Difference between packing slip and invoice

Packing slip and invoice are quite similar in nature but they are intended to serve different purposes. The use of packing slip is limited to serve as a document that provides details of the item in a package. However, an invoice is a financial document that gives information about the total amount to be paid by the receiving party/ buyer. The packing slip denotes how many items are there in order while an invoice states the price of each item and the total amount to be paid.

Another difference between the two is that the packing slip addresses the person that will receive the payment whereas an invoice is addressed to someone who will pay the due amount for the shipment.
