    We are currently using google checkout to handle our recursive billing (hosting and monthly payments towards site-build fee) for our clients. This has become a PITA. Manually emailing invoices, processing them, and tracking each step of the way has become time prohibitive.

    What do you guys use?

    I'm looking at FirstEdge/AccountEdge from Acclivity (formerly MYOB). Do any of you fine folks use either of these products, know of them (pros/cons), or have alternatives?

    Thanks!!!:)

    I use freshbooks for one of my businesses. And I use modernbill for recurring hosting.

    Really liking the looks/functionality of Billings. How do you handle payment processing?

    I put in another vote for Billings. Have been using it a while :)

    Here's a useful review on Billings 3.

    Try the demo out and see what you think. There's also an iPhone app for when you're working away from your main machine. Syncs up very well.

    Another Billings user here. It's missing some features I'd like to see, but it's the best of the apps I've tried and I've been happy using it for over 3 years now.

    I finish the project/slips and the price in the project section turns blue to click. You then create a invoice to where you can print/email/save. This places you on the "account" side and you can add payments delete and restore slips etc.

    I love it. You can also create/customize your own invoice/statement templates. I also use the iphone app and works great on the go. Only issue I have is the iphone app doesn't sync your custom made invoices and only has 3 default ones from the main application. Other than that it's a great pair!

    Thanks for the input!

    Billings looks rad. I'm looking for a little more of a management system where I can manage billing, banking, and credit card processing all in one.

    FirstEdge has an integrated solution but the monthly fees and transaction fees seem a little steep. I'm still looking.

    Thanks again for the help guys!! :D

    I use dolibarr. Its more than a billing software a complete erp/crm solution that fits in my needs. Give it a toss.
