Pros

It has a great interface which makes it feel very easy to use and has a great set of templates you can use from the beginning for various accounting needs.
For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.
FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

Pros

One of its best features is how well it integrates with other systems. It's been an industry standard for years and is a safe bet when your payment processor needs to play nice with other programs.
Authorize.net is very user friendly and easy to use. The search functionality is superb, and allows use to locate transactions with ease.
It's quick, amazingly reliable, and super easy to use. I appreciate the time value of this software and love how quickly I can collect card information.

Cons

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

Cons

My clients couldn't even ask for a refund. All they could do was dispute the charges that were on hold and if they did that it would hurt my account and my credit.
And I'm not only referencing the issue I had with the transaction limit (where I was obviously frustrated), I have had several communications and about half were less than friendly/helpful.
I would never use Authorize.net again. Any client that I have that uses Authorize.net, I refuse to work with.

Good, Just Not Quite Great

Reviewed 7 years ago

I'm using Freshbooks along with a significant competitor to them, also reviewed here. I'll reveal that in a minute after you've read the relevant pros and cons. What I really like about Freshbooks is 2 things. 1) When you send an invoice to a customer they get a really sweet-looking email as a cover for it with your logo and a quick summary as to what they will be seeing when the open the linked...
