Stripe Invoicing pricing

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.


Is there any price change for active Stripe Invoicing customers?

We communicated upcoming pricing changes for Invoicing Starter on August 8, 2022. If you sent a one-time invoice between May 12, 2021 and August 10, 2022, there is no change to your Invoicing Starter pricing at this time.  

2021: 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.
