What is it?

Blinksale: Blinksale is an online invoice creation and management tool.


Who makes it?

Firewheel Design

Why is it the killerest?

Blinksale makes creating, sending and tracking invoices very simple.  Going through the process of creating an account, setting up clients and sending the invoice takes just a few minutes.  Blinksale isn't overloaded with a bunch of useless, confusing features. As a designer, I appreciate flexibility to customize invoices to my liking.  For non-designers, Blinksale offers a nice array of standard invoice templates. The best thing about Blinksale is that it allows business owners to do one very important thing - get paid.  These invoices will not only make it easy for you, it will also help your client.  Blinksale invoices have a very professional look, but are also very easy to read and understand. When Blinksale becomes available to the public, it will be a must-have tool for business owners.

What could be improved?

Blinksale is in beta testing right now, so I'm sure some of these kinks will be worked out.  But one feature I was looking for is the ability to preview invoices which I have custom designed using CSS.  I have been told by the fine folks at Firewheel that this is something their looking to change, however. Other than that, its killer!

How much does it cost?

$6 / month for base plan

Blinksale and Fresh Books look great. However we really need the ability to send quotes and invoices from the same platform. We actually quote more than we invoice. I'm really surprised they don't have the feature since a quote is so similar in format to an invoice.
