If you’re running a business that requires a number of clients to make recurring payments, it’s counter-productive to have to send an invoice out yourself or hire someone to send an invoice to each client every single payment period. But where can you find an automated billing platform for you to just schedule recurring invoices to clients and focus on running your company?
Everyone knows at least one invoicing platform. PayPal’s got one that we covered in a recent article. But are there others that allow you to set up recurring payments in a way that’s professional and personalized to show your company’s image?
Here are a few services that do just that:
- Billtrust - When you’re looking to make a good series of B2B and B2C invoices, Billtrust is there for you. It includes the necessary platform to invoice any entity you want and easily schedule recurring payments. You need to contact Billtrust for pricing and available programs.
- SnapBill – With report generation, recurring payment billing, and easy help systems integrated into the platform, SnapBill is the holy grail for those who are just starting to use SaaS platforms. This billing application also allows you to personalize your invoices to make them look more official and gain more trust from your paying customers and partners. With packages starting at $35/mo with no set up fee, this is certainly a professional and affordable option.
- FreshBooks – If you’re looking for a freebie, FreshBooks has a great offer with one easy payment of $0. For up to three clients, you get to hitch a free ride on the FreshBooks train and send recurring invoices indefinitely, or up to a certain amount. Let’s say that you want to charge a client with 6 monthly payments. You can set up a recurring payment of “x” amount of dollars monthly, and configure it to cut off after 6 months. For more clients, you must enter a paid plan.
All three services are outstanding, but only one of them will give you the most comfort. Try each one out! Billtrust has a demo, SnapBill has a 14-day free period, and FreshBooks lets you use its product indefinitely for free for up to three clients. Go ahead and check ‘em out!
