BestPDF

Developed By BlueRabbIT

Compatible with WHMCS v8.5

More professional looking PDF invoices and quotes

The built-in WHMCS PDF generation is pretty limited, with only two configurable options: page format and font. Are you tired of, or overwhelmed by, tinkering with php files to get acceptable results?

BestPDF has got you covered. This module massively improves the way WHMCS generates PDF invoices and quotes. With its easy to use GUI, it allows you to set over 200 different parameters that allow you to create your PDF invoices and quotes the way you want.

This allows for better quality output, since you can place anything you want in your PDF template like your logo, company information, banking information etc. BestPDF will then draw the customer address, invoice details, items and transaction table where they belong and you get the perfect invoice!

Plenty of features

  • Use PDF templates for high quality output - BestPDF will draw the invoice on top
  • Upload custom TrueType fonts
  • Highly customizable with over 200 configuration parameters
  • Set layout, positions, formatting, fonts and colors of all the various invoice/quote elements
  • Output HTML items and text in PDF, HTML and Emails
  • Supports long, multiple page documents
  • Supports LTR and RTL languages
  • Integrates with the BlueRabbIT Pingen.com module (optional)
  • Integrates with the BlueRabbIT Swiss QR/ISR module (optional)

Best I've ever seen, but I have a concern. If I forget to renew the subscription, none of my clients can issue an invoice. This is tricky because it can lead to me losing sales.

This happened to me in the trial version when it ended. Why not allow the issuance of invoices with a stamp of your brand. Or put your brand on the footer. Now preventing people from selling is not good. Thats why I give 3 star. Reconsider how to get your customers to renew, but not stop them from selling.

Now I am using a paid version, but afraid that something happens with subscription validation and you block my customers from issuing an invoice.

Hi,
Can we add QR to invoices (including : Vat number + total payment with Vat + date & time + Vat amount) ?
also does it support RTL and Arabic language ?
Regards

Hello Suhaib,

we have a module in the marketplace called SEPA QR that integrates seamlessly with BestPDF. While it currently targets the EU, we could easily implement other QR standards for other countries. Please get in touch with us by opening a ticket at my.bluerabbit.solutions so we can discuss this further.

Arabic language support is possible, as BestPDF supports TrueType fonts. We just baked in RTL support in version 2.10.0.
Feel free to order a trial version and give it a spin!

The best software to have pdf file customization for invoices and quotes.

In addition, the support is very responsive, really perfect, nothing to say.

Incorrect price.
Price is 199$ to buy, 5$ is leasing price.
So basicly click-bait..

Extremely overpriced as the PDF format is open sourced.

Edit: as responce, it should be set to 199$ then, not 4.99$... thats not the BUY NOW price.
Of course i give it 1 star review on price when its not true, tbh, you can get alot of different plugins for eg wordpress that does the same for less, so its also overpriced, at this price though i will write my own, the price is your business, but saying 4.99$ is a shabby business tactic, no offence.

Unfortunately the WHMCS Marketplace does not allow us to define multiple pricing, so we use the "starting from" logic and put the lowest price.
We also offer a free trial version. Too bad you did not bother to try it out and decided to leave a 1-star review based on the price alone.

Wir haben auch noch dieses Modul von BlueRabbit im Einsatz nebst dem Pingen und Swiss QR WHMCS Modul. Auch dieses hier können wir zu 100% empfehlen, denn es erleichtert das anpassen von den WHMCS Rechnungen und Offerten sehr. Es bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten zur Anpassung der Rechnungen und Offerten. Hier möchte ich auch noch erwähnen, dass bei jedem Modul von BlueRabbit eine sehr gute README/Installations und Konfigurationsanleitung beiliegt.

Vielen Dank für das tolle Modul!

Thank you for this very useful module.
