Invoicera offers monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and annual plans. If you’re in the market for a longer-term solution, you'll receive a 5% discount if you opt for the quarterly plan, 8% on the half-yearly plan, and 20% on the annual subscription.
Should you choose any of these options, you’ll need to pay for the entire period upfront. It’s worth noting that you won’t be reimbursed for any unused months should you cancel your account before the end of your subscription period.
Invoicera also takes a rather distinctive approach to generating new business with a commission-based “refer a friend” scheme. For those customers who believe Invoicera represents good value for money, referring another business owner yields a 30% commission on the new member’s lifetime fees.
If you choose to open an account with Invoicera, you can select from four plan types: Starter, Pro, Business, and Infinite.

Unlike many of its rivals, Invoicera offers a comprehensive free plan. And although you can’t add staff members to your account and are limited to 3 clients, this option could prove more than adequate for many freelancers and sole proprietors.
All plans—including the free offer—have access to Invoicera’s core services, but you’ll also benefit from several additional features on the paid plans. With the Pro plan, you’ll have a multi-business option that enables you to manage numerous organizations through a single account, as well as features designed to prevent you from sending incorrect invoices. Under the Business plan, you’ll also be able to add password protection to your PDFs, while the Infinite plan allows you to organize your invoices into batch PDFs for ease.
If you’re undecided about whether Invoicera is the right solution for your business, you could sign up for a 15-day free trial on one of its paid plans. Invoicera doesn’t require you to enter your credit card information in order to qualify for a free trial. It’s worth noting that, after the trial ends, you’ll automatically be signed up to Invoicera’s Starter plan. With that in mind, you’ll need to remember to cancel your subscription if you don’t wish to commit.
Invoicera’s interface is deceptively simple. Although the design appears fairly basic at first glance, the solution offers a wide range of features and rates highly in terms of ease of use.
Setting up an account for the free trial service took less than a minute and, as soon as we logged on, we were able to quickly and easily find all the information relevant to our account. Even beginners can get started with key tasks such as creating invoices, inviting other users to join the account, and managing expenses, with a single click.
But, despite this apparent simplicity, Invoicera offers a number of handy features that aren’t necessarily found with rival platforms. For example, we were impressed by the broad selection of reports available via the account dashboard. While reporting is a common feature of most invoicing solutions, Invoicera gives you the freedom to drill down into almost every aspect of your company’s operations. For example, you can run reports on outstanding credit notes across your business and view analytics on any projects that are considered a work in progress.
Another attractive feature of the software is that it offers multilingual labeling when you come to generate an invoice. This enables businesses to quickly and easily send global invoices in the appropriate native language, which could be hugely beneficial for companies operating worldwide.
One important point to note is that Invoicera is based entirely in the cloud, which can greatly increase flexibility for remote and agile workers. With the cloud, you can access any document within your account from any location without the need to download any apps onto your devices.
The biggest downside we encountered in terms of usability relates to the company’s website. Although the site is perfectly simple to navigate, we found some of the language a little jargon-heavy, which may present a problem for those new to invoicing software.
To gain a full picture of Invoicera’s usability, we also trialed the product’s mobile app and, again, found the layout extremely easy to navigate, with all key information readily available upon login.
It's fair to say that Invoicera has a great deal to offer business owners—from freelancers to larger-scale enterprises. As well as providing all the necessary features to streamline the invoicing process, the software is extremely easy to get to grips with, with an interface that allows users to perform a number of key tasks in a single click. And despite the relatively high fees on Invoicera’s Infinite plan, small-to-medium-sized organizations can access most of the software's key features via its free option. If you’d like to increase the number of users on your account, it could be worthwhile signing up for a free trial to gain a little more understanding of the platform’s potential benefits.
