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

What I like most about this software is the ease of use. It is friendly for mobile phones and mere pictures will be sufficient for processing.
Sync with my software, wholesale pricing. Great system to be organized and save all receipts to maximize deductions.
Receipt bank is a great tool for business owners and accountants. It archives the supports on the cloud.

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

ReceiptBank allowed fraudulent invoices to be sent to my inbox and refused to acknowledge this as a security breach. There solution was for our company to change our e-mails.
They send me a link to sort it out, but the link went nowhere and ended in Oops, you've taken a wrong turn. Now they have stopped replying.
Sometimes AI picks up the wrong supplier and you need to be alert to this especially for autopublish suppliers.

Reasonably easy to use but lacking a few key features

Reviewed 5 years ago

It does my invoicing and helps prepare balance sheets.

Pros

Freshbooks makes it relatively easy to invoice, and the integration with Gmail and MailChimp is useful. It's easy to track paid/unpaid invoices and view client history.

Cons

It's lacking an option to attach invoices as PDFs, which my clients have been requesting. I'm also not really a fan of the new interface.

It actually great. the best thing is, it's like what they said.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Organize my daily tasks and prepare all my paper work with the clients

Pros

The cloud base is the most favorite part. The integrations specifically trello and slack is my favorite ones as my team work on it. Also the UI is good for non-developers to use and learn, it get familiar to them very quickly.

Cons

Some time the integrations take long time to invoice, specifically with trello and team work so developers may take them some time to get the immediate task to log on it (there's work around but we hope have permanent solution), i hope i get some sort of templates to use when post a card on trello it will.

Reliable billing system

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

In our company, the FreshBooks tool is used to bill customers. The platform allows you to create financial statements, there are convenient and understandable tools for tracking expenses and receivables.

Cons

In my personal account FreshBooks can not prepare and send reports directly to the tax office. Also, the system does not have a financial calendar and management accounting functions for several accounts.

Simple billing service

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

In our company, we use the services of the FreshBook application. With it, you can fully automate the process of billing customers. It is possible to create recurring bills and autopay. Mobile version available.

Cons

The first thing the FreshBooks online billing tool really lacks is the function to prepare and then send reports to tax. The second is that there is no tool to automatically fill in the details for personal identification cards.

The mobile app is not all it can be. I believe with a little more work to optimize its performance, this can be a great app. The pricing is good too.

A must have for Stripe

Reviewed 3 years ago

FreshBooks has changed the way I look at my finances for my business. The tools available not only teach you the need to know items, but you are able to plan for the future and to gain insight into the true state of your business.

Pros

One of the best tools that I use for my daily income tracking is FreshBooks. It seamlessly integrates with Stripe to help me manage and prepare for tax season. There are so many resources and the support is simply brilliant.

Cons

I enjoy everything about the software. I was very timid at first - but once I started using the software I was blown away.

Review of the FreshBooks app

Reviewed 2 years ago

FreshBooks helps me run my reports and prepare TAX documents. I have been enjoying the app until the last update. I really love the app layout and all but its functionality is not so much what I bargained for.

Pros

I like how easy it is to navigate through the app after insering one's info and connecting with the expense accounts. It saves my time and allows for a beautiful user experience altogether. What I love most is the standby customer service– it's really been helpful and effective.

Cons

The FreshBooks app was really not what I expected. It is always hanging, slowing down user time. At some point, it stops working completely even after user login. Please look into this part again.

Pros

I like how I am able to see a summary of my revenue and expenses. It helps me to prepare my Schedule C for tax purposes. I also like how it shows me the amount of time I have spent on any particular project.

Cons

When I meet with my accountant, it is often suggested that I use Quickbooks so they can set up a Chart of Accounts.

Easy invoice system for accounting

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's a very nice software to work with, I prepare a hole project, including costs, project estimate and expenses. Every one of this items are reflected on the invoice, at the end of the project, even with a remainder from the software.

Pros

The desk of the software is easy to understand and to work with. I can navigate on a proposal, invoices and estimates for any client I want. It's very easy to deal with the invoices with remainders and keeping track option for any costumer. In addition, I can accept any payment method possible.

Cons

The only thing I find out is the invoice system have to be made one at a time, is not an automated process, because of the characteristics of each costumer and vendors, it's a little bit time consumer

Fresh Books Review

Reviewed 3 years ago

My company is a small one and we took off barely a year ago, FreshBooks makes it a lot more easy to prepare and organize my accounting books. Overall its a good product but I think I may have to get other software to compliment certain features.

Pros

It is a great tool for small businesses especially new ones. The interface is quite simple and does not great amount of time to go around it. One feature I like is the fact that you can easily connect it to your paypal account and and other credit cards making payments very easy. Being able to use your own logo on documents make them more professional and helps with branding.

Cons

You can not do reporting on the mobile app. I would be very glad if I can use the program offline. It would be good if you don't have to go back and forth doing settings for each client but rather be able to do a default setting that will apply to all clients.

Used FreshBook when it was first introduced...

Reviewed 5 years ago

It was a great starter software. It helped me understand how this type of software can make my job easier. I could print invoices, check, accept credit cards, use a mobile app and so much more. Eventually we needed a system that had robust inventory capabilities. I would still recommend for consultants, and individuals with small business and simple accounting needs. Great starter program!

Pros

I like all of it's capabilities to run my small home-business. I was able to track all my transactions in real time and prepare my taxes (sales tax, payroll tax, self-employment tax, etc. ) with great ease. This software is excellent for small to medium sized businesses

Software that offers the possibility of expanding horizons for my company

Reviewed 5 years ago

The benefits I have is the administrative capacity to support an internationalization campaign for my company, with a database that allows the management of projects that may arise with this strategic alliance

Pros

What I like the most about the software is that it covers all aspects of my company to compete internationally, send work proposals, prepare an estimate of the project, monitor the execution. Once the project is completed, invoice and collect by any available means. The most important thing is the control of expenses and the ability to make fixed payments, which allows us to focus on our work.

Cons

What I like the least is that the packages have a limited number of people with the ability to control software for small businesses. In addition, an extra payment must be made to delegate the responsibility to the administrator and due to the increase of clients, since the software starts in the jobs proposals

Love Freshbooks

Reviewed 6 years ago

As a small business owner specializing in IT, rather than accounting - Freshbooks has allowed me to grow my business doing what I know best, and bringing accounting functions into an easy to use, easy to understand system. Billing is actually fun now with the time tracker. I can prepare invoices from my mobile device, from anywhere I am, and tracking expenses is comically easy.

Pros

Easy & fun to use Amazing user interface Multiple payment options for customers Ability to mail invoices through the Freshbooks service Ability for my accountant to interface directly with the software 24/7/365 Customer support is fantastic!

Cons

Ticketing system is a little limited No Project Management system
