An invoice is basically a commercial document that is issued by the seller to the buyer. It records the entire transaction stating the product description, quantity, agreed price etc. It is indicative that the buyer must pay the seller, according to  the terms mentioned on the invoice. On the other hand, a proforma invoice is a kind of invoice. It is used in foreign trade. It indicates a commitment from the seller to provide goods to buyer at specific price. It includes value of customs. It is not a real invoice and is not issues until the seller and buyer have agreed to the terms of the order. Normally it is used for obtaining advance payment from the buyer.

An invoice is an itemized
statement created by seller to a buyer. Very
often companies send a proforma invoice first. The buyer can check all items, prices,
units and total values. After
agreement, the real invoice is
created based on the proforma. It is common
flow. The easiest way is to use dedicated software with such
functionality, it saves
your time.
