It’s no surprise that if you don’t ask for your money, you’re not going to get paid. That’s why this week we’re showing you some of the best invoicing tools we’ve used. Some are free, some aren’t, but you know that saying: you have to spend money to make money. Let me tell you, paying to make it easier for your clients to give you money is definitely an expense worth incurring!
So what piques our interest when it comes to invoicing? Freshbooks is high on the list with a great feature set. PayPal is widely used, but it has a few quirks. Square has rapidly gained ground in this area now that they practically own the in-person payment industry. Lastly, Stripe, Glen’s favorite online credit card gateway, is in beta with a way to send invoices from their system.
Freshbook – Recurring invoice, one off, log your time, expenses, auto sweep of time and expenses that you have no billed yet, take deposits or particial payment.
Square – Invoicing for clients, no limit of invoices, dashboard still a bit clumbsy.
PayPal – Invoicing or clients, no limit of invoices
Stripe – Invoicing for clients, no limit of incoices
