    Invoicing system for freelance writers

    Discussion in 'Publisher Discussion' started by mhc28, Apr 8, 2016.

    Invoicing is something every freelance writer has to do, so I was wondering what online invoicing software are you guys using?

    I don't know about the other freelance writers on this forum, but the only piece I got published came with an acceptance letter and a cheque. So, no, invoicing ISN'T something EVERY freelance writer has to do.

    And, unless you're writing a shed-load of stuff, how much invoicing are you (realistically) going to have to do? Enough to buy some specialist software? Perhaps not.

    I found a form online for freelance invoicing once and used it for a number of acting jobs I did after my agent chickened out and quit (I swear I had nothing to do with it!) I don't remember where I found it, but a quick Google should turn up loads of them. Just pick one that's appropriate for your region/country/whatever.

    Thanks for the replies! I went to do some Google research and decided on using SlickPie. It's a free accounting software and their invoicing is pretty quick and easy. If anyone else is in need of an invoicing software, definitely check it out

    Just used Word and an invoice template. Simple.
