Blinksale is perfect for any small business. Having multiple ventures myself, I use Blinksale for each of them and I have never had an issue.

Melio is a business-to-business service, so it has been helpful in serving our business clients. Unfortunately, we are not able to use it, for nonbusiness clients, at this time.

  • There should be an automatic link between vendors added with their Melio link and the same vendors that already exist in QuickBooks. As it is now, a new vendor is created when you do that and is not linked with the one that already is in QuickBooks.

I'm giving Blinksale a 10 because it really is a perfect invoicing app. Sure, there are things that can be grown, but comparative to other invoicing apps I've used, Blinksale is lights-out. There isn't a small business owner that doesn't need to try out Blinksale for invoicing.

After evaluating and using several invoicing applications, I landed on Blinksale. They just fit my needs perfectly as a small business owner. The app is brilliantly designed, easy to navigate, painless, and makes invoices look great to clients. Tracking invoices and getting paid inside Blinksale are a breeze. On top of that, their unlimited plan for $15 a month is a steal for the product they are offering.

Bill.com is more expensive and more difficult to use than Melio. While it has a greater range of functionality and apparently has better integration into QuickBooks, we didn't need the greater functionality and I had just as much trouble integrating into Bill.com as I have with Melio.

Melio
  • negative -- caused late fees and angry vendors to due withheld payments
  • negative -- held all my transfers causing late fees and other penalties. They caused damage to my vendor relationships due to needlessly delayed business to business payments
