invoiced amount so clients can pay a custom amount up to the total invoice amount. You can allow for partial payments in your invoice software settings. This gives your client flexibility in picking the payment amount.
How do I create recurring invoices?
While there are lots of free invoice templates and invoice generator options out there, using them can be an arduous experience, packed with ads and other barriers. But with FreshBooks, you can set up Recurring Invoices that are automatically generated based on the due date and schedule you choose. Recurring invoicing is the perfect way to invoice subscription-based clients that need ongoing work. Essentially, recurring invoicing is a hands-off invoicing software solution that helps you cut down on the time you spend on your business finances.

How do I save or share invoices?
You can save your professional invoices by downloading them as PDFs and then emailing them to clients, but the easiest way to send invoices is right on the FreshBooks platform. The FreshBooks invoicing and billing software lets you send invoices right from your FreshBooks account. So while you can download an invoice PDF or copy and paste a shareable invoice link, you can also send professional invoices right from your desktop or mobile device with a single click. Here’s the full article about sending invoices with the FreshBooks online invoice generator.
How can my clients automatically pay their invoices?
Clients receiving an invoice with line items for subscription-based products or services will find it easy to save their credit card, banking, or other payment details on the FreshBooks invoice software so they’re automatically billed each time an invoice comes due. Imagine doing this without invoicing software—dealing with paper invoices and receipts and having to keep track of phone and address records separately.
Automatic invoicing in FreshBooks with Recurring Payments makes it simple for clients to pay and for you to accept payments for products or services rendered. Recurring Payments works together with Recurring Templates to automatically bill clients every time an invoice is generated and sent.
Saved payment information can always be removed if your clients want to opt-out of Recurring Payments at any time. Click here for all the details about saving payment information with the Freshbooks billing and invoicing software, and make unpaid invoices a thing of the past.
