Online Client Billing Made Awesome by GreenerBilling


One of the things that entrepreneurs don’t like is sending out bills. Whether it makes you feel greedy, like an asshole for trying to get paid, or just bad for charging what you’re charging, it’s usually not fun. However, on the other end of it, getting paid is great. The catch is this: without invoicing a client or customer, you can’t get paid.

Now, we look for a solution. Enter – You’ve seen them advertising here on Dorm Room Biz for the past couple months. They have recently released an updated website and features, so now it’s time to share more about their service with you all.’s main philosophy is to meet the needs of an accountant but from the eyes of an entrepreneur. The site and service are built that way, focusing on what fits your needs as an entrepreneur when you need to bill someone. allows you to:

  • Create Estimates & Invoices
  • Track Your Payments
  • Schedule Automatic Invoices
  • Manage Client Profiles
  • Allow Unlimited Users
  • Customize All Settings.

Now, I know many of you have probably tried services like FreshBooks and all the similar ones, I know I have, but I have to say that I like the best and am extremely happy to have come across it.

With the release of their consumption based plan, they are even more affordable to use then some of the other services. This pay as you go model allows you to sign up for free, get a couple free invoices sent to test the system, and then pay just $0.50 for additional invoices.  You can also manage an unlimited number of clients within “Dirt” plan…as in Dirt Cheap. Get it? If you find yourself needing more flexibility, sending more invoices, and really utilizing the service, then upgrading to the Seedling plan for $15.00 is definitely worth it. Many other services start at that price for just the beginner package!!!


Even More Features To Come

Over the rest of the year, there are another 20+ updates and additions to GreenerBilling to come. Here are just 5 of those to wet your whistle.

  • Message Center – This will allow you to customize all of your message templates to fit your business, logo, and colors.
  • Statements – Lets users send statements to their clients showing a summary of their previous invoices, what’s paid and what’s due, etc. A great benefit on the side of the client to see an outline of what’s been paid and what’s owed.
  • Client Access – this is what I’m most excited for. This will allow your clients to access their account online, see their invoices, see any estimates, or bills that need to be paid, and even PAY THEM ONLINE. On top of that, if your client uses more than one provider that utilizes GreenerBilling, then they can see all of their invoices (from multiple suppliers) in one portal area. Sounds pretty cool huh?
  • Time and Mileage Tracking – Sure you can invoice your clients for 5 hours of work at a rate of $50 but why not have that be more precise to 5.15 hours rather than your rough estimate? With this feature you’ll be able to utilize a time clock type feature for accurate billing. Plus, you’ll be able to easily invoice your clients for mileage traveled.
  • Data Export to QuickBooks – While GreenerBilling will handle your online and on the go billing needs, maybe small businesses still use QuickBooks or similar software to take care of the rest of their accounting needs. Soon, you’ll be able to export directly from the GreenerBilling website and into QuickBooks to have everything synchronized.

GreenerBilling is utilized by subscribers in over 50 countries and 45 industries. Are you ready to get on board?

    Nice post! I’m definately going to look into this a bit more. I love the business model that they use (Free trial, pay as you go, then different levels) – seems like that could work well for them and other online businesses. I like the features that you posted and looking forward to the other 15 that are in development.

    I think some of the features mentioned here are already provided by other online invoicing applications. I don’t see any differentiating factor here. I believe Invoicera and some other applications are way ahead.

    Christopher Ray is right. There are many invoicing applications “out there”. And since they all produce invoices, chances are they will have overlapping features.

    I would imagine that just about EVERY invoicing application resembles Freshbooks in some way. They are a great example of what all SaaS applications can and should be aiming to achieve. (Hooray, Mike McD for making the cover of Entrepreneur!)

    There are also many shoe stores out there, many grocers, barbers, car dealerships, etc. We have the luxury of being able to select the best fit, best price, and best quality from among all the providers of goods and services. Each provider offers something a bit different, perhaps a little more unique, better valued, or more responsive to a particular niche market.

    That’s what makes the capitalistic system of business such an envied commodity. Everyone is welcome to participate.

    Sure, Greenerbilling has some of the same features as other invoicing programs. But they also do a few things differently. I like it that way. It works for me – and probably a bunch more.

    There certainly is plenty of room in the great big “cloud”.

    – Justin
