Blinksale – Simple Invoicing Tools

Blinksale is a professional-level billing solution with incredibly straightforward tools for sending invoices and collecting on payments. Developed for businesses that need to invoice clients for products sold or services rendered, Blinksale is used by thousands of attorneys, accountants, designers, developers, journalists, contractors, and engineers.

Before starting on a new client project, use Blinksale to create an estimate. Follow Blinksale’s step-by-step instructions to generate an estimate that includes the anticipated cost and the scope of work, and wait for your client to approve, decline, or add comments to the estimate before your job begins. Approved estimates can be converted into invoices, and you can send those invoices via integrated email or as a PDF. For clients who receive recurring invoices, Blinksale is capable of handling automated billing, as well. The web-based platform will also remind you to send thank you notes when you’ve received payments from clients.

Connecting Stripe to your Blinksale account allows you to collect on invoices online. Your clients can pay by credit card, and the funds are deposited into your checking account by Stripe. For small business owners who are looking for an unlimited invoicing solution, Blinksale is a straightforward platform that’s worth checking out.
