The web developer invoice is for any IT professional or programmer that assist in the creation or servicing of a website. This broad invoice may be related to the work of registering/renewing domain names, setting up servers, modifying web themes (WordPress, Joomla, etc.), setting up payment processes and any other type of web-related work. Depending on the size of the project, the web developer may be paid for an on-going basis or as a lump sum when the work is complete. Most web developers are independent contractors and prefer electronic payment made via PayPal, Transferwise, Veem, or other payment methods.

What does a web developer do? There is no standard definition for a web developer because it is not a profession that solely focuses on one thing. Although vague, a web developer is someone who works on websites in some type of way. Most web developers know a programming language, python or html to name a few of the many, which allows them to “program” applications, design, or even software on a website.
Type of Web Developers
Freelance – The method in which most web developers start as beginners, also known as freelancers. Without having to find an official job, they can seek out small jobs on the internet that are inline with their current developing skills.
Front End Developer – A front end developer is a person that specializes in constructing the design and structural layout of a website. Creating templates for content management systems, such as WordPress, is a popular job among front end developers. Today, almost anyone can be their own front end developer with a little knowledge of code as long as they have a CMS and a template to work with.
Full Stack Developer – A developer that has a complete knowledge of front and back-end web development. A company will hire a full stack developer to oversee a large team of other developers. Or a company that only has enough to budget for one developer will seek a developer with full stack credentials.
Google offers their own test (Google Developers Certification) for developers to demonstrate their proficiency and knowledge. However, instead of having certifications, developers are more known to build their online presence by collaborating on the platform Github.
