    Pros
    Notifications on how long an invoice has been outstanding have been super helpful in terms of reminding outstanding accounts.

    I have been using this program since they were Curdbee and it is the best. So easy, so good, customer support is great and fast with everything.

    I downloaded the trial very soon after they launched - thinking I would use it for free as long as I could. I've been paying for a subscription for over year now because it was so undeniabley useful.

    Previously I hate to do my invoicing and postponed till the last minute, often way beyond due date.

    I'm currently waiting at 7 weeks and counting with no reply back and that's unacceptable.

    Also, there is a weakness in Sales Tax reporting. It's based on invoices sent and NOT on invoices paid.

    Awesome little invoicing tool!

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    If you're in the market for a simple and streamlined invoicing tool for your small business, Hiveage is the best and most thorough program out there!! We use this not only for billing, but keeping a handle on our businesses checks and balances. We get everything we need in one convenient place and for one low monthly rate. Customer service is always fast and friendly and our customers like the professional look and clear breakdown of what they are purchasing. From all of us at Senchant's Art of Teaching, Thank You Hiveage!!

    Pros

    Ease of creating clear and concise invoices that look professional. Ability to create income and expenses and export for tax purposes. Very inexpensive and great customer support.

    Cons

    Default payment button attached to invoices is sometimes confusing for our clients. We do not have this feature setup and would just prefer the button not be there.

    Does everything we need

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We were wasting a lot of time with our previous system. Hiveage has helped us recoup a lot of wasted time and energy.

    Pros

    Ease of use, customization and customer support. The customer support is excellent, hard to beat.

    Cons

    Expense for our needs. At this time there are many features that we aren't taking advantage of but we're paying for. In the future I foresee us using many more of the features but for now it's mainly a reference resource for our deliveries and customers. If there were a more basic plan that enabled us to utilize more basic features and pay a smaller monthly fee that would be helpful.

    Where is the customer support team?!

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I had high hopes and want to continue using their service and vouch for their service but with the lack of customer service response on issues that affect our usage I can't recommend anyone using this if they rely on this service for their day-to-day operation. Should be as glitch-free as possible and even if there are glitches any customer service help we need should be responded back within a few days max whenever possible. I'm currently waiting at 7 weeks and counting with no reply back and that's unacceptable!

    Pros

    One thing I like about the software is that it has multi-currency invoicing which we need and an app where we can issue quotations and invoices on-the-go. Overall it should suffice for most businesses out there.

    Cons

    The lack of customer service response and also sometimes the platform is glitchy (e.g. you have a product preset and it doesn't pull up when you try add to an invoice, and if you add a new customer during the invoicing stage it doesn't add that new customer details to that invoice after you've entered all the necessary customer details and save those details). These are sporadic issues and becomes...

    Vendor response

    Regarding the custom domain feature mentioned in this review: Hiveage continues to support custom domains, and the experimental feature that was discontinued was SSL support on custom domains (which was not promoted publicly). We were one of the few, if not the only, invoicing software to try this feature, but at the moment we do not have an ETA for re-introducing it. As a policy we refrain from publicly commenting on matters specific to individual customers.

    I was on board after my first invoice

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Hiveage has made my life so much easier. I can just set it and forget it with most of my recurring billing clients. It's definitely worth the $100 a year to me - just in time savings alone. It's so simple to set up for 1 or 100 clients on one-off or recurring billing. Step 1. Add your client's email and details Step 2. Add your own Paypal (or whatever you want) account info Step 3. Make your itemized...

    Pros

    Simple to use and saves me so much time. Very inexpensive. No transaction fees, just my annual fee based on the services I use.

    Cons

    Some functions take a few clicks to get to which could maybe be simplified & an alternate default view for showing which invoices are outstanding would be helpful.

    Perfect lightweight SME invoicing

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I've tried many invoicing apps to support my consulting business accounting, and Hiveage is by far the most useful. When most of your attention is focused on running your business, apps that are either too complex are just as much of a problem as those which don't do everything you need them to. Hiveage strikes the balance I need perfectly, allowing me to breeze through invoicing with minimal effort.

    Pros

    User interface, ease of use, clarity, and reporting.

    Cons

    Could use multilingual invoice templates
