I’ve been using PayPal for a couple of months now I didn’t know that you can use it to send invoice to your clients. I thought it only allows receiving payments from them.

+1 for ZoHo. As user friendly as paypal, and is way better for foreign accounts (and cheaper too).

There are many sites to help you with invoicing right now as well as software you can use for that. People still prefer services such as PayPal because it’s more convenient.
