    I’d like to integrate billing with cPanel. Does anyone have advice on what software to use? I’d like to hear about good and bad experiences. Was it easy it install/integrate?

    Will cPanel ever integrate billing?

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    I don't see SQL-Ledger automating the signup process very easily.

    Modernbill integrates with Cpanel (and other control panels) and many payment gateways. You can have totally automated signups and recurring billing.

    The system is comprehensive and not impossibly difficult to set up. The integration with CPanel is very simple, but the billing part takes more time. The ModernBill documentation can be better, but their support forums more than make up for that.

    Great software. Support staff is annoying sometimes (hardly ever give you a straight-forward answer), but overall I've had a good experience with them.

    I agree, Modernbill is a great bit of software but the support sucks bigtime. They answer in such a brief and cryptic way that it makes no sence and then you have to wait another day to get them to answer again. Very anonying, but works well.

    perlbill.com is also a good solution. We have been using it for many months now with no problem.

    It also automates the account creation integration within Cpanel.

    If anybody is on the hunt for a good cPanel billing software I am in need of beta testers for my new software, Lpanel. It's made exclusively for cPanel and is completed, I just need to expand the gateways and have some user testing. If anyone is interested please either:

    a) visit http://www.lpanel.net

    or

    b) e-mail me scott@datacities.com

    Thanks and take care.

    Sincerely,

    Perlbillwould be a good solution, but modernbill support is a lot better than perlbill. Sorry.

    And many features are missing that I wanted, so I moved to modernbill. Tough for perlbill.. Oh well.

    The only thing I dislike about modernBill is the interface.

    It's 500% overkill... and not having seperate interfaces for host/customer login. Even though they claim it's "template" based.. and I suppose it is, it's a nightmare to integrate it into your own website. (lookwise)

    And then if you did.. you still would have to share the same interface (less functionality of course) with your users as the current version doesn't support multiple templates.

    In truth, I find almost all of the products out there lacking in four areas:

    1. Template/Integration/API
    2. Domain registrar functionality
    3. Synchronization with cpanel... no need for two accounts
    4. Affilliate management... multiple payout levels etc.


    I've created a dirty little page that lets users "store" their billing login info in cpanel and they can somewhat seamlessly move from it to the billing interface...

    Anyone ever come accross a good solution for this? I always cringe when I go to a site's "login" screen & see: Control Panel, Billing, Domain, Support etc all requireing new accounts.

    100% Agree with you there. I think Modernbill lacks a big big function by making it really complicated to modify the UI.
