WHMCS Alternatives?

WHMCS Alternatives?

VictorVictor Member
edited July 2012 in General

I am looking for some WHMCS alternatives that are either free or paid(preferably with monthly subscriptions). No need for automation API/modules and etc, all will be done manually. Product needs to be able to support products such as dedicated servers, VPS and etc.

So far, I've found these: -BoxBilling(Seems to only focus on shared hosting) -ClientExec -Blesta

I don't need many features, just basic invoicing, recurring payments and etc.

Thanks.

  • If you do not need automation, you can easily use any 3rd party billing solution, not only targeted for hosting and create products to suit your needs.

    i am having issues with WHMCS, and i am migrating over to CE, boxbilling is free but there are limitations if i am right

  • I have been using Blesta for my billing/invoicing/automation. I have found their support at least to be quite fast and the interface to be good. While it doesn't have any accounting functions in terms of revenue reports yet, it is a good alternative imho.

    Blesta's code is ioncoded, but their templates are freely changeable and you can match your site and Blesta's software to blend in very nicely to make it more seamless.

    Now, if you are doing something like me, (Invoicing for hosting, web design and computer repair), Blesta is a bit weak in this area. It isn't built to do invoices on demand, but can be done fairly easily.

    I also use another service that others haven't mentioned and that is also http://www.billingboss.com which serves as a great invoicing/quote engine but is not self hosted.

    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas...well played.

    What sort of issues? ClientExec is a pain to setup, but it isn't too bad after that.

    Has anyone used http://www.spbas.com/ ? It's great, they added some hosting and registrar modules to it recently.

    @ynzheng You can still use Iono :P I think you can buy a license or use it if you had one previously. The Iono and phpAudit staff created SPBAS, just speak to them.

    @giang said: It's just as easy as WHMCS :\

    hmm.. When I first installed it which was a while back, lots of stuff was messed up, the e-mail templates were completely fudged and lots of other things, I submitted like 500 bug reports.. They did fix those issues that I reported but too late for me. :(

    I like it though.

  • Hmm... http://spbas.com Looks very interesting.

  • PADPAD Member

    Shame spbas have no information on modules like SolusVM etc. Only WHM.

  • It is quite expensive. I would have used it for my new project, but the pricing is way to high.

  • AsadHaiderAsadHaider Member
    edited July 2012

    @PAD The developers behind SPBAS are really great guys, their support is awesome too.

    If you mention it to them, I'm pretty sure they'll be up for making a SolusVM module for the next release. Their modular system only got released end of last year and they've done so much already.

    Heck, if their not interested I might make one of my own and release it.

    Remember its a one-off fee. @LiquidHost

    @AsadHaider

    Interesting.

  • @PAD said: Remember its a one-off fee. @LiquidHost

    Yes, I meant about my case / project, as I will try to do something really lowend in my spare time, this is not suitable :P

    But it indeed seems good and I will actually test it out this weekend.

  • http://www.spbas.com/pricing-and-signup

    Don't get it, it is supposed to be free (basic plan) and those "Support & Updates Renewal: $29 / 6 Months" are optional?

  • @martip07 Yeah, you can use it free up to 25 customers and then upgrade, which is a great way of doing it as you get full functionality and can build up customers before investing $200 into a license.

    Thanked by 1martip07
  • If you dont need API/Automation then why not just use a "proper" accounting package like quickbooks ?

  • I use our homemade billing system, Of course, written by myself.

  • I would use ClientExec over personal preference (WHMCS being first though). GUI isn't bad.

  • Any of the freeware open source suggestions? I use phpcoin, need some other suggestions.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    @qtriangle TBH, if you are providing premium service, get premium billing panels and not to be rude, you are selling whmcs service but you are not using whmcs?

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @NinjaHawk, I am a big advocate of opensource, so my first preference is opensource. I am also giving services in at least 20 php cms/scripts/packages. Does not mean that I have to use them if I provide the services.

    Thanked by 1Maounique
  • TazTaz Disabled

    Not sure how you work, but when I provide service related to a product, I make sure I have a exact working copy of it. This is crucial, time saver and required for quality output. The only reason most of the outsourced support sucks cause they barely have a working copy of what they are supposed to help with and only read or follow a simple manuscript. Sorry.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @NinjaHawk, working copy of whmcs is available free of cost from whmcs website, which can be used by anybody. If you want to use whmcs as billing system for your business then you have to pay for license.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    You can not use whmcs (can not access admin panel) without a valid license. Please proove me if I am wrong cause if that is the case,I have spent way too much money for whmcs dev task.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • Well I have used it like I said, you need to add license in your whmcs account after download. Not sure if they changed terms now.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Not atleast in last 3 years I have been with them.

    Try Hostersbill (www.hostersbill.co.in) it supports cpanel/plesk/directadmin etc and free too

  • Seriously. What's with all these old topics being brought back to life. >.>

  • @NinjaHawk said: @qtriangle TBH, if you are providing premium service, get premium billing panels

    Oh come on, that's total nonsense. First off price has nothing to do with being 'premium'. Second off, how exactly does it make sense to say that someone has to use a paid panel if he sells things himself, if a good free and open-source alternative is available? What obligates him to put down money for something that really is not necessary?

    Hostersbill is a newly released. But still ok. I changed to it from acp

  • I have been seriously considering Blesta recently and will switch once V3.0 is released with the new WHMCS importer module.

    WHMCS support is a joke - along with security issues :(
