12 Best Free Invoice Generators

What Are Invoice Generators?

Invoice generators are online tools that allow you to create invoices within your web browser. They follow a template to ensure you don’t forget to include important details when filling out your invoices. They are not like invoicing/time-tracking apps like FreshBooks or Zoho Invoicing because invoice generators are single-purposed: They simply help you create an invoice and do not have any advanced features like time-tracking, financial accounting, and team collaboration.

Think of invoice generators as Internet-enabled alternatives to desktop-software invoice templates that are commonly used in Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat or other desktop publishing software.

Check out these free invoice generators:

Free Invoice Generator doesn’t store any data on their web servers; they use an HTML5 feature called Web Storage that allows developers to store complex data in your browser without the need for external web servers and databases.

    I’ve recently completed the development of a start web site. There is free invoicing and recurring billing.

    Really useful for things like maintenance contracts, web hosting, domain names etc.

    Thanks for the mention Jacob (freeinvoicemaker.com)

    Would it be possible to update the screenshot – we recently did a ground-up update to http://freeinvoicemaker.com

    Thanks!

    Invoicera has a free trial period, as does fresh books, but neither are free invoice generators, strictly speaking. I’ve been using freshbooks for months, and keep having to renew my account in order to keep using it. Loved the app, but got tired of losing months of data, so I’m looking for one that is free, permanently. Thanks for the info:)

    There is a good Excel based one here. Really easy to use and has some nice shortcuts such as cloning to streamline the invoicing process…

    Jacob,

    We would love to be considered for the next time you make an invoice creator list or if you want to update this one. 😉

    We just got our new domain https://zipbooks.com and we used the API we built for our iPhone app to build a proof of concept that you could use our API to create a site to create and send invoices without an account. http://freeonlineinvoicer.com

  • MANVINDER SINGH

    WELL DONE THUMPS UP

  • Jared King

    Thanks for the review, Jacob! We recently overhauled Invoiced Lite at https://invoice-generator.com. The update includes a new invoice template, a better invoice editor, and autosave. Best of all it’s still free and unlimited!

  • Genevieve

    Is there an invoice generator you would suggest for a business that sells a larger number of items? Right now I’m using Flint and it takes a long time to create each invoice as I have to scroll through every item before finding the one that I need to add to the invoice. Wish it had the feature where I could start typing the product name and it would appear.

  • Katie

    What happened to Invoice at Once? It’s cool, but the site doesn’t work 🙁

  • Freddy

    Jacob, great list. I didn’t know that PayPal got its own invoice tool! Currently, I’m working on my new project http://moneypenny.me/. I really love its simplicity and it’s even more than a invoice tool. You’re able to handle your whole business in one tab. If you want, you can test it for 30 days for free. I really hope it makes it into your list sometime in the future.

  • lucas

    Hi Katie, the site is working on http:\invoiceatonce.com . Whitout https.

    🙂

  • Scarlet

    We’ve been using Apptivo, our business financial management fully satisfied with the help of this tool.

    Slickpie(www.slickpie.com) is an amazing 100% free online accounting software, especially for small businesses and freelancers. The part I like the most is their outstanding free customer support. The software work fine and it’s pretty simple to use, but to me the best thing about it that it sends automatic payment reminders to clients that haven’t paid the invoices on time.
