How we make sending invoices easy

Send invoices digitally

It’s easy to send your invoices electronically – either as an electronic invoice directly into your business customers’ system or as an eBill into your private customers’ e-banking. As well as saving on effort, you also save on paper, printing and postage costs and benefit from a higher delivery rate.

Outsource your invoice mailing

Are not all your customers and partners able to receive invoices digitally? No problem.

With Paper Bill, you can outsource your invoice mailing efficiently and securely. You have a digital interface for all invoices, and we take care of mailing and returns management for you. This saves you time and money.

How to save time and money on receiving invoices

Receive invoices digitally

Receive invoices from your suppliers and business partners directly into your accounting system via a convenient interface. This eliminates manual data entry processes and significantly shortens turnaround and processing times. Electronic invoicing reduces the effort and cost of processing invoices by up to 60 percent.

The e-bill is the perfect basis for automating and improving the quality of customers’ accounts payable workflow. Both we and our customers save time, as manual invoice processing is eliminated. Last but not least, all parties involved contribute to protecting the environment, as digital e-billing is a paperless process.
