Are you struggling with finding the right template for your monthly invoicing?
Sometimes, that can be hard and struggling, especially when you are a perfectionist. I’ve been there. In my first freelance job, I was not sure what is the right format and template for my invoice.
I couldn’t find the good and FREE one online, and finally, I got some ideas from a colleague of mine.
My solution for that is the Google Sheets invoice template.
In this post, I will share some templates with you, that you can easily edit and adjust to your own need.
Before anything else, you need a Google account, if you don’t have one, follow this link, we have a guide to that. But if your Google account is set, let’s start.
Start with Google Sheets
Log In To Your Google Account
Use The Google Sheets Template Gallery
Now, Open The Template Gallery
Choose Your Invoice Template
Yes, you just made it.
Customize Google Sheets Invoice Template
Now, you can customize this invoice with editing these items:
- Add Name of your company (or Yourself if you are a freelancer)
- Add the logo (if you have one)
- Add the name, quantity, and price of items or services
- Under Invoice For is a place for your customer information
- Payable to is a place for you
- Invoice # is a place for the invoice number. If you don’t know, An invoice number is a unique, sequential code that is systematically assigned to invoices.
- A project is a place for the title and name of your project.
- Due Date (Unsurprisingly, the main reason to state a set due date on an invoice is to encourage your customers to pay you within a certain period of time. While it is possible to agree on a later payment date, a customer should pay you within 30 days. I am writing 14 days 😉 )
Export The Templates
After that, your invoice is ready, you can export PDF file from it.
Now, your file is ready to send. I hope you will receive your money on-time and enjoy your earning.
Tips for using Google Sheets Invoice Template
But before leaving I have some more tips for you:
- You can save the template with your data and use it for future needs
- You can connect this with a sheet of your item and services when you have many items with different prices, you can call them and in the final version have just a drop-down menu.
- If you log your working hours in the timesheet, that can be integrated into the invoice as well.

A packing slip details the items ordered and sent in a delivery. Including a packing slip in a shipment can help rectify any discrepancies between items ordered and delivered, because customers can clearly see the reason(s) for undelivered items.

A purchase order is similar to a commercial invoice, but the buyer provides it to a supplier in order to request goods or services.
By accepting it, the seller creates a contract with the buyer based on the terms outlined in the purchase order.
This purchase order template provides just enough detail to make the process straightforward for both buyers and sellers.
