How can I get invoice for Premium Member payment?
all our payments are processed by PayPal and you should receive a receipt (payment confirmation) from PayPal after your payment. If you haven't received it, please make sure it hasn't been marked as spam and check your primary email address assigned to PayPal.
any chance to get a real invoice. Having issues with PayPal invoice, my accountant says.
PayPal's receipt should be treated as a valid confirmation of a transaction in the majority of countries.
Unfortunately, we don't send invoices ourselves as all our payments are processed by PayPal, but if you need to include our company data in your invoices, this is our address:
Ist Productivity Ltd.
5 Burnett House
London SE13 7PD
If you make your payment only about paypal pleas write your full adress there.
In additon in Europe it's very important if you have a VAT-Number or not.
Please tell me if you have one.
we do not have a VAT number.
I need an invoice as well; A paypal receipt is definitely not enough. :s
Unfortunately, we do not issue invoices. All our payments are processed by PayPal and the receipt can be used as a valid proof of purchase for invoicing purposes (along with our company address posted above in this thread).
I also would have liked to have an invoice, PayPal is only a payment service.....if you supply the software, then you should provide an invoice as well as any company does.
This is only a small amount and it is worth while paying for your excellent tool, but it sounds not professional to avoid sending invoices !
We're sorry for the inconvenience. We will consider adding better invoicing options in the future, for now please use PayPal's receipt for invoicing purposes. PayPal is a recognized payment system and you can use their receipts to document a purchase.
as I wrote before, I like your tool and I accept the fact that I can't declare this small amount on my accounts, definitely Paypal receipt is not acceptable for fiscal controls....
Hope you can solve this matter in the future,
thanks anyway for your prompt answer,
Hi, I write form Italy, land of burocracy...
We have the same problem, even for 14$ it is requested an invoice.
Unfortunately, we don't issue invoices for our services. When you've paid for Todoist Premium, PayPal has send you a receipt which you can use to confirm that the purchase took place.
if you make business you have to make invoices or you have to informate the sellers about your "small business" and special small business laws of your country.
If you don't make invoices the best will be, that you only sell to privat users.
It's really nonsens what you do and you shouldn't sell your software to people which need invoices and not within the EU, if you have no VAT-No.
The PayPal receipt is no invoice and I can't use it for that.
Special greetings to your local tax office.
If you don't now how business works, please let it be.
A potential premium user here. Unfortunately I won't be able to upgrade until you solve the invoicing issue. Running my own business, I don't understand why it is a problem at all. (I assume that what you're doing is somehow legal in the UK, though I don't really get it.)
I have almost pressed the button to do the purchase, but pretty happy to have it checked. Not a big amount, but I've just had enough of different web based services not providing proper invoices (which then results of the sum being deducted from my salary of course). The last one was google, BTW. Let me know when you manage to solve this tremendous problem and I'll be happy to upgrade ;).
Yes, as the others already wrote: I need defintely an invoice fot the tax office. I'm working in germany as a journalist and I need an invoice because I will use Todoist for business. You are indentured to send an invoice if your offer your service in germany and your customers need an invoice.
That's no big thing: all other web services send invoices. Paypal receipt is not enough! Please help. I can't understand why writing an invoice should be a problem.
I will think about cancelling my premium membership if no invoice is possible.
We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we can't offer you an invoice right now. We're going to find a different payment option in the future and also look into the option to send invoices through it.
Question for Todoist staff:
Why is this so difficult??? Even if you don't want to do it for everyone, just do it for those that request it.
You open a word document and type in following details:
-Your company information
-My company information
-The word "invoice" ,with an invoice number (just put 1 for the first one you make)
Click "save as pdf" and send it to us and you're done!
Even small one man companies who do this as a second job always provide invoices without a problem, so the only reason I could possibly think of why Todoist is unwilling to do this is that this is some kind of illegal unregistered company trying to evade taxes or something?
