Why do users choose FreshBooks?

What would users change about FreshBooks?

The best I found in this software was the ease of use, it is very friendly to the user, the cost is very good too. Is a very good value for the money.

Manuel D.

For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.

Duncan W.

Ease of use, simplicity, and reliability. I love how easy it is to access, upload information, and navigate through the site.


John V.

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.

Steve H.

It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.


Jeff B.

Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

Simple, yet powerful cloud based invoicing with project management

Reviewed 5 months ago

We still love Freshbooks for our day to day use. We use the totals and tax reports for our accountant who use another product to do the "real" accounting. We use this for billing and the clients love it.


When we were small, we would use Freshbooks exclusively for invoicing (recurring is a life saver) and project management for invoicing our time. We love the payment reminders (30, 60, 90 days)


Ticketing system was poor, so we use another program that will sync with Freshbooks.

Best Project Management for Small Business

Reviewed 9 months ago

If you ask me for a rating, I would give 8 out of 10. With a huge amount of features like invoicing, Client Portal, Contact Management, Expense Tracking, Project Management make your business easy to manage. For people who are trying to start a new business, I would recommend the FreshBooks at first.


FreshBooks is very easy to use and has so many features that help you manage your business in a short time. They have excellent customer services. The most fascinating thing about FreshBooks is it has also mobile app and the UI design is so eye-catching. They create attractive invoices for clients. Another coolest feature of FreshBooks is "Proposal". This feature allows you to show the work and writing space and attach your customize pictures.


Although you can hardly find cons in FreshBooks. But sometimes something grabs notice. I think the least likable thing about FreshBooks is limiting users. Only one user can use FreshBooks. And the other one is the price. I think as a small business management tool, it is a little expensive than others.

Not for everyone, or even most...

Reviewed 6 years ago

I've been using Freshbooks for the last couple of years, and at first it was a breath of fresh air after getting away from Quickbooks (both online and desktop version prior to that). If you don't have a proficiency for accounting, systems like Freshbooks are great, so I enjoyed the simplicity of it. The problem is - it's just way too simple and there are some major gaps in functionality. Additionally,...


Freshbooks gets plenty right. Tracking billable time against customers or customer projects is a breeze, and their invoicing and methods for collecting payments is really hard to beat. Plus, they integrate with so many other services, it makes it really easy to get addicted to. The things I love most - and the main reasons I'm glad that I left Quickbooks for Freshbooks is: Automated invoice...


No connections to your banking / credit card accounts. You can do this with expenses to some extent, but it's just awful to work with, when compared to Quickbooks, Xero, FreeAgent - pretty much anyone else. In order to use Freshbooks, you have to have some other software or service for managing the accounting aspects of your business. This ended up being a bad thing for me. I like having it all connected,...

A Game Changer

Reviewed 4 months ago

I found it to be incredible it does what I need it to do, better than anyone else.


I use this to bill clients, send invoices, and to track time. This tool is incredible for how I use it. It does everything better than I could dream or need it to perform.


I pay for everything else, I might find a need to use it one day, but for me: the software is perfect.
