Pros

My over all experience with PayPal invoicing has been great. I have not had any issues at all my customers like it too.
Overall, I would recommend this software. PayPal invoicing is great for beginners and super easy to figure out.
Our clients enjoy paying with ease and we have never had an issue in the past with PayPal. Customer service has also been great in answering any questions we have.

Pros

Overall, Clientary is a great choice to manage customer relationships effectively, with features that help them stay organized, track progress and automate tasks.
My experience with this software is quite good. It helps me to generate all my invoices and also helps me to track them accurately so that my organisation gets the payments on time.
It was so easy to manage and navigate. I've been able to easily create invoices with good quality with my clients having easy access to it.

Cons

If PayPal suspects any type of fraudulent activity going on, they freeze your payment, which can be frustrating because it’s usually something small that I didn’t fill out or made a mistake about.
But sometime paypal hold your payment for more than 7 days which i think is bad thing about paypal invoicing.
They could cancel your account with no explanation.

Cons

I use to stress about invoicing; it was the worst part of running my own business.
There is no con as such, just a little time in setting up the account.
The limited staff users per plan could have been expanded as the plan went up, but it's understandable as a small team can see how everything else is going on.

Reviewed 9 months ago

An excellent and effective solution tailored for robust time tracking and estimates. Ease of usability and implementation. Rich capability on cloud payment processing and online invoices generation as well as invoicing to hasten payments. It ensures all clients are satisfied.

Pros

Impressive dashboard to enhance subscription billing, proposals generation, online invoices creation and time tracking capabilities. It's a self-explanatory and multi-purposed software since it meets numerous business needs under just one umbrella and with effectiveness.

Cons

Honestly nothing to complain because it has been of great impact especially on customers management and fastening online payment via invoicing.

Simple & Efficient Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We’ve really enjoyed using Clientary and rely on it daily. We generate quotes, keep track of all of our leads and clients, send out invoices and produce monthly reports to measure how our business is doing.

Pros

We love how easy it is to use Clientary and how quickly one can become proficient with it. It’s a great tool for small businesses and can do as much or as little as you need it to.

Cons

I would love to see a few things switched up in the quoting & invoicing as they relate to active & past projects, but it doesn’t prevent me from using the software

So simple that you actually use it!

It's brilliant! Simplicity wins the day here.

Pros

I tried other invoicing apps and they are all so complicated! Clientary maybe doesn't have all the fancy features of some, but what it has is done in a super simple and usable way! There is no learning curve!

Cons

So far, almost nothing bad. I did have a problem making my odd shaped logo look good at first, until I realised it was my fault for using the print resolution version!

Useful product by Clientary

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

With this software, keeping track of leads and proposals is a breeze. Better than other similar tools, it streamlines the billing and invoicing process. This program makes project and task management simple. This one is a breeze to use as a client or employee management tool.

Cons

The font size on the dashboard is too small for me to read comfortably, and several places in the user interface take many clicks to access.

Easy solution for small business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I use to stress about invoicing; it was the worst part of running my own business. I was doing all of this work and then not getting paid for it because I failed to invoice on time. With clientary, I start invoices on the same day that the work is done and send out on the 1st. It completely changed my life.

Pros

I've been using this product for 9 years (since Dec 2013) to bill all of our customers. It's very easy to set up, reliable, and has good customer support. I've set quite a few other small business owners up on this software as well. Everyone loves it.

Cons

Ctrl + clicking on links does not open them in a new tab. This is rather annoying when I want to open a half dozen invoices in new tabs. I have to actually right click > open in new tab. Not ideal on a laptop when you don't have a mouse.

Microenterprise-friendly; Saves time, effort, and money for microentrepreneurs

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am able to save time and can allot more time to think on other aspects of my microenterprise thanks to Clientary. I don't have to think of ways to make my proposals pop up, and I love how clients can simply sign documents digitally and we can get working on providing services as soon as possible.

Pros

As a microentrepreneur, I am in-charge of everything in my microenterprise - sales, operations, finances, and everything in between. I don't have the luxury of time in creating and designing forms both online and offline for my services, but Clientary offers me the option to do proposals online, and if they like it, invoicing can follow quickly. It being a web app with no downloads required is also great as it does not require clients to download anything else. Very simple; very effective.

Cons

The limited staff users per plan could have been expanded as the plan went up, but it's understandable as a small team can see how everything else is going on. But I wish the Team Plan had more than 3 staff users able to use.

Clientary Software increased my efficiency as a product manager!

Reviewed 9 months ago

But Clientary has been really helpful in solving this challenge; it has made my job easier. I can now organize my clients' projects effectively using the client management feautures ranging from proposal management, time tracking, Invoice management likewise, effective payment management. Hence, I have been able to satisfy my clients better with more efficiency since I started using Clientary software.

Pros

The invoicing and estimation feature Clientary is very creative and easy to use. Without Hassel or having to do it manually, i can create and send professional invoices and estimates for my clients. Also, with Clientary I can now create, customize and send proposals to my clients. This reduces the time I spend per project, hence increasing my efficiency in multiple fold. I will like to state that Clientary is perfect for remote workers, and it can be accessed at anytime and anywhere with an internet connection as Clientary is a cloud based software.

Cons

I haven't encountered any negativity so far.

Clientary

Viable CRM tool for overseeing client data and effectively creating solicitations 

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

It may be a useful and accommodating device that helps with the administration of CRM and extend data. It streamlines the charging and invoicing strategy more than other innovations of a comparable nature. Extend and errand administration is made less demanding with this program. With Clientary's computerized signature work, archives are more secure and more reliable. Workflow is encouraged, and time and exertion are spared. We are able to screen everything in genuine time, be there at all times, and appraise distinctive stages based on our proposed methodology much appreciated by Clientary. 

Cons

There are, in my conclusion, a number of alteration choices when it comes to envisioning client data. Indeed on the off chance that it doesn't happen regularly, some of the time it might take as well long for bills to be issued. The involvement of utilizing Clientary on a desktop computer contrasts incredibly with that on a portable gadget. Choices to produce gauges for prospects who are still exterior of the normal preparation are still missing.
