There is no information regarding the company on the site, nor anywhere online. It is presumably a new app, so perhaps improvements will be forthcoming.
Other apps, notably Invoicebus, are superior in presentation and options. Invoiceocean simply does not allow the user to personalize, has a bug with the language options, and is a very basic, colorless, interface. The instructions are poorly written and the app is inferior to others of its type.
Once logged in, the user is taken to a page with tabs for Invoices, Clients, Products, and Reports. This page is the Invoice page and an invoice can be initiated from here. There are also links for contacting InvoiceOcean via chat as well as providing feedback.
There is a spelling error at the top of the page for "number" (It says "Numer"). This should indicate the invoice number. There is an area for the date of the invoice, the seller information including: tax ID, bank account, bank name, postcode, city, street and number. The area for buyer information includes: tax ID, postcode, city, and street. After completion, clicking "more" at the end of the section reveals that country, email, www (presumably for web address), fax, and phone are required for the seller section.
At the bottom of the page is the Invoice entry area. This has a space for name, quantity, net value, tax percentage, net total, and gross total. There is a dropdown menu for payment type and due date as well as notes. Users have the option of adding a status, amount paid, order number, and other information that it unable to be determined as it is partially in Polish, though the language preference is set to English. Languages include English, Dutch, French, and Polish. All Buyer and Seller information is saved for future invoices.
Clients may also be added via the client tab. Again, the user may need to rely on Google translate as the page is in Polish, though the selected language on the first page was English.
To add a product, the user enters the product name, description, code, net price, tax, and gross price. There is a blank for one time sale amount and the unit used to describe the item (lb., ft., etc.).
Users may generate monthly sales reports, daily sales, monthly count, and daily count (presumably of the number of items sold).
This is a very simple tool, however the inability to set the language and know it will continue correctly throughout the process make this more difficult to use. Several spelling and grammar issues were found throughout the site.
To register, a user needs a login name, email account, and password. Next, the user chooses a domain: xxxx.invoiceocean.com.
All accounts come with a 30 day free trial without credit card information required. The Micro account is free and comes with a 3 monthly invoice limit; unlimited clients; unlimited products and services; invoice, pro forma invoice, and corrected invoice; print to pdf feature; email invoice feature; invoices statuses: issued, sent, paid, delayed, partial payment; payment audit; Polish and English language invoices; many companies (undefined number); SSL, and access to some report features.
The Start Account costs $8 per month and includes all of the above with a 100 monthly invoice limit and 1 automated sale service or feature; SSL, and API.
The Pro Account is offered at $18 per month and has no limit to the number of invoices. It also includes advanced report features; two additional users; a custom invoice template; recurring invoices; warehouse options; own template of sent emails; a panel for clients; partial own system appearance; autopayments via PayPal; timesheets; and 25 available sale or product service listings.
The Max Plan is $29 per month and includes own appearance of system; additional options for customers such as integrating reports, SSO, new options, etc.; no limit to availability of products/services on the site, and the users own domain.
This application needs to work out some bugs, polish up the look of the app, and make sure everything works properly before it can be recommended.
