    I really prefer http://www.fastdue.com for invoicing- it’s free and does what I want, without all the configuration and sign up that FB puts you through. FB does have some advantages though if you’re running a big business and want to do detailed client tracking. As a freelancer with a 5 person shop though, Fastdue make better economic sense.
