Stripe Invoicing pricing

Stripe Invoicing offers two pricing tiers: Invoicing Starter at 0.4% per paid invoice for businesses with simpler invoicing needs and Invoicing Plus at 0.5% per paid invoice for businesses with more advanced invoicing requirements. These fees apply only to one-time invoices and do not include payment processing or recurring billing fees. Users are only charged when an invoice is paid through Stripe.

Stripe Invoicing has two pricing tiers to choose from, Invoicing Starter and Invoicing Plus.

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.

Post-payment invoices for one-time purchases in Checkout and Payment Links is not an Invoicing feature. Pricing for post-payment invoices for one-time purchases in Checkout and Payment Links is available here.


Is there any price change for active Stripe Invoicing customers?

Invoicing Starter

2023 updates: As communicated on July 12, 2023, Stripe is making pricing changes to Invoicing Starter and Invoicing Plus pricing plans.

Invoicing Starter: Starting November 1, 2023, we will no longer offer 25 free invoices every month. We will continue to charge 0.4% per paid invoice. Since we launched Invoicing in 2021, we’ve made substantial improvements: you can let your customers pay and manage their invoices using our no-code customer portal, revise and track invoices, and more. These features are included in the Invoicing Starter plan.

If you no longer need full invoicing functionality, you can use Payment Links to share a link with your customers to get paid—at no additional cost.

Invoicing Plus

In 2021, we introduced new pricing for Invoicing, and at that time, provided a grace period for existing users until January 31, 2024. Starting January 31, Invoicing Plus users will be charged our standard pricing of 0.5% for paid invoices.

Invoicing Plus includes advanced features such as Smart Retries, quotes, and automatic reconciliation. If you don’t need these advanced features, you can switch to Invoicing Starter (0.4% per paid invoice) at any time or share a payment link (at no additional cost).

For more on these changes, see our updated Invoicing pricing support page.

2022 updates: We communicated upcoming pricing changes for new users of Invoicing Starter on August 8, 2022.

2021 updates: 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 fees waived for Invoicing Plus or the 25 free invoices for Invoicing Starter, as applicable.

If you are a new user, defined as a user that has never sent a Stripe Invoice or has not sent an invoice since December 31, 2020, you will receive our updated Invoicing Starter pricing.

What happened to the $7 auto-reconciliation fee?

We removed this separate fee for all users on May 5, 2021. 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.

Can I get custom pricing for Stripe Invoicing?

If you process a large volume of payments or high order value invoices and want to discuss custom rates, contact us.

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 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. Our Billing Scale plan includes Invoicing Plus, Revenue Recognition, and advanced Billing features.

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.

We launched Billing Scale for businesses that need both recurring billing and one-time invoices–see the Billing 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 invoice revisions, improved ACH debit, and Stripe Tax support. 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.

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.
