Billing and Invoicing Apps – Small Business Owners Weigh In

The other day on Google+ I asked some fellow members of an Entrepreneurial community what invoicing and billing applications they were using in their business. Here is what they replied back with:

Billing and Invoicing Apps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s safe to say from this feedback the majority of them are using Quickbooks for their online accounting and billing systems.

However, I am currently using Invoiceable.co – which in my opinion is an amazing free billing application. This leads me to the topic of today’s blog post:

What are some of the best billing and invoicing applications for Small Business?

Here are my top 5 picks: 

1. Invoiceable.co – Thus far, this application is “numero uno” on my list for small business billing and invoicing apps.

Hi There, I use http://www.aynax.com. Costs 10/month but connects to my PayPal account (so can accept credit as well) and tells me when customers have viewed my invoice. Been happy with the service.

invoiceable is a nice accounting solution, However in my experience Waveapps has been far more superior I’m suprised it made it to #2.

Thanks for the list, I might give Blinksale a try in my unending quest of finding the best invoicing service.

Hey there Jon. Thanks so much for commenting. I have recently learned about Wave Accounting so I may have to give it a test drive to see what it’s all about. Please let me know your thoughts on the Blinksale application.

Any list I check I always find Freshbooks. Honestly, I tried Freshbooks but it’s not easy to use at all. I don’t know why so many people use them. However, online invoicing software called Invoiceberry http://www.invoiceberry.com/ is really easy to use, no matter whether you are a freelancer or a small business owner.
