3 Ways to Make Your Invoice Stand Out from the Crowd

FreshBooks research shows that word choice plays a huge part in getting your invoices noticed and paid faster. Try these three tactics on your next invoice.

Be Polite

It pays to mind your manners—literally. A simple “please” and “thank you” can increase the likelihood of your invoice being paid by more than 5 per cent.

Use Plain Language

Don’t complicate your invoice with confusing payment terms. For example, writing 30 days versus Net 30 is much more clear and easy to understand.

Include an Interest Charge

When clients see an interest rate on an invoice, it gives them a big incentive to pay on time. It’s an easy way to turn late-payers into early birds.
