    "dont buy it"

    May 4, 2014  |   By tradeon44

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.12

    Pros

    ok making invoices but read on below

    Cons

    You can edit your saved or recorded invoices except for the invoice number.If you save it as a draft and then retreive it so u can email the same or altered invoice to someone you have previously invoiced,guess what,you still cannot change the invoice number.This means if I have 75 customers like I have ,and I invoice them regularly for the same service,I have to either send them a previous invoice with the previous invoice number with the date updated,remember,I cannot change the invoice number,or I have to make 75 new invoices which i have been doing every month because I dont want to send them previous invoices with the old invoice number.Really dissappointed with this rather stupid situation Support replied,sorry,you cannot edit ,change the invoice number,though you can edit everything else.

    "It's better than okay software considering its free!"

    February 16, 2014  |   By kapzak

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.87

    Pros

    Very easy to setup and its incredibly obvious with the layouts and options hence it becomes very easy to use.

    Definitely *not* a malware!

    Taking backup is as easy as copy and paste(in a specific folder path).

    (Please note that I have used Express Accounting & not Express invoice, but its the same except Express Accounting covers invoice,inventory and accounting)

    Oh and also don't judge this program by it's size, it is fast and very reliable.

    Cons

    Making an invoice is not easy as it should be, like tab tab enter enter and done!
    It lacks auto completion of item name and I have to scroll the name in a very long list(even after selecting an alphabet). This is the biggest setback for me and MANY users but the company doesn't listen.

    Every time I have to set the margins or layout of item name and other columns to suit my needs which makes it cumbersome to use.
    This makes it hard to create invoice real time when there are a lot of customers waiting to be billed with long item list.

    Summary

    All in all a good product, I swear I am unable to find a better alternative to it, I have tried softwares like Quickbooks 2014,Tally,Busy etc. but none match its simple user interface and incredibly obvious layout and data management. All i want in this program is a much FASTER way to create invoices.

    "NOT malware, and definitely a decent FREE product...."

    February 6, 2014  |   By corsa59

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.87

    Pros

    No, it is not malware, although it is a pain the way they install lots of other stuff like toolbars and programs. Besides what a lot of people say about this program, it is FREE, if you install the free version. If you install the professional version, yes it runs for a period of time, then locks you out. But never fear, save your data, uninstall the pro version, install the free version, and your data works. You just have to certify that less than 5 people use the program (every time you start the program).

    I have been using the program in my one man business since January 2010, and produced over 1500 invoices and keep records of over 750 customers. Never had a single issue with the program.

    Cons

    I would like to be able to have the customer name set up with both a corporate name and/or a first and last name for personal customers. At the moment, If I add a customer John Smith, he is under J for John, not S for Smith.

    Regardless of how many requests for change or recommendations for improvement, they all fall on deaf ears, nothing is ever replied to or acted on. I would certainly buy the program if they listened to their customers.

    Summary

    8 out of 10. Works wells, backups are easy. Data seems to be secure. I would like them to make a few changes to the layout, but they don't listen. I hate when they change the format and my tried and true set up needs to be adjusted again. But what can you expect for a free program.

    "Possible Malware - Very Concerned About This Software"

    August 17, 2013  |   By SoftwareGuy112

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.87

    Pros

    Seemed Easy To Use Albeit With A Few Bugs

    Cons

    Software also downloaded around 12 additional software packages - despite my preferences not to.
    I am extremely concerned about privacy issues with this software - on visiting their website, they already had my email address! Despite me specifically NOT entering my email address anywhere (even on this download site) I am very concerned that my internet connection is now active every time I use my keyboard - as if everything I type is being uploaded to the internet - very very unusual files installed for such a simple application - I now have multiple additional services running on my machine which were not there before.

    Summary

    For crying out loud , if they had provided a simple app I may have continued to use and purchase - but now I have to spend hours stripping their additional software and services out of my system - considering my concerns, and the fact that this software offers you the ability to record customer credit card details - this is a great concern.

    I Would NOT recommend this software and would certainly not recommend installing this software onto a machine with sensitive financial and/or personal information on it.

    "Unexciting but useful"

    June 11, 2013  |   By wfjackson7

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.83

    Pros

    Has all of the basics you'll need for a small-sized business
    Very easy to use

    Cons

    Tech support costs extra and has a limited number of uses for phone support
    No real advanced features
    Doesn't automatically integrate with the company's inventory management program

    Summary

    If you don't need frills or advanced features, this program will get the job done. I wouldn't recommend this for a high-end business, or one that has a very dynamic inventory.

    "I should have read the reviews before buying."

    April 29, 2013  |   By drmarck

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 3.70

    Pros

    You can customize invoices very well.

    Cons

    Difficult to use for a novice.
    Expensive when you have to keep purchasing updates.
    I didn't update and lost all previous invoices done along with payments made...a major, unforgiveable problem.
    Help desk stinks.

    Summary

    Don't waste your money on this...you WILL regret it.
    On the bright side, it did force me to learn Quickbooks Online invoicing - definitely a better approach.

    "Not impressed"

    March 11, 2013  |   By Humbug66

    Version: Express Invoice Plus 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.
