Invoicing Directly With PayPal

You can send your buyer an invoice from your PayPal account. Please keep in mind that transactions that start on Etsy need to be completed on Etsy.

Here's how to create an invoice in PayPal for your transaction:

1.) Go to and log in to your account.

2.) Select Create invoice.

Keep in mind that you'll need to gather some information for the PayPal invoice. You can find the following info on the Etsy receipt page under Shop Manager > Orders & Shipping:

  • Buyer's email address

  • Quantity of item(s)

  • Etsy transaction ID number (for the "Item ID" field in PayPal)

  • Item title or short description

  • Price of the item

  • Cost of shipping

Once you create the invoice, an email will be sent to your buyer with a link to PayPal to complete the payment.

Note: For international sellers who use a version of PayPal localized to their country (such as for the United Kingdom), the steps may be slightly different in the non-USA versions of PayPal. Please consult PayPal's Help Center for more information.
