Overall I love Zoho Invoice simply because of how effectively they automate the process of sending invoices and collecting payment. It saves me so much time every month and is worth every penny.
I needed an invoicing system that could send recurring invoices. I was spending too much time every month manually creating invoices, and would often send them out late, which meant I'd get paid late. Of all the options I researched (there were a lot) Zoho had the most features for the lowest price. Set up was easy, and they keep adding new features that are included with my subscription. They even have automatic reminder emails you can have sent to clients who are late in paying. This happens so often in my industry, that this feature has actually helped me collect my payments faster, without me having to spend time trying to get paid.
I also love that as my business grows, Zoho has so many other products that I could add to my Zoho dashboard. I've also noticed that most of the other 3rd party programs I use have options to connect to Zoho.
Their customer support is a bit slow. There's a new feature they've rolled out that I'd like to use, but there's not much documentation about it. I reached out a few days ago for help and still haven't heard back. It would be nice if step by step instructions were easy to find for their new features.

Response from Zoho
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Zoho Invoice.
Managing invoices and payment collection, like you said, can be really stressful and frustrating sometimes. We are glad to know that Zoho Invoice is helping you manage these easily.
Good luck for your business. We're here to support you!
Zoho Invoice provides a full-featured accounting tool for self-employed service professionals who don't need to manage bank accounts or balance sheet assets. If you sell your time or sell (or resell) products you create and don't need an inventory system, Zoho Invoice is nearly perfect.
Practically everything is so well-thought out. Zoho Invoice is everything a self-employed person or entrepreneur needs to manage contacts, quotes, invoices, receivables and expenses. It even has robust support for time billing (projects, tasks, etc.), sales tax, recurring invoices, and even multiple currencies (I just need USD, but the capability is there). Zoho Invoice is the almost perfect accounting tool I need to track income and expenses. When my data is entered and up to date, getting my data to my accountant for income tax prep is as simple as exporting two spreadsheets.
The expense feature set includes the ability to track mileage. This feature is represented well on the iOS app, but in order to enter a mileage record with an odometer reading, the system requires both a beginning value and an ending value at the same time. This really doesn't work. I would have to note my beginning mileage then enter it along with the ending mileage at the end of the business trip. As such, I use a standalone mileage app called MileBug.
Free Invoicing Software For All Kinds Of Small Businesses
Zoho Invoice made it easier for us to generate a sales invoice for our customers online for free and with ease.
It is very much simple to use and offers a feature to edit templates of the invoices as per the requirement and convenience of a user.
Zoho Invoice is only ideal for invoicing and is not possible to conducting company accounting with it which I least like about it.
Response from Zoho
Thanks for the review!
If you are looking for a single tool that can help you run invoicing as well as accounting, we would like to recommend Zoho Books.

Zoho Invoice: great for small businesses
This software is really simple to master and use. The UI is great, navigation is simple and it's easily customizable to meets your needs depending on what you want.
Creating customized invoices that match your brand is so easy that just about anyone can actually use this software.
I also like that the pricing is really affordable
It's not an accounting software. Just for invoices and must be used with CRM. Other than that, I don't see anything bad about this software
Zoho Invoice is great!
We tried many other solutions, but Zoho Invoice is most suitable to us.
We like function Recurring Invoices which save us much time, as we send
few 100 invoices per month. Create a new invoices is quick and easy.
Also, using Reports give us great insight on how our business is doing.
Zoho Invoice really is right decision. We recommend!
- recurring invoices
- invoice/email templates
We have a law that requests that all invoices has to be send to our country (TAX department).
Thats why we cant use Zoho Invoice for cash transactions, only for wire/bank transactions.
I would *really* love if we could somehow connect Zoho Invoice with FURS (http://www.fu.gov.si/en/)
Fast easy flexible and "on the go"
Been using Zhoho invoice for three years, and my accounting on the go, has never been easier. While on public transport I book invoices, and I can keep track of hours I spend on creative work. Expenserecording with image attachment works fine.
A little rough around the edges, refine please
We love using Zoho Invoice because it is extremely easy to use and the customization is wonderful
Zoho Software is incredibly easy to use & has a pleasant UX. Our training period was a fraction of what it could have been, leading to increased productivity throughout all operations. It allows us to communicate much more easily with clients too, so our customer service has also greatly increased in quality.
The only mild inconvenience we experienced was not knowing that Zoho Invoice allows users to save notes for clients and colleagues. Once we learned that, deployment was a much more positive and painless experience.
Making invoices is no longer a problem thanks to Zoho Invoice
One of the most complete software I have known for the management of invoices in my work, has excellent qualities that facilitate the functions at work. I strongly recommend this software to all companies, they will not regret using it
The Zoho network has a number of interesting programs that allow boosting corporate productivity, in the case that brings us up, Zoho Invoice is an excellent tool with fascinating potentials such as the preparation of invoices and budgets in real time, taking all the spatial particularities of the company such as taxes, fees, withholdings, increase or decrease of budget in the activities to be carried out. In addition to this, the software has an artificial intelligence that works like an alert making automatic reports of the current situation allowing to make appropriate decisions.
Our team of professionals have achieved only benefits of this software, we have no complaints or suggestions of this program because it works wonderfully with the current demands of our management
ZOHO makes your life easy!
I have a small online business, and ZOHO makes my life much easier! Someone with no accounting experience and very little admin experience can use this with ease. (yes, I am talking about myself) I can do invoicing and quotations, track inventory, track payments and send review requests with ease. As my business grows, then I can add extra features, so you don't pay what what you don't use/need.
Thank you ZOHO! I have referred you to all my friends, and will keep doing so!
it's easy to use, everything i need is in 1 place
i have had some difficulty customizing the templates, but i figured it out
My favourite invoicing software
I absolutely love it. I would recommend it to everyone.
I love Zoho Invoice - it has everything I need. Scheduling, customer portal, PayPal, Stripe payments. It also integrates nicely with other Zoho software.
I would change the limits. Free tier limits you only to 5 customers.
Great Invoicing Tool Connected to CRM
Zoho Invoice has, along with the other tools in Zoho Suite, done exactly what we've wanted it to do, and the integration with the other tools makes it invaluable to us. Invoicing along with our services (subscription and otherwise) is essential, and we need a trustworthy tool. This is it.
It is a simple tool, able to be connected to subscriptions, CRM, and any other Zoho Suite doc. It keeps our customers informed concerning billing, keeping their contact and payment info up to date, and provides a simple and convenient way to adjust everything.
This software has worked great for us. I will update if any further problems come along, but not so far.
Response from Zoho
Thanks a ton for the review!

