inflow v3 beta

It’s beta time!

While the public version of inFlow v3 is just around the corner, for now the beta version is now available for you to take for a spin.

test driving inFlow v3

This version of inFlow v3 comes with some awesome new features, like:

  • Serial numbers
  • FIFO and LIFO costing methods
  • Batch payments
  • Customer credits
  • Per product tax rates

Plus, we’ve also made it easier for you to work with inFlow:

  • Sales and purchase orders have been upgraded:
    • Processing orders is more flexible, as fulfillment and payment now each have their own flow
    • Fulfillment status can be controlled line by line, all from the main tab
    • Returns can be managed from the main tab
    • Modifying orders and correcting shipment mistakes is much easier
    • It’s now easier to create a product or customer from the order page and save details
    • Back-dated orders and changes now consistently use the specified date
    • If you try to ship/receive more than what was ordered, you’ll see an error
  • The print dialog has been revamped to make it much easier to use/print documents
  • The settings window has been overhauled to make it much easier to use
  • inFlow will now automatically detect servers and a password is no longer needed, making multi-user mode easier to setup

Please note, even though this inFlow v3 beta is very close to the final release, you still might experience some minor bugs.

So as always, first, make a backup of your v2 database (Go to Main Menu > General > Backup Data) and be sure to name it clearly and put it somewhere safe!

Next, you can download the beta by heading over to
