Do NOT phase out the Client Billing feature!

Phasing out the "Client Billing" feature is a massive dissapointment for many agency and freelance users.

Transitioning to Bonsai brings only pain points to the users related to i.e. costs, management and client communication.

    Guys, they can probably bring this back someday. Just use some other cool products for billing for now.

    This move sucks imo. Not to be rude, but sometimes blunt is best. I was in love with webflow, now my heart is broken. Sure, webfllow wasn't perfect, and we had our problems, but this is a major dissapointment, a letdown, an unfufilled expectation. Oh the drama. That'll learn me to remember to be cynical about my software.

    looks like webflow will be losing a lot of clients this way, sadly.

    Sadly, if this goes ahead, WebFlow will lose all my clients. I will transition to another all in one supplier similar to webflow.

    The Client Billing Code is a field on the filing workflow that allows users to associate each transaction with a certain client. You can enter whatever terms or descriptors your firm uses internally to differentiate client cases.

    Not going to lie... I think its a good idea that Webflow drops the Client Billing... being in Australia and having to bill clients in USD was always doing my head in, about 6 months ago I started using Bonsai and absolutly love it. Its so easy to use and it makes seeing if all your clients have paid your invoices an absolute breeze. It does client billing the way it should be and has everything that Webflow didn't or sucked at.

    I'm probably in the minority here, I would much rather webflow put their devs to work on sorely needed improvements to the core product, like adding WebP image support as opposed to maintaining client billing. They have made a good alternative available (bonsai)

    this puts me in an awkward situation. i've retired and i don't want to have to go back to work figuring this out and having to renegotiate with my client on payment.

    Agree with a lot of people here ā€” this is one of the best features and selling points of Webflow. Disappointed to hear it's going away!

    Same here Electric Mustard Mustard! I actually used to use Duda and just recently moved to Webflow because they offered client billing. But now ironically Webflow removed client billing and Duda just started client billing. So I guess duda is a pretty good alternative for anyone looking for a new platform. šŸ¤¦ā€ā™‚ļøšŸ˜©

    Please do not phase this out. Its one of the main features that i moved all of my sites over for! Huge step backwards...

    Will be a real reason to look further for a new platform.

    Not normally vocal on anything Webflow, however this is very, very disappointing.

    Super annoying and disappointing.

    WEBFLOW, PLEASE, LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMER NEEDS.

    Client Billing is actually one of the best features Webflow has for agencies and freelancers, one of the main reasons I even moved to Webflow in the first place is the ease of the client billing system, Webflow is slow stripping away the features people come to their platform to use.

    Now Iā€™m expected to get my clients on some random payment solution? Iā€™m assuming the option is either I cover their hosting and charge them externally, or transfer their website to a personal account? What a joke!

    What about someone who has set up billing for clients with $0 commission built into the monthly cost, this is just a way to extract $240/year. Here are we trying to save the costumer needs but unfortunately Webflow does not give one single effort about the Wishlist.

    Webflow should finally stop worrying about scoring points on the SJW ranking and start worrying about the needs of their customers. I had countless sleepless nights because of webflow and it's absolut hidious limitations. Webflow should support small bussinesses and agencies - but they're not doing that at all. I have a very bad feeling about the future of webflow. I'm at a point where I wish and hope, that a competitor will soon kick webflow out of market with a CMS that deserves the name and understands the need of No-Code designers.

    Client Billing is the only reason why me and all the "Webflow developers" I know use Webflow.

    The convenience of not having to interface with customers for the hosting payment issue simplifies the work a lot.


    Dear webflow developers, do you know what will happen when you remove Client Billing?

    Every single Italian user will contact you to receive the invoice for the payment made out to the customer because in the real world taxes are paid and we are obliged to make invoices for external costs to customers.


    As they say in Rome "daje forte", it will be nice to switch to more updated platforms.

    This is the demonstration that Webflow does not care about communities and users, only money counts.


    But the money comes from the community, which after this bullshit will be anything but happy to continue spending money on such a platform.
