Comments: I tried this software as a solution for my business accounting issues and it did not disappoint. The software was user-friendly and provided a place to store all my created invoices. Creating each invoice took very little time and I could personalize with my business logo to make each invoice look extremely professional. It is a useful addition to the software needed to smoothly run my business.

Pros: Easy to use. Storage options. Invoices can be personalised for your business.

Cons: Didn't really find any.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try, for a small business such as my own it was very useful.

Comments: I liked the invoicing and accounting module. Clean and simple invoicing templates are treat to use. The best part they do not ask you to configure your account, you create your first invoice and your preferences would be configured in the process.

Pros: Auto configuration of preferences, easy integration with PayPal, variety of invoicing templates

Cons: The leads management module can be enhanced with more integration

Recommendations to other buyers: do your own research :-)

Comments: Great program. I just need to do the things that I have to do any which way i.e., create invoices and key in my expenses but I spend much lesser time now. It also saves me time in book-keeping because most of the stuff would auto populate, I have the reports I need, pretty smooth.

Pros: The ease, I like the way the roll-up things in right heads, easy to understand, like all these modules i.e., the invoicing manager, payments tracking, expense manager.

Cons: Not enough documentation of FAQs.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's easy to use and the basic packages @ just $ 12.5 would be good for any small business.

Comments: Great program, has all the features I need and is not complex like the other software. The $12.5 plan is really cool, has no hidden terms and conditions, I can created unlimited invoices. I can do away all those ads pop-ups that come with free software in the same invoicing accounting space at paltry $12.5/Month, still can't believe! Great work TopNotepad Team!

Pros: Can't ask for more at the price point, in fact they are giving much much more than the competition.

Comments: I have tried many online invoicing and accounting software but there was always something or the other that would not seem right. A few were complex, some of them were not affordable and a few others had very limited features. I was looking for something which has it all, is simple and very affordable. My search ended when I came across TopNotepad! Absolutely simple program for invoicing, logging expenses, tracking unpaid invoices and book-keeping.

Pros: Many features. Straight forward program. Took less than 2 minute to create my first invoice on TopNotepad. Unlimited invoicing even in the most basic paid plan.

Recommendations to other buyers: They have an option to 'try before you buy', use it. I am a marketing consultant, I love TopNotepad. If you are a freelancer or running a small business, chances are high you will like it.

Comments: TopNotepad is a no-nonsense software. It feels like your natural extension, it shows you what you want to see and would seek minimum information. Example: you need not have email of a client to bill a client, just name is good. A few softwares I used, have email as compulsory field. Another example, in real world, a lot of times invoices are not paid in full in just one payment, it let's you log partial payments.I use all the other features as well, like logging my expenses, managing leads and tracking my books. The experience has been great so far.

Pros: Very very user friendly. Even the least technical person can use it without any help. The in application tutorial are great step-by-step guide. You can play as many times.

Recommendations to other buyers: Advice: Do not think twice, just go for TopNotepad, they are good. The paid plans are very affordable, And there is no capping on number of invoices you create.

Comments: The only reason I promoted myself to online invoicing is because of TopNotepad. I used to bill my clients using a word template and it was a nightmare to search for archived invoices and track payments. TopNotepad is a solution for not just the problems I stated but also a solution for many more aspects of book keeping, which I could never come to terms with earlier. Now I am not only using this simple tool for invoicing but also log all my expenses on a daily basis and am in complete control of my finances.

Pros: As my title clearly says, it is super simple to use - Filter options let us pull any invoice, expense item in just few clicks - A click of a button and you can download the entire data in simple to understand, neat and well structured excel sheets

Cons: Can't thing of any, seriously. Nope, still can't.

Recommendations to other buyers: I can only speak about consultants, so, if you are in consulting, of any type, I'm an estate consultant, TopNotepad is for you.

Comments: Have been using this product for like 4 months now. It very simple to use, the interface is clean with absolutely no clutter. I mostly use it for estimates, invoicing and logging my expenses, it takes literally less than 15 minutes a day to do all my invoices and log all my expenses. Did not use their leads management module yet, while it is available to me under the same subscription.

Pros: - Uncomplicated interface - Gives options to choose from various invoicing templates - Convert an estimate into invoice in one click

Cons: Need more integrations, they just have PayPal and I use both PayPal and Stripes, please include stripes as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: A nice tool and affordable tool for freelancers like me. If one uses the software, will like it for sure.

Comments: TopNotepad is like a mini ERP system. I get all my things at one place, be it clients, invoices, payments, expenses. The ¿leads management¿ module is a rare feature in any invoicing and accounting solution but TopNotepad has that as well. I log all my leads, set follow-up reminders and create the invoices for the converted leads in just few clicks. I have recommended TopNotepad to almost everyone in my circle...!
