Why should you use Sufio as your invoicing solution?

Optimizing and automating work processes is crucial to the success of your business. The Shopify App Store offers numerous solutions to automate recurring tasks and save you valuable time.

One essential area is invoicing, which can be time-consuming even with a moderate invoice volume. Therefore, automated invoicing apps are of great use to any Shopify merchant.

Shopify offers a variety of such apps to suit every budget and business volume. In a brief comparison of some solutions for automatic invoicing in Shopify, we would like to show you once again why we, as a Shopify Plus agency, particularly recommend Sufio for online merchants.


Billbee is not just an invoicing app, but a comprehensive multi-channel solution. In addition to invoice creation, it also enables the management of accounting tasks, including a freely configurable DATEV export, as well as the simplification of shipping through the creation of shipping labels and the automatic sending of tracking numbers. The app offers a wide range of functions, including clear item management, integration with various store systems and marketplaces as well as the automated creation and dispatch of order documents such as invoices.

Billbee's pricing is transaction-based and starts from 9 euros (net) per month.

Although Billbee is a solid option for multichannel order management, Sufio offers an even more comprehensive solution specifically for automated invoicing.

Order Printer

Order Printer is one of the basics of automatic invoice creation, as the app developed by Shopify is completely free and therefore does not incur any ongoing costs.

However, there are often trade-offs with free apps: While invoices can be created, there is no automatic dispatch, making them more suitable as packing slips that are printed out and enclosed with the package. While this means savings in invoice creation, it takes time to print and insert the invoices into the parcels. There are also costs for printers and paper.

Another disadvantage for users without programming knowledge is that the only available template is in English by default and therefore needs to be adapted to generate the invoices in your preferred language. In addition, the design of the invoices is kept quite simple. Although the templates are partially customizable, this requires advanced knowledge of HTML or Liquid or the use of the paid Order Printer Templates service for $29.

To summarize, Order Printer is more suitable for beginners or smaller online stores with a limited order volume.

While Order Printer only offers basic invoice printing features and requires customization to translate them into the desired language and improve the design, Sufio is an all-in-one solution with advanced features such as automatic invoice sending, multilingual templates and a professional look and feel.


Unlike other apps, Sufio offers a wide range of professional features and flexible pricing options tailored to the needs of businesses of all sizes.

Sufio's flexible pricing allows businesses of all sizes to choose the option that's right for them. Starting at $7 per month for the Starter plan all the way up to the Premium plan, which offers unlimited invoices and powerful automation workflows, Sufio offers a comprehensive invoicing solution.

Overall, Sufio is the optimal solution when it comes to automated invoicing. With its outstanding performance, extensive features and flexible pricing, it is the ideal choice for companies that want to optimize their invoicing processes while maintaining a professional appearance.
