Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When should you use an estimate?
A: Estimates are valuable if a customer would like to know a general price point for your products or services. If you're not sure of the job site or scope, estimates are a great tool to help you come up with a realistic price point.
Q: What's the difference between an estimate and a quote?
A: A quote is legally binding, while an estimate isn't legally binding. If you send a quote, that's the price the customer will pay for the job, regardless of what happens. An estimate gives you more flexibility.
Q: What happens after you issue an estimate?
A: The customer can decide to accept the estimate and contact you for a quote. Many customers use estimates to see which company offers the products or services they need at the lowest price, so they request them when they start shopping around.
Q: Is this estimate generator free to use?
A: Yes, our online estimate generator is completely free of charge. If you decide to register and use all Billdu features, you can select a plan starting from $3.99 which will enable you to create unlimited number of estimates and the estimates you generated and sent will all be accessible online in your Billdu dashboard or via our mobile app.
Q: Can I customize the looks of this estimate template?
A: Sure, at the very top of this estimate generator you can find settings. Here, you can switch between the five estimate templates we offer. Also, you can set the color of your estimate here.
Q: Do you support multiple languages and currencies?
A: Absolutely. Again, in the settings at the very top you’ll find a dropdown with all the languages we support. Choose English, Spanish, French or one of the other 16 languages available. You also need currency to set a currency so that it correctly appears in the estimated item subtotals and estimate total amount.
