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

It's an enjoyable team to work with - they are very responsive and helpful, and helped us really find the best way to use the features.
Breadth of features suits our business. Super responsive and great personalized support.
We can now use those resources for selling. Great team, awesome support = so happy.

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

They'll have the wrong prices when we re-activate them. Instructions on the custom code to update our subscriptions were given to us 13 days after asking for instructions on changing prices.
That we didn't find them earlier and wasted so much time lookng at their competitors.
We never thought that price changes would be a missing feature for a recurring billing system.

Easy platform to use for bill pay and payment tracking

Reviewed 10 months ago

Freshbooks is a great way to pay recurring bills to vendors and services.

Pros

Easy to use interface. Easy bill payments. Easy recurring billing. Nice bill tracking.

Cons

Since FreshBooks is its own accounting platform, it doesn't integrate with QuickBooks (easily). That is understandable, of course, but my and most CPAs use QuickBooks, so using two platforms can be a pain.

Freshbooks for Small Business

Reviewed 6 years ago

I recently started a content marketing company and was overwhelmed by everything I needed to do to get started. Freshbooks made creating invoices and tracking expenses so easy! I would recommend this software to anyone starting a business or running a successful small business!

Pros

Extremely user-friendly. Makes creating invoices and tracking expenses so easy.

Cons

I wish that the "lite" package allowed you to bill more clients.

Freshbooks is a great solution for Small or Solo Business Owners

Reviewed 6 years ago

Freshbooks is a great solution for small or solo business owners. It is an introduction into accounting for your business. It's best features are it's easy to use UI and the ability to take pictures of receipts from mobile phones. The most important feature for our business has been the ability to create a recurring payment quickly. Though, this ability is limited depending on the size of your plan. It is not a heavy weight accounting program like QuickBooks or xero, but it's a good alternative for smaller operations.

Pros

-easy to use -UI -Snapping pics of expenses -ability to auto bill clients

Cons

-not full accounting solution -limited number of clients you can auto-bill -mobile app sometimes malfunctions

A great invoicing and bookkeeping software at a great price

Reviewed 4 years ago

An easy solution to invoicing and accounting without the big monthly bill

Pros

I love being able to pull reports (P & L) very quickly to see my numbers. Clients can log into their invoices at any time and pay or download (which saves me from having to send it to them). Creating an invoice is very simple. The per month plan allows for up to 50 clients, which is plenty for the time being. Customer support is fantastic!

Cons

I'd like to be able to integrate with my website instead of manually having to enter the revenue. The old system used to show in the Dashboard what money was in transit. Now you have to login to WePay. No biggie, just an extra step. Clients cannot select the amount to pay if paying a partial amount of the invoice. This is a hassle when a client asks to pay a different amount as what was set up in the Payment Schedule. You have to go in and change it. Also, with Payment Schedules, if you don't enter them in date order, you have to reenter them. Let's say you get several payments entered and forgot one, you have to go and change all the dates in order for the system to accept it. It's a pain!

I needed a platform to keep track of my expenses, invoice customers and bill my hours.

Pros

Simplicity Easy to use You do not need to have an accounting background to use the platform Mobile app can send invoices on the go can upload expenses and take photos of your receipt Great customer service Has all of the major features you need except one....and its kind of a big one. Payroll

Cons

Unfortunately, there is no payroll component to Freshbooks which I personally feel is a major component to running a business. You have to look to another provider who offers payroll which isn't ideal. One platform that supports all your small business accounting needs is more preferable.

Average accounting software

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It is useful for keeping track of time spent on projects - you can create multiple project (for example, for different clients) to see how much time to bill. You can create invoices, send them to clients, and have them pay through credit cards which is useful. You can see which bills have not been paid, and follow up on it. As it is all cloud based, you can access this data from any computer, anywhere.

Cons

It can be difficult to use. It is confusing how to bill time to different projects, and is fairly expensive.

Vendor response

Hey there, thank you for taking the time to review FreshBooks! I'm happy to hear that your overall experience with FreshBooks was a positive one. FreshBooks is design to be a user-friendly software, so I am sorry to hear that you had some difficulty when using your account. When tracking time in FreshBooks, you have an option on each time entry to assign it to a specific project (whether you have different projects for different clients, or multiple projects for a single client). You can read more about how to track time here: goo.gl/akki8o. If there's anything we can help with, feel free to reach out to our Support Team at support@freshbooks.com. ^DM

Get Paid Quickly with no hassle

Reviewed 4 years ago

Tracking P&L, Tracking Invoice Payments, and Great Customer Service are all pluses for FreshBooks

Pros

It is really simple to invoice & bill my customers. I get paid really quickly and I get notifications if a customer is late.

Cons

There is a limit as to how many customers I can have. They count the archived customers so I am always deleting my history or putting smaller clients under miscellaneous.

I use Freshbooks for my small business

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I like how easy it is to use Freshbooks to keep track of our expenses, income and to bill clients for our services.

Cons

The older version of Freshbooks use to let clients write a review of our services so we could make sure they were 100% satisfied with the job we did on each project. The new version doesn't have that feature any more.
