Best Payments & Invoicing Software in 2018

Payments & invoicing is the lifeblood of a business when it comes to accounting and finance. Without effective payments and invoicing management, a business will not be able to track its income and expenses. At the same time, they will lose track of the cash flow. At its core, payments and invoicing seems like a routine function the business can handle without hassle but the intricacies of the task coupled with the frequency at which it occurs make automation necessary. Virtually every accounting and finance software offer solutions for this particular function, enabling businesses to tally their payments and invoicing, including handling debts and following up with clients that have not honored their commitments. Each aspect of payments and invoicing will be considered under this subcategory.  Read the full software guide...

Payments & Invoicing Software Guide

What is Payments & Invoicing Software?

Payments & Invoicing software aims to simplify invoicing, payment processing and expense tracking so you can spend less time on billing management and more on your core business.

You can use products in this category to automate billing, create and manage invoices, accept online payments, track work hours and generate billing cycle reports. Some products even allow you to store customer information, automatically send reminders for outstanding payments, generate tax reports and automate recurring billing.

Some important considerations when choosing payments & invoicing software: should the program integrate with your existing accounting software?; could it handle multiple users?; does the software allow you to include all important details in your invoice?; and are there any customizable templates on offer?

The more advanced products provide greater customization options. For instance, some programs also allow you to customize your invoice reminders, set a separate schedule for each customer, or recommend different credit limits for different customers depending on their credit history.

Almost all accounting software solutions have some payments & invoicing features, but most of them have limitations. If you are looking for advanced features such as auto-billing, you should choose a standalone solution for payment & invoicing.