I really like Todoist and don't want to be forced to stop using it because of something stupid like this, but without invoice, it's impossible to declare this as a cost... I paid out of my own pocket once because of a promotion, but I'm not planning to do it again and will cancel my premium membership after the expiration date if this is not solved, even though I like the service.
We're sorry for the inconvenience. We'll certainly look into such option in the future and hope you'll continue to enjoy using Todoist regardless of its price.
thanks for your answer. I hope, you keep your promise in the near future.
Even Spotify sends manual written invoices if you ask for them.
Have a nice day, Peter.
this has nothing todo with the payment options.
The receipt from paypal is just the transfer of the money.
An invoice is something completely different. And it's not only necessary for us, it's for you as well.
Because if you don't have any, you will get problems with your local tax office.
For me the same: Without invoice, I have to cancel subscription.
you still don't offer invoices after opening this thread. And this is 2 years ago, nearly.
So, how is the status of sending invoices for premium members? I would like to have one, too. And the paypal-email isn't enough.
How far in the future you will offer invoices to your customers?
I don't think they ever will. This seems to work for them, so they won't change until they have to. This definitely isn't a software development issue, but rather a taxation/administrational one on their side.
I'm not sure if what they are doing is legal or not, but it's pretty surprising not wanting to create a proper company behind an online service that collects money.
On a side note: while originally I wanted to become a paying customer, I have largely abandoned the service exactly because of this.
We're sorry for the inconvenience, we're planning to start offering invoices next year.
I need a Invoice. So try to provide me one, please.
We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we're not issuing invoices right now. We're going to offer such service in the future, though.
I did not received any confirmation of payment from paypal? I too would like some sort of invoice or receipt.
Please check all SPAM folders and sections in your email, as it does get sent when you make the purchase, PayPal send the email if paid through them.
Still no news about proper invoice?
You promise it since a year.
I changed to other apps but I would give Todoist a second chance if I get an invoice ...
Unfortunately, not yet and we're sorry for the delays. We will offer move business-friendly solutions/offers in the future and will introduce regular invoicing.
You've been saying this same thing for 2 years now. What's holding you back?
Although I can't give you a list of reasons for these delays, I can assure you that we're close to offering this service and other business-friendly payment options and solutions. Sorry for the delays.
this is not an appropriate approach. We have a regular business, so should you. If you do not provide invoices, your practice appears to be money laundering. What is your reply to that?
P.S: You have a great product, but as business men you are still beginners. (-1)
I completely agree with you, but I'm a user here (well, an ex-user), not one of the developers :). David Trey is a staff member, your comment should go to him.
It's really strange. No change after all this time.
Spotify doesn't send invoices by default too, but when you send an email of course you get an invoice.
Maybe the only way that helps here is to write bad reviews in the app store.
I've just upgraded to premium but realise you do not issue invoices ?!?
I use todoist to work and it seems justified to me that my company pay for it, wich it did.
But if you can't emit an invoice, please cancel my premium subscription as i won't be able to justify it.
The order to refund : ch_3ZAonm4oaXJagd
Unfortunately, we're currently not issuing invoices, but we'll offer such service in the future. You should have received a receipt confirming your payment, though.
Thank you for this information! Your payment has now been refunded.
Thanks for the quick reply and the refund, but i must insist as everyone here did before : a receipt is not a valid piece.
It's says to our tax controler : "Hey, i did spend some money, but i won't tell you on what, it might be work related, or it might have been for my own pleasure, who cares ?", wich is inevitably going for a fine.
I guess you understand well the legal issue, otherwise you would emit fake invoices already... ;)
You promise invoices since a year or so ... I don't believe anymore that this will happen. And no one understands why it's a problem to send a proper invoice.
Paypal receipt isn't enough for a tax office.
Peter, some people just don't wont to earn money... ;)
Haha, seems so ...
I've been premium member and cancelled my subscription because of that.
Now I'm back again using it in the office without proper invoices because Todoist is quite nice.
But as soon as there will be a service with similar features I will gone again if there will be no invoices.
