Invoicing doesn’t have to be for web designers only. Any business that conducts individual deals that may not conform to a shopping cart model, can utilize a service to request payment. Paypal has an invoicing tool which is good, but not every customer will want to nor use Paypal for various reasons. Having a service that can allow for flexible payment methods is a nicer solution. Although, unless it is free for a small amount of online invoicing, it may not be a good fit for micro businesses.

Every web designer has a need to create invoices and track payments that have been received or have not yet been paid. Fortunately, there are a number of tools that can streamline this process, and we’ll look at 20 options here. There is a good deal of variety in terms of features and pricing. Some are better suited for organizations that have several employees, while others may be a good fit for a freelancer. Some of these tools will simply help you to create attractive invoices and other will extend further into the area of accounting software.
