    SnapBill: Automated Online Billing Made Easy

    Pretoria based online company SnapBill is a billing system aimed at small and medium sized businesses requiring automated subscription or recurring billing with payment collection facilities. Unlike many other billing solutions, SnapBill fully automates direct debit orders via a variety of payment gateways.

    SnapBill offers a comprehensive mix of invoicing, billing, client management and payment collection features and can be fully customised for your branding . It has integrated service provisioning functionality so you can add and sell your own services while it fully automates your recurring and subscription billing.

    SnapBill is secure, automated and always available. Use it anywhere in the world, from any web enabled device and at any time.

    SnapBill was developed by South African entrepreneurs Jaco van Wyk and Josh Yudaken. It grew out of the need they had for a billing system at Lusion Technologies, their web and reseller hosting business. The main goal behind SnapBill was to bring affordable enterprise level billing to any business. Snapbill was launched in beta form in Mach 2010 to local businesses and after thorough user testing and extensive detailed refinement, was launched internationally in March 2011.

    “We are uniquely positioned amongst other billing solutions in the sense that SnapBill provides a highly customisable, out-the-box, billing and client management solution,” says co-founder Jaco van Wyk. “We do have an API available but our focus has been on providing businesses with a system they can immediately put to use.”

    Debit order automation is another great benefit unique to SnapBill. SnapBill automates the entire debit batch generation, submission and reconciliation process for EFT and NAEDO type debit collections. Debit batches are automatically created containing all clients who wish to be debited on a specific day, based on their outstanding invoices and chosen debit dates.

    Since launching internationally in March 2011 SnapBill has continued to see an increase in growth rate of South African users as well as a promising uptake of SnapBill over 6 continents and 60 countries worldwide. It currently has over 4000 registered users actively billing in more than 40 currencies. Some users automate billing for over 50000 clients and invoice to the value of R100 million (approximately USD 15 million) per month.

    As for future developments, Jaco says that “We have a few big ideas in the pipeline. I cannot say too much about them at the moment, but included is a SnapBill SMS based billing solution, a completely free simple invoicing system and integration with various popular third-party services.

    Other than SnapBill, Jaco and Josh are currently in the process of developing a revolutionary white-label cloud reseller hosting solution, HostDeploy which runs on the Amazon Web Services cloud and features complete SnapBill integration for billing and service provisioning.
