I need a little addvice. Right now im not making alot of money to be buying a billing system. Now what should i do?

I was thinking of making my own custom HTML Form for ordering and support tickets like when a client fills it out it will auto mail the information to my email with his email so we can contact each other but then i have to make the invoices every month on my own and do all the work that the billing system is suppose to do or should i just but a billing system? Witch should I do. I do have a lot of time on my hands.

I would have pointed you to this thread (siforek sells his custom billing system as well), but you already noticed it yourself.

For $6.95/month, you can get a 25 client license of Client Exec from http://clientexec.licensepal.com/. I would recommend paying the $7.00/month and then upgrading to unlimited when you have reached your 25 clients. Then you'll have a good solid place to be able to afford it.

Client Exec is a great start. And for a few dollars more, you can get WHMCS (which is simliar). You can automate much of what you're trying to do. Time is money! The more time you have to spend going through stuff, the less time you have for marketing or time with family etc. Automate yourself toward freedom (you'll never get there, but it's nice to try)

There's jBilling and phpCoin which you can try. jBilling looks more promising.

Thanks. Sometimes you don't need the entire system that other software offers.

ClientExec is definitely a smart way to start considering the price tag but I personally prefer WHMCS if/when spending more on billing software is viable for you.

We use Machform for some of our forms. Its great, very easy to use, and its a one time license fee of $39. Great investment.

I've tried jBilling and it's not bad. Best of all it's free

I really do like WHMCS but I believe that clientexec is the cheaper option of the two if you are looking for something to get started with. If you ever choose to migrate over to WHMCS from clientexec I believe there is an import script put out by the WHMCS guys that will make that easier for you.
