Invoicing Clients

Hi,

Can anyone advise of a good invoicing / payment system that i can setup on my website.

I often get calls from my clients asking me to make changes to their website. Some of these changes are minor changes whereas some of them can take a full day, or up to a week to implement.

I often find myself chasing my clients for payment AFTER the work has been completed.

I'd like to implement a system whereby i can raise an electronic invoice and then explain to the client that i work from an order list, which is based on paid invoices.

I implemented a similar system for a client before using - https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/wp-invoice - however it seems over complicated and bloated, and all payments need to be made through PayPal.

I'd rather use a credit card system using Stripe etc.

Any advice greatly appreciated, thank you.

I can propose you freshbooks.

Of course it's a payed service but it handles invoicing, expenses and time tracking.

Harvest.  

But at the end of the day, if you are not asking for a retainer before doing the work you are going to chase down clients no matter what.  No software can fix your process, only you can do that.

Thanks all, i'll check those app out.

@Jason - the reason i want to use the software is to put a system in place whereby i only start the work when payment is received. In other words i'll be using my 'Invoice Paid' list as my work / task list.
