For a completely free app invoicedude.com has a lot of functions and no limits on the number of clients and invoices your account generates. And whilst it’s very simple to set up and navigate, the number of functions available might surprise some people.
Bill with your own branded invoices in all major currencies of the world and receive payment via PayPal. If your client has multiple contacts who all need sight of an invoice then invoicedude.com can handle that as long as all relevant email addresses are entered in the client set-up. Client details can only be imported from Microsoft Outlook at this time as an alternative to manual loading.
Your clients can also benefit by having access to the details of their outstanding invoices and payment history with your business.
There is flexibility within the system to customize client email notifications in reminder situations and also to set up the automatic sending of recurring invoices. Keeping tabs on what’s been paid and what’s outstanding is done via the interactive dashboard which illustrates the position with charts and graphs on a weekly and monthly basis. Data can be easily exported in CSV format.
If you want your businesses invoice process to have a more independent look, $5 a month will let you run your account in your own domain and without the invoicedude.com branded emails. If you want to have it totally customizable and running on your own server then you can do this too with prices ranging from $75 to $695.
This invoicing app has some good features for a free service. If you want to part company with cash for add-ons or to run it on your own server it’s up to you but it kind of defeats the object of doing it all in the cloud.
