Features

Professional Invoices

Blesta creates gorgeous, professional looking PDF invoices, and sends them to your clients automatically. Invoices can be sent via email, fax, postal mail, or queued up for print and delivery by your staff.

Automation

Blesta has automation down so that you can focus on what matters most; growing your business. Through automation and a simple intuitive interface, you’re able to spend less time using Blesta and more time getting stuff done.

Payment Gateways

Blesta supports all the most popular payment gateways, and we’re continually adding more.

Payment Reminders

Blesta can send payment reminders prior to an invoice due date, and late reminders after an invoice becomes late. The email message, the number of days before or after the invoice is due, and the time of day the message is sent is all configurable.

Multi-Currency

Accept money in any currency you like. Gateways, once installed, allow you to specify which currencies to accept from the ones it supports.

Client Management

In Blesta, client management happens on each client’s “Client Profile” page. This page contains all information pertaining to the client, and all actions that can be performed on their account.

Account Actions

Every action that can be performed for a client can be performed from their client profile page.

Basic actions can be performed, including creating new invoices, making payment, adding services, even logging in as the client, and more.
