One of the best softwares to keep your accounting books in check, even for starters and freelancers.

2018-01-09

Invoicing, making recurring payments and send payment reminders easily.

Pros

All the features it provides on a free service. It allows you to make invoices, make them recurrent, keep track of your expenses, taxes, make payment portals for your clients, and so much more.

Cons

If you need an extra user (say you are starting a small company with an associate) you need to pay for him. But that is not even a bad thing.

Zoho Invoice is great!

2016-11-25

We like function Recurring Invoices which save us much time, as we send few 100 invoices per month.

Pros

- recurring invoices - invoice/email templates - reports - reminders

Cons

We have a law that requests that all invoices has to be send to our country (TAX department). Thats why we cant use Zoho Invoice for cash transactions, only for wire/bank transactions. I would *really* love if we could somehow connect Zoho Invoice with FURS (http://www.fu.gov.si/en/)

Zoho Invoice has been a lifesaver and worth every penny!

2018-07-16

Zoho Invoice has made invoicing clients much easier to do and to track.

Pros

It is especially helpful that customers can pay through the link in the invoice and it will even post the payment against the invoice for you. The recurring invoices are very helpful too.

Cons

My only wish is that I could create a recurring invoice with a recurring payment that will automatically charge the client's credit card.

Ten year happy customer

2018-08-10

Pros

Recurring invoices are a life saver.

Cons

The cross promotion of other Zoho offerings is mildly annoying. I don't care about those services, I only need invoicing. However, it's not very intrusive.

Flawless, easy to use, full-featured

2017-06-02

Recurring billing, ease of changing and billing, great reporting, integration to other Zoho products.

Pros

Zoho makes it easy to import from other systems. The application offers flexibility and extensive features without compromising simplicity of use.

Cons

In over a year, we've yet to run into something we do not like. It's a struggle to find a complaint-this is obviously a mature application.

Cheap and Simple with powerful integration

2019-03-27

Moved away from OpenERP due to comlpexity for my small business and the recurring invoicing works great, helped me solved lots of issues.

Pros

For the last 4 years, I've been using Zoho for my small business and it has been a really good decision, is very simple and recurring invoicing works perfectly.

Cons

Coming from open source apps I miss the endless customization options I have, even simple layout changes to the invoice are really hard or impossible to do, but its really cheap so I can't complain.

Quick, Easy Invoices

2019-02-02

I use Zoho Invoice for my personal business. As a sole proprietor, Zoho is all I need and simplifies the invoicing process for me. I conduct business in both the US and Canada, so the ability to send invoices in different languages is a life saver. Also really like how I can use different templates for different customers. Very happy overall and would recommend to any other sole proprietors!

Pros

The variety of invoice templates that Zoho gives you, different language options for the invoices, and tools to set up automatic and recurring invoices.

Cons

There weren't any negative features that stood out to me--simple to use and learn. One could argue that it doesn't come with an extraordinary number of features, but Zoho offers other software for that.

Invoicing for FREE

2019-04-11

Pros

For simple recurring monthly invoices Zoho invoices provides a great free service in which it enables me to send monthly invoices at no charge.

Cons

That the user interface is not as friendly as some other products on the market like freshbooks. But who can complain when it is for free!

A nice invoicing tool, but not worth paying for

2019-01-19

I use Zoho for 5 of my clients and am unwilling to upgrade to the paid version. I still create Microsoft Word-based invoices manually for any additional clients.

Pros

I am a small business owner with only a handful of clients and having a small list of clients with all the billing and tax information all easily figured into my invoices is handy to have for recurring items.

Cons

I did not like the divide between the free version of the software and the paid version, as you are allowed to have 5 clients for free and then additional clients jump you to the (what I think is) a price that is too high for a small business. The trouble Zoho Invoice saves would be minimal compared to the amount of work it saves.

Bare essentials, not as feature rich

2018-02-27

Pros

There is an Autopay feature which is perfect for recurring invoices.

Cons

Not very feature rich, I found it to be lacking in essential features that I found in other invoicing software, such as applying late fees automatically to invoices.

Zoho Invoice Is A Convenient Way To Invoice Customers Digitally

2019-04-18

I will be using Zoho Invoice for many years in the future. It's a great interface that store and records all the payments, contacts, addresses, and payment methods of customers. Once you create the first invoice, its very easy to create another one and send them out to customers. Tracking which customers were sent which invoices and on which dates is very accurate when you use Zoho Invoice.

Pros

Repeated payments are simple and you can setup and track recurring payments automatically as well.

Cons

If you are in a hurry to get the payment with the customer on the phone it's not as fast as it might be because you have to add a contact first. The other issue is that the customization options and flexibility of the invoice designs and invoice options themselves is somewhat limited.

Zoho makes tracking payments easy!

2018-11-07

Pros

I have been using Zoho Invoice for about 6 months now, after switching from a competitor due to the great functions that Zoho offers such as recurring invoices.

Cons

It takes a little while to set-up an invoice on Zoho, but it's still quicker than sending an invoice manually!

Zoho Invoice provides a full-featured accounting tool for self-employed service professionals who don't need to manage bank accounts or balance sheet assets. If you sell your time or sell (or resell) products you create and don't need an inventory system, Zoho Invoice is nearly perfect.

Pros

.), sales tax, recurring invoices, and even multiple currencies (I just need USD, but the capability is there).

Cons

The expense feature set includes the ability to track mileage. This feature is represented well on the iOS app, but in order to enter a mileage record with an odometer reading, the system requires both a beginning value and an ending value at the same time. This really doesn't work. I would have to note my beginning mileage then enter it along with the ending mileage at the end of the business trip. As such, I use a standalone mileage app called MileBug.

Perfect for freelancers!

2018-12-08

Pros

With Zoho, sending recurring invoices is right in the free plan.

Cons

As with all Zoho services, support leaves a lot to be desired. The systems are easy to learn, so it works out okay, but do expect that if you need help, you'll be waiting awhile. My emails to support get answered weeks later with "Sorry, this went to the wrong support box" or something similar. Some never get answered at all. Again, the Zoho products are super user-friendly, so this isn't so much of a con as more of an advance notice that you'll be mostly on your own to figure things out, but it's possible.

Zoho is a great invoicing tool for small businesses

2018-05-19

Pros

You can create draft invoices, recurring invoices and others all with a few clicks, the email template is also great as you do not have to write emails. 4) Customer Statements are invaluable.

Cons

1) Zoho Invoice does not have a feature that allows you to know when a client has seen an email about a payment. This means you may not know if a client has seen your email unless they acknowledge it. 2) My continued gripe with Zoho mobile apps for Android still rings true. While the mobile app has the basic functions of the web interface, compared to iOS, the Android app just does not function as well. 3) The Client Portal does not offer much functionality to a client other than to check their statements, the process of communication has to be started by you to give an estimate and so on. If there was a way to allow a client to also initiate communication from the portal, it would be better.
