Receive and Manage Payments Easily using Invoice by Vella

Whether you run an online store or a physical store, invoices are a simple way to receive, manage and track payments from your local and international customers.

Investopedia defines an invoice as a document that maintains a record of a transaction between a buyer and seller, such as a paper receipt from a store or online record from an e-tailer.

A professional invoice gives a proper breakdown of a transaction between a buyer and seller as it includes a unique invoice number, clear description of products purchased, costs of products purchased and the terms of payment.

If you are a business owner or a freelancer who sells products or offers services to customers and clients , Vella Invoice is the perfect invoicing solution for you as it enables you to generate an unlimited amount of professional invoices while providing secure and seamless payment options for your paying customer or client based in any part of the world.
