The main difference between a receipt and an invoice is that the seller issues the receipt after receiving the payment and the invoice is issued by the seller before the payment is made. A sales receipt is a document that confirms the fact that a particular product has been purchased from this seller. In general, the sales receipt should contain the information about the seller, the name of the goods, the date of sale, the items, and the price of the goods.

Disadvantages are limited customization, long time for retyping different details, inability to send a document by link, or in PDF. Also, your customer can’t pay online (Paypal, Stripe).
