I know their is a lot of billing systems I am really liking the look of Blesta compared to WHMCS these days and the support for them is a lot better it seems and a lot cheaper for a yearly update

THe main reason for this post is due to Blesta vs WHMCS thread

I say go for it as both points are true. They even offer lifetime licensing as well (even with forever updates and support included). In addition these people are indeed very nice in support. I always go with services that include a nice community.

Blesta is going in the right direction,but until they have more modules,it will not be useful.I personally do not like their admin area.

Admin end is very confusing. Blesta need redesign their admin end. Also support module is very basic. They don't have any affiliate module/plugin.

Personally I find it MUCH less confusing than WHMCS's admin end. That end seems a never end of drop menus and steps.

I have used both billing system, To be completely honest I find WHMCS Much better billing system from the interface of the software getting to know and understand it to the support that WHMCS has. When ever I have needed to contact support for what ever the issue may be they have responded to my tickets quite fast.

Blesta, I used them for about a year or so. It was okay,I did not like there admin area at all needs to be re-designed when adding "addons" some time it couldn't find the addons that you were looking for, And when trying to contact support some time it would take a week to have the issue resolved. It is a few dollars cheaper then WHMCS but In the long run you get a much better product from WHMCS

What I find really irritating in most of these threads is people claim they don't have a lot of "addons" what do you need and did you tell them you need it? Or do you want a catalog of about 25,000 whilst you use about 5? They have a feature request forum to post what you need.

PS: Sorry OP didn't want to jump in as I did but that's 2 posts about "addons" and nothing about what they need or is missing.

I like the fact with Blesta is all you need is 4 active licences and you can set up a reseller account to resell Blesta or a lifetime licence and you can resell straight away.

With WHMCS you need a licence direct from them and them pay a min 5 licences ($78) a month

We're keeping an eye on the billing systems at the moment, as whilst our billing system is great from a flexibility point of view it's looking a bit old and stale.

I have not had an opportunity to use blesta but from my experience with WHMCS, it felt as it is almost the complete billing application as far as a web hosting provider concerned.

I would be happy to see if someone can list out the major advantages of Blesta over WHMCS.

WHMCS main advantage is it's connection to cPanel/WHM in my opinion. They might have a better access to the codes and future releases. Other that, modules and newer payment methods are very important for a billing system

In my views, WHMCS is best.
Blesta, BoxBilling etc are not good from admin area and little but confusing.
WHMCS is little bit costly but easy-to-use.
