What can you use the app for?

CannyBill.com helps users manage online orders and other transactions. The user can sell products and services online and bill their clients using CannyBill. The application provides forms for invoices and estimates. The user can choose to offer subscription or hourly services or can create a package option for their customers. CannyBill integrates with the user’s website so all purchases are handled without the customer navigating to a third party website. Automated payment reminders can be set up to notify clients of amounts due. The user can also set late fees and automatically suspend an account for non-payment after as many or few reminders as they like. CannyBill keeps track of recent and past invoices and allows users to set up accounts for their staff members.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

CannyBill was introduced in 2009 by Dpivision LTD. The application was designed to provide companies and professionals with an easy way to sell services and products. Users could create any kind of payment system they wanted. Although more options are appealing to most, CannyBill includes a wide variety of features that not everyone will use. Most businesses will find that the four subscription tiers currently available allow them to choose a level of service that matches their budget and needs.

CannyBill.com was shut down in 2012.

What are the differences to other apps?

CannyBill offers many services that are much like other similar applications. This type of service is relatively cut and dry, so it is hard to offer something truly different. CannyBill does manage to include an enticing list of options that include payment notifications and a number of billing choices. Users may also appreciate the reporting and forecast features built into the application.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

CannyBill keeps things clean so the user enjoys a smooth, obstacle-free experience. The application is very professional in design, with hints of colors showing through status bars and reporting tools. Even though the colors may be subdued, they still add just enough visual flavor to make the interface attractive without over doing it. Users can easily learn how to navigate through CannyBill’s many features. Unremarkable as it may be, CannyBill’s user interface gets the job done.

How does the registration process work?

New users can start a 30 day free trial by clicking the orange “See Plans and Pricing” button along the right hand side of the CannyBill homepage. The next page asks the user to select their preferred membership plan. The registration form will appear next and ask the user for their preferred CannyBill URL, a username, password and preferred language, time zone and currency. Business details are also requested, including the business name, email address, a first and last name for a contact person, physical address and phone number. The user is automatically taken to their new dashboard after submitting the form.
