We believe that billing for your freelance work should be intuitive and simple. For this reason, we’re introducing a new invoicing system, so you can focus on your work rather than chasing payments!

Once you have an agreement in place with your employer, you’ll be set up for auto-billing. We’ll create invoices for you – for weekly hours worked or once a milestone is due – based on the terms in your agreement.

Hourly invoices will be automatically sent on a weekly basis. For milestone invoices, just look them over, add any notes or attachments you want, and send. If your employer is maintaining a Minimum SafePay balance (per your agreement), these invoices will be paid automatically!

Need to bill for work outside of an agreement? Create and send a custom invoice for anything you want.

The new invoicing system will be in place along with other improvements on Jan. 8.

    Sounds good but too mechanical and electronical. I prefer sending invoices and safepay release requests by myself. I treat my customers in a friendly manner. I like to make them feel less digital and more manual..
    I request you to have this option available along with new one.

    I Thank Guru for the improvements..

      Hi Atula,
      I apologize for causing you concern. Let me make this clear: You will have the opportunity to review each invoice and make changes before it is sent. You can also send an invoice manually using the “miscellaneous invoice”. I hope this puts your mind at ease.

    This appears to be detrimental to the person hiring the free lancers. Auto pay takes away the ability for reviewing the work before a free lancer is paid. There must be a mechanism for approval before any payment is made to the free lancer. Thank you

      Richard, you most definitely still have the chance to review work before the freelancer is paid. You set the grace period in your agreement with your freelancer. Then, you have x number of days after you receive an invoice to review the work and either approve and pay the invoice, or decline and dispute the invoice. Hope this makes it more clear!

    I agree with Atula’s comment. This should be an option and not mandatory.
