Invoice and billing management

What is NetSuite SuiteBilling?

NetSuite’s billing solution, SuiteBilling, automates invoicing operations. Combine flat, tiered and consumption-based options with promotions, volume discounts and customer-specific rates for maximum flexibility. Support for multiple pricing models and complex rating scenarios make it easy to generate accurate invoices. And, SuiteBilling lets you manage the entire subscription lifecycle: Modify subscriptions and prorate billing, consolidate multiple charges on a single invoice and auto-generate renewal invoices to improve retention.


Improve Cash Flow

Inefficient manual billing leads to invoice errors that frustrate customers and delay payments. Automating the billing process means more accurate invoicing, which accelerates payments and improves cash flow.


Enduring Customer Relationships

Consolidated billing creates trust by displaying every charge on a single invoice, while customer-specific discounts drive repeat business and automated renewals reduce subscriber churn.


Ensure Revenue Compliance

Accounting for recurring revenue can be complex and time consuming. Now you can automate this process and manage revenue accurately and in accordance with the latest revenue recognition standards.
