Can somebody please recommend basic invoicing system/software?

Currently using a excel template but need something that I can type in and send off right away to save some time.

What works for you?

    Why not just create a Word document with all that you need and then enter the relevant details when you need a new invoice? I do that and it's simple.

    I've heard good things about Freshbooks. Think they offer a free trial. Good luck.

      My basic rule of thumb. if you are not using at the very least quickbooks, you are not serious about business.

      I use freshbooks and love it. Use it for my accounting purposes as well.

      Merchant account I link to it is Stripe

    You could use http://paypal.com. They have a really simple invoicing system. You can also set up recurring payments with them as well.

  • You could also try invoiceable.co. It lets you keep records on multiple clients, you can connect it to your paypal, it allows you to create multiple templates, and it's free!

    I used PayPal for a while. They have an easy to use invoice system. After my business grew I switched to FreshBooks and Stripe. Stripe now has 2 business day transfer of funds for the US and I really like FreshBooks.

    Some of my clients have had a hard time figuring out how to pay the PayPal invoice with a credit card when they didn't have a PayPal account. FreshBooks invoice is very simple and everyone I bill likes it. They can see all of the invoices that I have sent them (in the past) and download a PDF copy of the bill. Actually some of my higher dollar clients (like law firms) think the FreshBooks system is more professional and has helped in my credibility. Just my 2 cents...

      Stripe has a 7 day transfer of funds in Canada. They need to up it to 2 days cause 7 sucks.

    stripe and paypal are great, but you need to work out your business and how it operates, and what would be best before deciding.

    Do not get caught up on the nitty gritty.
