    how much does it cost you guys to invoice your clients. taking into consideration- TIME (afterall, it does equal money:rolleyes: ), invoices, computer programs you are using, stamps, envelopes, etc. what is your monthly cost to invoice clients? thank you

    It costs us about a $1.60 per client per month, if we bill monthly, but we do offer a discount for clients who pay for the whole season up front, saves us a little time (with our software it takes about 2 minutes to create and print a detailed invoice) and money, but more importantly it keeps us from having to deal with as many late payments.payup

    no way
    stamp and envelope are almost that...
    printer ink, paper and your time in recording transaction.. etc all have to be accounted for.

    we think ours is about $3.00

    $3.00 for what. Sounds high. I would try to work on that.
    stamp and evelope still less than .42.
    I mail 300+ invoices every month and my cost is less than .50 each
