Kind of middle of the road - but depends on what other product you're coming from and how you use it

2017-12-10

Pros

I've used a handful of services like Freshbooks. On the plus side, it took very little time familiarize myself and get going. That's a big plus. The last thing I have time for is a high learning curve. It's pretty intuitive, but I mostly stick with the time tracking features, which provide good customization options.

Cons

Having used another similar service (Harvest), Freshbooks feels pretty corporate and - if I'm being totally honest - pretty dated looking, with tiny text and some cruft in the workflow.

Solid Invoicing and Time Tracking App

2019-01-15

Pros

Easy to learn, straightforward UI. I was able to get up and running quickly. Plus the importing and exporting features work well.

Cons

Not as integrated with some other similar tools like FreshBooks. Not quite as polished.

Simple to use but lacking features

2018-03-27

Pros

Easy to use interface, can set billable rate per team member, but also override on the project level. Can send invoices directly from Harvest from time tracked, and also misc invoices. Tons of integrations and great detailed reports.

Cons

Does not integrate with Freshbooks. Does not have time tracking reminder feature.

PayPal Business Payments

2018-11-14

PayPal Business Payments is the reason I use Harvest - because it is affordable for my company

Pros

PayPal Business Payments for Invoicing - You can choose to do an "e-check" and avoid credit card processing fee's by using PayPal's Business Payments which is only offered on Harvest, Freshbooks and Quickbooks (from my understanding).

Cons

I have no cons. It works as described. If I had to pick, I wish that I could schedule invoices to send - which may be possible but haven't tried it yet.
