PROS / You can customize every element of the template, including color scheme, font and layout.
CONS / This software does not notify customers when they are past due, requiring you to send manual past-due notifications.
VERDICT / Invoice2go is a good choice if you need simple and easy-to-use invoicing software without additional functions.
Invoice2go is a simplistic yet efficient billing and invoice service. It is an online program, so there is no need to download anything, and you can log in to your company account from any computer. The entire process, from setting up the company to sending out invoices, is completely intuitive. This easy invoice software does not have some of the convenient features that other services offer, but its features for simple invoicing are solid.
When initially setting up your account, you can enter your company information, upload a logo and choose a basic template theme, which can all be edited later. When it comes to editing and personalizing invoices, you will find few programs better than Invoice2go. You can edit every line on the invoice, adjust its placement, choose from over 40 fonts, 20 colors and 50 background images. If you do not have a company logo, you can create and customize your own using generic clip art images.
That process is very intuitive, as is the rest of the program. When creating an invoice, you simply click on the field you wish to edit and select from saved customer or item information or add them new. When you add new customers and items when creating invoices, the software does not save that information, which is a downside to its simplicity. If you plan to reuse customer information or items, you will want to add them to your customers or items list.
When you are ready to send the invoice, you can customize the subject and email text at that point, or you can create a generic email message in the settings that automatically populates when creating an email. You also add a recurring courtesy copy or blind courtesy copy email in the settings, which is an option no other service we reviewed offers. Setting up your email only requires you to enter your email address; you do not need to specify a server or port, as you do with some other services.
After receiving payment, you can apply it to the customer's account. The software shows which accounts are overdue, and you can set the program to automatically send out email notifications to your customers like some software does. This means you must keep an eye on accounts that become past due. You can generate customer-aging reports to show when customers are overdue. There are also reports for sales, payments, and profit and loss.
If you have questions, you can find a FAQs page and knowledgebase, which you can search by keyword or by topic. Customer service is available via an email request or by live chat, which we used to ask a question and received a prompt answer from a friendly representative. This service does not provide support over the phone.
Invoice2go does what it offers – invoicing – well. The platform is very intuitive, from setting up your company through applying payment. Few invoicing programs offer such customizable invoices to reflect your company's personality, which is important for companies wishing to make a good aesthetic impression. It lacks some features of the best invoicing software, such as sending out automatic overdue notifications, but for simple invoicing, it is a good choice.
