Streamline your invoicing

Maybe you’ve heard that good invoicing takes time and precision. Well that’s true, but what if ZipBooks could take its time and be precise for you? Take advantage of this online invoice generator we’ve created and get your money faster. It’s so simple. Sign up, track your projects and hours in ZipBooks, and when it comes time to bill a client, fill out our simple and clear invoice template. You can send it straight to a client’s inbox, and even opt to send it from your phone while you’re still meeting with them. The classic roadblock between billing and payment is an excuse. Don’t give any of your clients a reason not to pay you. Include the details of the competed project right in the body of the invoice. You can even include which team members worked on which task and what rate they need to be paid at. And when a client opens a ZipBooks invoice, they will have the option to pay right from the email. Adopt these invoicing musts by signing up for ZipBooks today.

Sending online invoices with ZipBooks accelerates payment by 17.5 days on average.

Collect payments from any device

Sometimes accounting software only works from certain operating systems or devices. Luckily, ZipBooks works anywhere. Sign into your account from a phone, desktop, laptop, or mobile device anytime, anywhere. We’ll keep everything organized for you in the cloud. You can then spend the bulk of your time doing work rather than keeping track of it. Don’t chase your business around; let your business chase you as you get connected with our online services. Use our commercial invoice template to send and receive payment via email, and select which kinds of payment you will and won’t receive. Then keep an eye on your cash flows by viewing graphs on the homepage that chart things like billings and collections, AR, and LTM revenue. Stay current, stay connected, and stay competitive with ZipBooks cloud-based accounting.
