Making invoices and tracking time is one the few things that would make any freelancer a pro. This is also a basic need for small businesses.
Many of us use downloadable software programs such as Express Invoice to keep track of our accounts and invoices. They work, they work indeed but online tools always have the advantage of being available everywhere, even on the go and on public PCs.
This is a collection of the best FREE services available on internet for invoicing and time tracking.
100% Free. Unlimited invoices to unlimited clients. Simple as that. I rate this site high because of it’s neat design, and it is very easy-to-understand. It also allows you to make custom designed invoice template.
Send quotations or invoices. This one also is 100% Free. Unlimited invoices to unlimited clients. One of the good things about this site is that your account can be integrated with Paypal, Beanstream or Sage Payment Services so your clients can pay you immediately. They claim “Get your invoices paid an average of 2 weeks faster by accepting online payments through Billing Boss” It also interacts with your iPhone. This is the BEST invoicing tool but because of its so many features, it becomes a little hard to use, this is the only reason this is at #2
Another free billing manager. It offers some other free services, such as send reminders to the customers having an outstanding amount. You can also manually add or import a CSV file in in your accounts.
This service is ranked very high, it also supports a number of addons but you can only deal with 3 clients at a time in the free package. I am giving the link to their price-plan page, so you can easily decide whether to buy a package or just have the free one.
Yes, Paypal, this is also an invoicing service, so it should be mentioned.
The free account only allows only 15 quotes, 10 clients and 3 invoices per month. But it includes many other handy features such as that quotes can be converted to invoice or save invoices as PDFs. The price plan is also quite economical compared to the other paid services which I’m not mentioning here, I mean there’s no point to mention them, you wouldn’t wanna waste your time, I don’t like to waste your time either.
Time-tracking and invoicing application. Again, free account does gives the magical word of “Unlimited” but it is still useful for bloggers or other people who do not have a lot of invoicing to do.
A very simple service with no advanced features, for instance you can’t receive online payments.
A very basic type of service for your invoicing needs. The free account does not provide as much functionality as we would like but since it is very easy to use and you can also export invoices to PDF, Excel or Word files. For further details and price plan, please click the title.
