Backblaze has a great support team and one of the most frequent requests they receive is, “could you please provide an invoice?” From the beginning, we’ve been handcrafting every invoice that’s been sent out, and while we love making our customers happy, as Backblaze has grown it’s become increasingly difficult to keep up with all the requests. Over the last few years, we’ve been hard at work making the best online backup solution possible and that meant that our engineers were working on iterating and expanding the functionality of our backup client. Unfortunately this meant that some of the non-mission critical improvements we’ve wanted to make had to take a backseat. Well, the day of automated invoicing is finally upon us! Thanks to Monika, the latest addition to our engineering team. After joining Backblaze she was tasked with something of the utmost importance, creating an invoicing system so that you can get your own invoices!
That’s right! Starting today you will be able to go to the “Transactions” section of your Backblaze account and select a year or billing period for which you would like to receive an invoice. Once created, you will be able to print or download the invoice which will have all of your Backblaze transactions including your dates of purchase, the number of licenses purchased, and the total cost. Even though this may sound like a minor improvement it is something we are very excited about!
