Being a small business owner often means there’s an endless list of responsibilities to manage. Some of these tasks take time away from the bigger picture of growing your business. Most small home based business owners don’t have an accounts payable department; usually the job of invoicing and keeping track of payment falls to you. Take control, and save time and money with a reputable, billing made easy, invoicing website.
Along with invoices some sites also generate quotes, estimates, purchase orders, sales receipts and credit memos. You’ll want to create or use your own business logo on your business forms to help your business appear professional. Some solopreneurs avoid online invoicing sites or software due to not wanting their own forms marked with the others name. Not all do so.
Most sites are easy to use and provide tutorial videos to get you started. If you bill the same clients the same monthly contract price, there’s often an option to copy invoices to speed up your invoicing process. Your invoice numbers will automatically populate based on the previous invoice number keeping your invoices in an orderly sequence. You can print them off to mail to your clients if they prefer snail mail to email. Security shouldn’t be a concern as all data communication on the site’s servers are encrypted. All invoicing sites provide automatic regular backup of all data.
Pricing plans vary. A new option, Invoice Home, offers free and unlimited plans ($5/month) to stay on top of customer accounts. Visit Invoice Home today to see how they make billing easy for home based businesses.
