One of the most important considerations when running a reseller hosting company is the billing software. There are many different types available to the general consumer at many different prices, some are even free. Those that are free are usually packaged with a reseller hosting account or within the control panel software.
There are many billing programs available for a price. A few examples of best quality reseller billing software include:
- Account Lab Plus
WHMautopilot and Clientexec are generally offered packaged with reseller hosting plans. WHMautopilot is an excellent billing program for beginners. It has the basic tools and is easy to use making it a top choice for novice reseller businesses. While Clientexec does offer more advanced features, it’s a popular program due to the simplicity for everyday management.
Modernbill is generally used with larger reselling businesses. One primary downside is that Modernbill tends to be expensive. It offers many advanced features including fraud protection, automatic account creation and compatibility with major control panels like cPanel and Plesk. On the other hand, Account Lab Plus offers many basic features and is fairly inexpensive.
PhpCoin is a free script that is another helpful program for those new to the reseller business. It offers the basic billing options. Conversely, WHMCS offers many features including fraud protection, automatic suspension and built in support tickets which are extremely important in the billing department. Also, WHMCS is easy to use, affordable and easy to setup. That way, it’s easy for both reseller beginners as well as experienced users.
Billing software is a vital aspect of the reseller business. When first starting the company, free software with basic features is an acceptable method for conducting business as there are a limited number of clients. Once the company expands, the needs of the business change. With more customers, more features will need to be utilized especially the detection of fraudulent charges and the protection of important billing information.
The security of billing software bundled with many features makes for a well-rounded and well-trusted software program. The above list is some of the highest quality billing programs currently available. Depending on the stage of business, they offer everything a client needs to accommodate their users. As billing software becomes more advanced, the technology will allow for more automated procedures.
