Billings Pro product overview

What is Billings Pro?

Billings Pro is an easy to use estimating, time tracking and invoicing app for freelancers and small businesses. Exclusively for the Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Billings Pro helps keep it simple so you can get back to doing what you do best.

Key benefits of using Billings Pro

  • With easy time, expense, and mileage tracking, you can add billable items to your clients record immediately. Your info syncs across your Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch so you won't have to waste additional time updating information later on.

  • Build stronger relationships by sending detailed, accurate, and clear invoices. Using slip notes and invoice comments, your client will know exactly what they are being billed for.

  • Ensure your invoice answers all the necessary questions. Leverage one of the Professional Services layouts so you can have your invoice grouped in more meaningful ways (grouped by services, additional charges and worker summary, or with a summary cover, line item details and retainer history).

  • Choose from 30+ professionally designed templates for the Mac (3 templates for the iPhone and iPad) to create estimates, invoices, and statements.

  • Share information with team members or collaborate with colleagues on projects. You can start an estimate from one device and have your colleague start the work from another.

  • Track time, enter expenses, mileage, quantity, flat rates, payments or send statements without an internet connection. Once connected, you can send estimates, invoices, and sync information with team members.

    A real time saver! (Pun Intended)

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I have been using this app for almost five years now. When I opened my own business in January 2010, I quickly discovered I needed a time tracker and invoicing solution. I did try a couple off the shelf boxed solutions but they just didn't seem to fit my needs. I came across Billings For Mac very soon after opening my web design business and I have never looked back. With the recent cloud based workflow it has even further enhanced my current workflows. Having my desktop and devices all synced together means that Billings Pro works where I work. I can see myself continuing to use Billings Pro for many years to come. Thank you Marketcircle team!

    Pros

    Ease of use, Versatile, iOS Integration, Device Synchronization, Easy to set up, Recurring Invoices, Custom Tax configurations, Invoice Templates, Excellent Support.

    Cons

    No Canadian Pricing. Canadian users can expect to pay up to 50% more once the exchange and credit card fees are applied. Would be great to see some of the base Daylite functionality built into Billings Pro.

    Excellent Product

    Reviewed 9 months ago

    I've been using for nearly 8 years.

    Pros

    I use Billings Pro for invoicing and time tracking in my law practice. It works very well for this purpose. The customer service at Marketcircle is fantastic.

    Cons

    It would be awesome if it could track expenses easier (including photos of receipts).

    A Tale of Two Apps

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    Billngs Pro for the Mac is great; it's companion IOS app, Billings Pro for iPad, leaves a lot to be desired.

    Cons

    Fix Billings Pro for iPad. The app is volatile, doesn't provide enough options for saving an invoice in progress. While the iPad app provides the means to record information such as purchase orders, it does not provide the means to include that field in the final invoice. The iPad app is a work in progress.

    A great program for simple invoicing

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I've used Billings and Billings Pro for 15 years. I reluctantly switched to a different invoicing platform recently to allow my clients to pay me via credit cards.

    Pros

    Billings Pro is the easiest option I know of for creating beautiful invoices. I've been using it since before it became "Pro" and have loved its simplicity.

    Cons

    I wish it integrated with a payment portal that would allow clients to pay their invoices via credit card. Unfortunately, this is an important limitation to this software.

    Felt I Couldn't Trust it Anymore

    Reviewed a year ago

    Not good. I need an billing program that I can trust.

    Pros

    I chose Billings Pro because it integrated with Daylite (which I LOVE!) and it was easy to use and had a good user interface.

    Cons

    I left Billings Pro because I just felt I could no longer trust it. I was finding too many instances where bills weren't going out properly or weren't being recorded properly. It also did not integrate with Quickbooks
