CloudBooks is a cloud-based accounting solution designed to help small businesses and freelancers with billing, invoice creation, project management and time tracking.
CloudBooks tracks where and how users are spending their time to ensure that invoices are accurately generated. Expenses are also tracked in real time and can be added to invoices. For collecting payments, clients can pay with credit cards, PayPal, checks or cash on a recurring or one-time basis.
For teams with multiple contributors, projects can be assigned and progress can be viewed per member or as a whole team. Time tracking and invoice generation can also be viewed jointly or by a single user, and permissions can be restricted on a member-by-member basis. Financial is captured by CloudBooks for profit analysis.
CloudBooks is free for individual freelancers and offers a tiered pricing model for small teams. Support articles are available online, as well as via phone and email.

I have been using this invoice and billing software for some months now and I can say that I am very satisfied. CloudBooks Invoice only charges you if you create more than 5 invoices per month. However, the pricing for more invoices is very reasonable. I managed to sign up in just a few seconds, which surprised me. The subscription to other invoicing applications is often much more time consuming. The dashboard that CloudBooks created is pretty intuitive. You just need to take some minutes to set up an invoice template and you can start invoicing right away.
Pros: Follow up on unpaid bills. It integrates with PayPal and its own products. The software is ready for multiple currencies
Cons: None so far.
