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 incredible programming for examination. I love the perception highlights since it transform drilling information into fun outlines or diagrams.
The ability to filter to the specific metric we are interested in is an amazing feature.
It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

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

Could be frustrating to use when first starting as it would give you an error message but provide no specifics on what is wrong or directions to fix it.
I find it a bit frustrating when presented with a visualisation that doesn't represent the particular angle on the data I am looking for.
Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

The application allows you to implement the power and convenience of a financial software and make accounting records, in addition to having access when you want.

I loved how my clients could pay using paypal. That was the biggest bonus. I loved that I could track my time and invoice.

A system for tracking and creating invoices in the cloud

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have been able to track all my invoices and my clients really are very easy to use and provide many tools.

Pros

It is ideal for my company I can create invoices and keep track of them and my clients, Freshbooks gives us the power of a complete accounting department in one place.

Cons

I should have an automatic billing system for my clients so I do not have to remember them and increase the number manually.

Makes our accounting and invoicing to clients way easier

Reviewed 4 years ago

Freshbooks allows us to fully engage our accounting, auditing and invoicing power all in one dashboard. And that is something that we desperately need, because efficiency in our workspace is highly valued.

Pros

I like how it has built in invoicing and readily export everything to a spreadsheet for easy balancing and book monitoring. I like that it goes readily with an iOS app so we can use it on the go.

Cons

More integrations with payment methods. They probably could expand to direct point of sale and other payment methods. But beyond from that, I have nothing bad to say against Freshbooks.

FreshBooks was a great starter product

Reviewed a year ago

Great way as an early business to get setup and able to handle bookkeeping. If you're looking for a light and simple solution, FreshBooks is great. If you're looking for something more robust, you likely will need to look elsewhere.

Pros

I liked the ease of use most about Freshbooks. It was simple to setup and get started with AR + AP activities where previous tools I had used were much more complex to setup.

Cons

There were some limits in function, customizability, and power that were given up in exchange for the ease of use. Would have liked for the ease to be there at the start but then some more customizability built in after the fact.

FreshBooks Review!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The user interface is simple and clutter-free which is very easy to use. The UI has some very interesting features here and there. Much power comes from its web-based background. The invoicing feature is reliable and gives great relief for invoice management.

Cons

The software seems incompetent and lacks functionality. It's like you can see your target but you just don't reach there. (Underpowered)

New Update isn't as great

Reviewed 5 years ago

Invoices take seconds with this product rather than minutes of effort.

Pros

I love that it's an easy way to send invoices. Without this product, I would be creating invoices in Microsoft Excel and hoping they turned out fine. This keeps the template, pastes your logo, and neatly inputs your itemized lists.

Cons

The service recently (within the last year or two) changed everything. Classic FreshBooks was much easier to use, looked cleaner, and was all around better.

Easy to use User Interface, but lacking vital features and expensive.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Clean, easy to understand and navigate the interface. Better than the Classic FreshBooks. Support Team is speedy, responsive, and helpful.

Cons

Lacks many vital features such as a Product/Service library for quick easy access to line items when estimating/quoting or invoicing a client. Customization of Invoice templates requires a Degree in Computer Science and you own a copy of Microsoft Office (No thank you). Inconsistent experience and unreliable syncing between the iPhone/iPad apps and FreshBooks online webApp.

FreshBooks literally cuts down the need for at least one extra staff!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The invoicing and time-tracking system is efficient. Instant generation of invoices that is clear to read, easy to use, and accepting different methods of payment. The user interface is really easy to navigate, enabling us to keep track of invoices, proposals, estimates, and client data. It integrates easily with all the Microsoft apps like excel which makes it easy to import and export data fast.

Cons

The payment system actually only supports very few gateways and banks in India. The percentage of my clients using and recommending Freshbooks is less than 20% and I use two other accounting apps in parallel.

I used FreshBooks for billing as a freelancer for several different clients. I was a light user to say the least, with probably no more than 4-5 clients and 2-3 invoices per month. It's easy for software to focus on power users and become very difficult for people who just need simple functionality, but that's not the case here.

Pros

is very easy to use and saves me tons of time on bookkeeping. They are also one of the only options out there that provide decent project management as well.

Cons

They have some good features. However, when they rolled out their new software they removed a lot of features without telling us. They keep telling us these features are coming back but this promise has been made for months now. For example they removed the ability to have user specific roles. Now an employee can't create estimates without having complete access to all accounting information. They...