More Than A Invoicing Software
Makes life so easy!
I absolutely love using Zoho for my small business. I love that I can so easily manage my business on the go using the app, and I can raise an invoice or send a receipt in seconds. I find Zoho easy to navigate and understand, and at tax time I found it so easy to compile all of the reports that I needed for my accountant. Zoho definitely meets all of my needs and I have already recommended it to other small business colleagues!
Easy to navigate, can use it on the go with the app, meets all of my needs
We love ZOHO Invoice
It's been more than 2 years and continue... We at iNFOTYKE, loving it. No matter I am in a meeting or travelling - I can quickly send estimates, invoices or pending receiving notes.
Thank You Zoho. I love your iOS app with nice interface / UI.
and.... I WILL CONTINUE USE.
Easy to handle
Graphs on iOS app
(I am using iPhone 5S)
Zoho far, Zoho good!
I've been using Zoho for a few years and it's made my online business a thousand times easier and more efficient! Well done on a great product.
It's got a great interface and is really easy to use. I can keep track of any job at the touch of a button.
Quick, Easy Invoices
I use Zoho Invoice for my personal business. As a sole proprietor, Zoho is all I need and simplifies the invoicing process for me. I conduct business in both the US and Canada, so the ability to send invoices in different languages is a life saver. Also really like how I can use different templates for different customers. Very happy overall and would recommend to any other sole proprietors!
The variety of invoice templates that Zoho gives you, different language options for the invoices, and tools to set up automatic and recurring invoices.
There weren't any negative features that stood out to me--simple to use and learn. One could argue that it doesn't come with an extraordinary number of features, but Zoho offers other software for that.
Totally life changing and amazing
So many benefits, so few detriments. It's everything you'd want in an Invoicing/accounting system, without all of the steep learning curves that come with Quickbooks!!!
I love being able to create Estimates and then turn them into Invoices. I also love the layout and design. It works perfectly and is easily customizable.
You can't organize the columns by Status! There does not seem to be a way to access the emails that were sent to customers along with their Estimates and Invoices (but maybe I just can't figure out how to find them?!
It always works
it has paid for itself over and over for the times it was so simple and fast to just add a billable hour, that I would have otherwise forgotten to bill.
Simple, fast, works on every smartphone and type of computer. Paypal payments, integration with the web site for customer portal.
can't change the name of something after they are invoiced, for example, if the project was called "IT Consulting" and is now tied to one customer, it is hard to find later in a list of all projects. If it could be renamed to "Big Client IT Consulting" that would solve issue
I use Zoho and think it is a wonderful system. The functionality along with the ease of use make it essential for my business. The app is amazing and allows me to get work done on the fly.
Ease of use, ability to add items on the fly
no sales history per customer/per invoice, ability to search items via description while in invoice/estimate
Best tool for International invoicing
The most important feature which I like is the branding ,you can put your own logo and customize invoices accordingly. Second most important feature which I like is integration with stripe and Paypal . We charge our international customer suing stripe and paypal and we just need to click button to send invoices along with link.
Not suited for low speed internet connections .
It was decent, not horrible but not impressed either.
Invoices looked professional.
Once set up it seemed to function fine on its own without to much maintenance. Customer service was good it was just hard to schedule a time due to the schedule of a small business owner.
It didn't interact or speak to our particular client program (Jobber). It would have been much better if they would speak to one another.
