Stripe Invoicing has two pricing tiers to choose from, Invoicing Starter and Invoicing Plus.
Invoicing Starter includes 25 free invoices per month; after that you’ll pay 0.4% per paid invoice. It’s designed for businesses with simpler invoicing needs or fewer customers.
Invoicing Plus costs 0.5% per paid invoice, and it includes several additional tools to help businesses collect more revenue and save time with reconciliation as they scale.
Detailed product and fee information is available on the Stripe Invoicing pricing page.
Note that this pricing applies to one-time invoices only—recurring invoices or invoices generated via a subscription are part of Stripe Billing.
Is there any price change for active Stripe Invoicing customers?
If you sent a one-time invoice between January 1, 2021 and May 12, 2021, you will receive Invoicing Plus for no change to your current pricing until January 31, 2024. After that, you will be able to choose between the Invoicing Starter and Plus pricing plans—and you can switch plans at any time.
If you renegotiate your payment processing rates with Stripe, you will no longer get Invoicing Plus fees waived.
What happened to the $7 auto-reconciliation fee?
We removed this separate fee for all users on May 5th. Auto-reconciliation is now included as part of Invoicing Plus.
Am I charged for every Stripe invoice that I send?
No, you are only charged once an invoice is paid via Stripe. You are not charged for any invoices that are unpaid, voided, marked uncollectible, or paid outside of Stripe.
How do the 25 free invoices with Invoicing Starter work?
The first 25 invoices that get paid each month are free with Invoicing Starter. The 0.4% fee on invoicing volume is applied starting with the 26th paid invoice during a month.
Can I get custom pricing for Stripe Invoicing?

Does Stripe Invoicing pricing include Payments pricing?
No. Stripe payment processing starts at 2.9% + $0.30 for card payments and has lower fees for non-card payment methods (see stripe.com/pricing for details)
Stripe Invoicing is built on top of Stripe Payments, letting you accept credit cards, debit cards, and mobile wallets around the world. We also support international cards, currency conversion, dozens of payment methods including ACH, 3D secure authentication, and instant payouts for an additional fee.
Does Stripe Invoicing pricing include Billing or subscriptions?
No. Stripe Invoicing fees apply only to one-time invoices. Stripe Billing provides flexible recurring billing logic. Fees start at 0.5% of recurring transactions, which include any recurring invoices.
How will I be charged if I use both recurring Stripe Billing and Stripe Invoicing?
Recurring billing fees are covered by Stripe Billing—see the Billing pricing page for details.
One-time invoice fees are part of Stripe Invoicing pricing—see the Invoicing pricing page for details.
Why does Stripe charge for invoicing software?
Many businesses still spend too much time on their invoicing workflows. We want to deliver a better product to help businesses save time and get paid faster, and we think it’s worth paying for. For example, we recently introduced new features like multi-currency support, mobile invoicing, a new invoice Dashboard editor, and invoice PDF email attachments. Charging for Invoicing means we can keep investing in improvements like these—and more to come. We designed our pricing model to be usage-based with no flat fees or setup costs, so that you only pay more as your business grows.
90%+ of businesses on Stripe send less than 25 invoices per month—we designed Invoicing Starter with this in mind so businesses have an option with no fees on top of payment processing.
Is an invoice the same thing as a receipt?
No. You can send an email receipt as confirmation that a Stripe payment was successful.
Invoices provide an itemized list of goods and services rendered, which includes the cost, quantity, and taxes. You can also use them as a tool to collect payment.
