    "Not impressed"

    March 11, 2013  |   By Humbug66

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.70

    Pros

    Does a reasonable job but had a number of annoying bugs

    Cons

    they sting you with the version updates, even the minor ones!

    Summary

    Bought the license for this software 6 months aqo for around $69, downloaded a routine minor update from 3.6x to 3.7x (just bug fixes - no new features), a message came up after update saying my license wasn't valid for the new version and that I would need to purchase an upgraded license. The support page states that if you are not happy with that you can always revert to the older version you originally paid for - assuming you had backed it up - as they don't offer a download link to any older version. Really this is a very shoddy way to treat paying customers - charging for bug fixes 6 months after purchase.

    "Not Free Software, Expires"

    February 14, 2013  |   By sking78

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.70

    Pros

    Seemed to work well. My wife used it for her sewing business. (Sole proprietor.)

    Cons

    Before downloading the NCH web page stated that the express version was free for businesses with fewer than 5 employees. Not so, expired after 14 days. (Checked to see what the full version costs and found out it is $69, wonder when that one expires?) I am now in the doghouse for setting her up with software from a less than reputable company and she can't create invoices until I find something new. (Not a good move on Valentines day!)

    Summary

    Warning, don't download this product, not as advertised...

    "These are a bunch of con artists & chislers"

    November 3, 2012  |   By runninlad

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.60

    Pros

    When it worked 1 & only 1 time it was OK.

    Cons

    I got their trial version and when it expired I bought the same software through Amazon. It worked the 1st time then wouldn't work unless I put in a code. After several emails they asked for the receipt from Amazon which I sent. They then changed their minds and said I'd have to get it from the vendor. Amazon said they did have a code but have offered me a full refund including shipping. They are paying for these crooks in essence.
    The people who review software don't get to review what the customer service is like, perhaps they should do so anonomously.

    Summary

    Avoid this company like the plague.

    "Deceitful marketing, decent product"

    October 22, 2012  |   By dgabriel@gabrielpc.com

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.60

    Pros

    It pretty much just works, is relatively simple.

    Cons

    Not "Free" until you try to uninstall the Pro version, after it magically expires. No indication of what the reduced functionality is, or why you should pay $99 for the full version, I'd happily pay, if it was completely clear what I was paying for.

    Summary

    It works, and if you don't have huge invoicing needs I'd say go for it. Otherwise look at Quickbooks online or something more legitimate and powerful.

    "Great program, terrible company"

    September 24, 2012  |   By PirateTrav

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.60

    Pros

    Easy to use, simple but full featured.

    Cons

    Unethical marketing practices

    Summary

    Although CNET shows it's a 14 day trial and $99 to buy, you won't find any of that on the vendors website. They claim it's free, and aside from the fact that there's the option to buy it, there's NOTHING that states what the free version limitations or time limit is (they don't say it's a trial, so you don't know it's one until it warns you it's going to expire in a couple days). After the trial shuts you out, if you uninstall some have said that there is an option to downgrade to a free, limited version. What the limits are is impossible to determine without actually doing it. I went ahead and paid for it, and it's still prompting me to install ask.com toolbars and download other trial software they make sometimes when I exit (in addition to already installing some trial inventory and CD burning software I didn't authorize).

    As far as the program functionality, it worked perfectly for my needs. It's fairly light, but saves customer info, has basic reporting etc. I haven't had to upgrade or do a reinstall yet, but from the licensing terms it looks like it's pretty easy to end up having to pay for it again. If another software does what you need, I would use it instead. I tried several other free programs, and it became more costly to dig through them than to just buy this and move on, so I did. But I'm very unhappy with how they treat their customers, both before and after purchasing the paid version.

    "If there were a 0 rating it would get it"

    August 16, 2012  |   By soberspeedbump

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.60

    Pros

    East to use when it works

    Cons

    It is not free and the updates are high priced. There are many cliches and the customer service is very slow.

    Summary

    I installed the software a couple years ago. I have been charged more for updates thank most software costs new. I started having problems and tried to get help. It took over two weeks to finally get ad solution to the problem. The solution is they want me to delete the software and any registration codes from my computer even though I paid for them and then they will refund my money. They don't have a fix for the problem. I have been on forums regarding this problem and I am not the only one experiencing the problem.
    If you choose to purchase the software I wish you luck.

    "I have not even purchased it and I hate this company."

    May 23, 2012  |   By Lowboybootay

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.37

    Pros

    NONE. NONE.

    Cons

    Software not free to MAC users even though website states it is.
    Can't even find a telephone number on the entire website to help with sales or support.
    Must pay for technical support.
    Deceptive advertising every step of the way.

    Summary

    Website states the software is free. It is not free for MAC. You are downloading a trial version. Of course you are not told that. Then you spend hours entering invoice information only to find out that the program is not useable after two weeks unless you BUY it. For a PC, there is a way to implement a free version, but instructions to do so are nowhere to be found. When the PC version stops working after two weeks, the implication is you must buy it to continue use. You must waste valuable time searching the website with hundreds of FAQ until you find a little tiny blog answer that describes how to implement the free version. Check the website and try and find "real human being support" options. Even the website instructions are filled with attitude. I would not buy this product or deal with this company if they were the last invoicing software company on the planet. STAY AWAY. Read reviews on the web about these guys before buying.

    "Absolute crap"

    April 13, 2012  |   By ejvids

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.37

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    This software is plagued with glitches. It randomly decides to apply a payment to an invoice even when it is instructed to record only. Let me elaborate. When you create a new invoice you get various options, two of them being "record with a payment" and "record only". This useless software randomly decides to "record with payment" even though you select "record only". If you then look at your payments page, there's no record of a payment, yet when you print the invoice out, there's a payment showing. I've brought this to the OEM's attention and they told me to download a fix - of course it didn't work and the problem persists. Be careful what you click on, or you'll be constantly bombarded with ads from this company.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time or money. Find something better.

    "Seems to work well."

    February 22, 2012  |   By dashserv

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.37

    Pros

    Has most of the functions I need for invoicing etc.

    Cons

    Says the following on website "Get it Free. A free version of this program is available for home user or businesses with fewer than 5 staff members. Download the free version which does not expire and includes most of the features of the professional version." but alas it expires after 14 days. What a waste of time setting it up. False advertising.

    Summary

    Not happy with the fact that things aren't quite what they seem. Nag screens and toolbars etc should have alerted me to this setup.

    "It's NOT free!"

    February 15, 2012  |   By Harper67

    Version: Express Invoice Plus Edition 3.37

    Pros

    I can't give a rating on the software performance. It expired 14 days after I downloaded. This is a trial software. Not free as it shows up in the free filter.

    Cons

    Is this software in the wrong category?
