Editors' Review

Express Invoice is a tool for creating invoices and managing bills for small businesses. Its simple layout and helpful options make it a great program for keeping an eye on finances.

We found the program to be instantly inviting, with its functions clearly labeled and helpful onscreen instructions popping up along the way to express what data needed to be placed where. We were able to quickly populate a customer database with all billing information, build our warehouse of sale items from scratch, and apply both of these aspects toward creating an invoice. We were pleased with the professional and highly readable look of our invoices. They were perfect for printing and including with a sale. The program also offered simple tools for creating quotes and order forms, which have the same basic appearance as the invoice. Express Invoice also provided an extensive report-running feature. Here we could look at outstanding payments, current inventory, and much more.

Express Invoice is a freeware program. It comes as a compressed file, installs desktop icons without permission, and leaves behind folders after uninstall. We loved the program's simplicity and recommend it.

"These are a bunch of con artists & chislers"

November 03, 2012  |  By runninlad

 |  Version: Express Invoice 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 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 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 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.
