Enter Zoho Billing, the game-changing full-fledged billing platform designed to help you, the business owner, make more money. No accounting degree required.
Why Traditional Accounting Software Isn’t Enough
You’ve probably tried QuickBooks or something similar. Sure, they’re great—if you’re an accountant. But what about you, the business owner who needs to get paid, like, yesterday? Traditional accounting software focuses on ledgers and balance sheets, not on helping you get paid faster.

Features that Solve Real Cash Flow Problems
Do you now why small businesses fail? Lack of cash. With that in mind, one of your top priorities is making sure that you’re making money from all of your products and services. To do that, you’re going to need a platform that’s focused on helping you create products, services and offers that are profitable.
And this is something that Zoho Billing does in spades.
Easy Product Management
Problem: Ever spent hours setting up a product catalog? I’m actually guessing that you probably do NOT have a complete list of your products and services.
If you want to run a profitable business, you’re going to need to come up with profitable offers.
Solution: With Zoho Billing, you can effortlessly manage your products and services, making sales a breeze. Zoho Billing follows “best practices” when it comes to creating irresistible and profitable offers.
Create a list of everything that you can sell, how much that product or service costs, and the HIGHEST price you intend to sell it for.
Here, you can see a simple example of what I have as my individual items.
I can’t say enough about how powerful this is.
Embeddable Pricing Tables
Problem: Have you ever thought about how much money you’re leaving on the table?
Creating packages and bundle offers is a proven way to increase your sales by up to 300%. However, creating pricing tables can be a time-consuming task and require graphic design skills.
Solution: Zoho Billing makes it easy for you to create visually appealing pricing tables that showcase your products and services in a way that entices customers to buy. Plus, you can easily customize the pricing tables to fit your brand and offerings.
Here’s how to create that pricing table:
Click on Subscription Items
Then add your different offers. You can create subscriptions such as “Good, Better, Best” or you can do what I did and simply create unique offers.
Granted, my table isn’t so “pretty” but finding a design you like is just one click away.
Just click on “Change” in widget template and you’ll see several professionally designed tables.
But here’s what makes these tables so powerful. If and when your pricing changes inside of Zoho Billing — it’s going to change on your website! If you update the text, you’ll just have to repaste the code into that section of your website (just to be sure).
Upsell and Cross-Sell Opportunities
Problem: Are you missing out on opportunities to increase your revenue from existing customers?
Upselling and cross-selling are powerful strategies for increasing sales and profits, but many businesses struggle to implement them effectively.
Solution: With Zoho Billing, you can easily set up upsell and cross-sell offers for your customers based on their previous purchases. This allows you to make more money from each customer without having to constantly market to new leads.
You wouldn’t normally think about a billing software when it comes to upselling or cross selling, but I’m going to bring it up because upsells and cross sells are the best and easiest ways to increase your profits.
Remember that itemized product and service list we discussed above? This is where you put that list to use.
Everywhere you create an offer, you can include specific “add-ons”. For example, let’s say your basic plan includes a single monthly call with you. Your customers can “add on” additional calls.
Efficient Billing Processes
Problem: Tired of manually creating invoices and tracking expenses?
Solution: Zoho Billing automates all of that, freeing you to focus on what you do best—running your business. With customizable invoice templates, you can create professional-looking invoices in minutes. And with online payment options, you can get paid faster and more efficiently.
In a way, your billing practices form a crucial part of your overall
Timely billing also plays a significant role in building your credibility. It sends a strong message to your customers about your professionalism and reliability. With Zoho Billing, you can guarantee that payments are made on time, every time.
Convenient Payment Handling
Problem: Struggling with partial payments or multiple payment methods?
Solution: Zoho Billing handles partial and bulk payments with ease, even sending automated reminders to make sure you get paid.
A smooth and flexible payment process significantly contributes to a seamless customer experience, enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty. By accommodating partial payments and multiple payment methods, Zoho Billing caters to the diverse needs and preferences of your customers.
This convenience in payment handling removes potential obstacles in the purchasing process, making it easier for customers to buy from you.
Manage Customer Lifecycle

Solution: With Zoho Billing’s customer lifecycle management features, you can automate and simplify the process of managing customer accounts, from the trial phase through to the retention phase. This comprehensive approach ensures that no customer falls through the cracks, helping to foster lasting relationships that go beyond a single transaction.
From a marketing perspective, an effective management of the customer lifecycle can lead to higher customer retention rates, increased customer lifetime value, and more word-of-mouth referrals—all of which are crucial for sustainable business growth. It also enables you to identify and respond to customer needs more effectively, resulting in better customer experiences and a stronger brand reputation.
Powerful Business Insights
Problem: Need actionable insights but don’t know where to start?
Solution: Zoho Billing offers powerful metrics that help you make informed decisions to grow your business.
Zoho Billing reports provide a deep dive into your financial health, shedding light on key performance indicators (KPIs) such as revenue, expenses, unpaid invoices, and more. The detailed financial reports can be customized based on your needs, enabling you to focus on metrics that matter most to your business.
For example, the Sales Report gives you an overview of your sales performance, breaking down your revenue by product, service, or customer. It helps you identify which offerings are doing well and which ones might need tweaking.
