Billbooks is a convenient way to manage invoices and estimates. Users can add a star to client data for quicker access. Each client profile includes their billing history and payment summary as well as any related expenses. Invoice can be generated in PDF format or as an HTML email.

Estimate tools are just as enticing with the ability to send invoices in different languages.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Billbooks offers a clean, professional environment that manages to retain a sense of individuality. The sleek design features a bold black header and side bar with well-organized headers and features positioned along the center and right side. New users should have no problem transitioning to Billbooks. Those who are relatively new at invoicing and estimates should take a few minute to explore the application.

How does the registration process work?

New users can try Billbooks by clicking the white “Sign Up Now” link found near the left side of the page inside the black header. The short form on the following page asks for a company name, full name, email address, desired Billbooks domain name and password. The user is automatically logged in to their free account. Another form asks for additional details including country, time zone, currency, language and fiscal year start month. The free account includes up to three invoices.

What does it cost to use the application?

Once all three invoices have been used up on the free account, the user must choose from one of four packages. These are one time purchases with no monthly subscription requirement. The first costs $10 and includes up to 20 invoices. The mid-range plans include 50 invoices for $20 and 100 invoices for $35. The biggest package includes 200 invoices for $60. Each package never expires and includes access to free estimates.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Billbooks is a great tool for businesses that send invoices and bills online. PDFs can be printed for offline clients. The service is great for small teams and companies who may not want to be roped into a monthly subscription. The downside is that a large company that sends many invoices and estimates will not want to have to buy packages over and over again. Overall Billbooks provides appealing features that cater to professionals who work party or entirely online.
