    Just one question I am testing now WHMCS to see if I will buy it or not.
    I would prefer to use the ISPC solution.

    Will the ISPC solution do the same thing as the WHMCS?
    And do we have to wait a very long time for it? So I can decide if I use WHMCS as a monthly description or buy the thing if development is a another 2 years or so.

    Oke 2 questions.. ;)

    I dont know all features which whmcs has, but I can tell you which features the ISPConfig billing system currently has and which will get added until it gets released.

    Current state:

    - Create invoices (invoice editor)
    - Save invoices as PDF
    - Supports for multiple companys in one installation (company = sender / creator of the invoice)
    - Invoice item templates
    - Recurring invoice items (e.g. for websites, domains, support contracts)
    - Automatic creation of invoices based on the recurring invoice items.
    - Management of payment terms.

    I use it already for about two months for our invoicing.

    Features that need to be added:

    - Internationalisation of date and currency formats
    - Automatic billing trough payment gateways (e.g. paypal, worldpay).
    - Automatic sending of invoices by email
    - Client view to allow clients to view a list of their invoices within ISPConfig
    - Automatic demand notes (not sure if that the correct term, in german its "Mahnungen", the letter that you send if someone has not paid in time).
    - Event based system to add / remove recurring invoce items based on events like website insert, email domain insert or creation of a client with a specific client template applied.

    I've attached 2 scrrenshots.

    There is no release date yet. But I hope that I will be able to make a online demo of a first beta version available in a september / october.

    We made good progress with the development in the last weeks. It still needs some work but I expect that we will have a first beta soon.

    will it be easy to add new payment gateways?
  15. till

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    Yes. The payment gateways are in a separate file / class each.

    Great, this will hopefully save substantial bank fees and much of my admin time.

    Will this module have an export of the billing information for external financial software in any standardized format?

    PS: Please send a big newsletter when you release it ;)
