[MarketPress eCommerce] Looking for the best way to use WPMU Dev for online Invoicing

Is there a way to use MarketPress as a means to invoice clients?

    Hello TikiKitchen

    I hope you are well today.

    This really would depend on the nature of the type of invoicing you're wanting to do. If you have a collection of services that are easily categorized and have simple variations such as time as a quantity, then yes, MarketPress could be used for this purpose. However, very detailed statistics and integration with other platforms such as Freshbooks or Sprout would not be easily achieved. To flesh MarketPress out as a full-fledged service invoicing platform would take some customization.

    MarketPress is really targeted towards being the "easy to use" shopping cart for those who want to sell physical and digital goods in an attractive way, without a ton of configuration or complexity. This makes it fantastic at this particular role, but it does limit it's ability for extending it without custom code.

    In this situation, you would probably be better off to choose an existing platform that is optimized for this particular task. The following search on WordPress.org turns up several really good plugins that are targeted specifically towards invoicing. Perhaps this would be more along the lines of what you need? https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/invoice/
