Hi, I'm going back into selling art and I've notice a few people sending out invoices
I'm a complete noob when it comes to PayPal so I was wondering if it's going to
help with those people who claim for a refund for not receiving their art and what not?

Or is it just something that helps people keep track of their money?
Not sure if want

invoices are usually helpful for artists / sellers who have a possible change of getting backcharged, aka a buyer claiming their money back, even if the artist already gave them the art or not.

they also let you customize each invoice, so you can add your terms and conditions and simply state that no refunds are allowed. so when someone wrongfully backcharges someone, the artist can get proof to a paypal specialist that the refund was not supposed to be given in the first place.

it's safer for sellers, and more professional. asking for payment through friends and family is against paypal ToS and can get you fined for thousands of dollars. gifts and services is a decent payment method as well, but it's against the Paypal ToS to ask for fees being payed for.

however, most artists nowadays just include the fees in the price.

getting off track, but basically it's a safer and easier way to collect money from customers.

however, if you do keep proof that the artist did not give you art after you sent payment, that can be used against the artist, if that's what you're looking for.

i see, thank you so much!!
i wasn't sure at first as to the benefits of invoicing, but i guess it's better than just asking people to send directly. thank you!
