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

Not enoughreviews yet

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.

Freshbooks helps you to make every aspect of your business more professional!

Reviewed 6 years ago

One of the things I really like about FreshBooks is that you can make every aspect of your business more professional. It allows you to send invoices with your brand colors and logo, right into your clients inboxes or mailboxes by required periods and it does it seamlessly as every other big app, but with the difference that it is super easy to use. Also, Freshbooks is great for automating tasks and activities, like organizing expenses, tracking and reviewing time, and following up with clients. Another aspect that I love about Freshbooks is that it allows me to review exactly when and on what I'm spending all of my business time. And that is great!

Pros

Reporting & Tracking Functionalities.

Cons
