    I need some help getting an invoice software for a mac. I have tried everything I can find ( iRatchet, etc. ) but nothing fits what I need. All I want is basic invoices which are numbered and in which i can add a deposit that was taken in. A basic layout which I can edit and it stays for all invoices would be great. It seems if I cant find anything I would need to use windows because there are tons of programs like that.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated because switching back for this would be horrible.

    I haven't actually tried out this one, but I can't help but smile at a billing program that promises to stun your customers :D

    Thanks but i tried it, its way to complicated for my parter to use and it requires creating projects for customers and then invoicing it seperatly, a stupid process if u ask me.

    I use Filemaker for invoices; you just define the fields and create an invoice template for printing/viewing. Pluses are that Filemaker is very easy to work with and searchable. Downside is that if you change something, it autosaves so you can mess up old invoices (but regular back-ups prevent anything bad from happening). Our solution was to make a new one each week and compile them quarterly; that way they aren't modified that often but are still searchable.

    No problem! If you're looking for a cheaper solution and don't need to be totally current with Filemaker, you can probably find an older version on fleabay. I use 5.5 and it works fine, and I really haven't found anything in the later editions that I need yet (though they definitely are prettier). :)

    Try this one:
    Invoice by KediSoft
    It's very good and very simple though it's beta.

    I'm with epochblue, Billable is cheaper (I haven't bought it yet though) than Billings, really simple to use, and generally really great. I haven't used Billings but it looks a bit too complicated for my use.
