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

They have great features and the Capital option is totally awesome. I wouldn't trade them for the world.
Stripe is a great tool and platform, very easy to use easy to setup and secure that clients can trust with their accounts.
I think Stripe is great payment gateway for any eCommerce business. They have great rates and I find them better than other payment processors.

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 refunded customers 3 months after the purchase without me knowing and they already have their items. My customers are also upset with this disgusting company.
Fees for same country payments are too high and once funds have been taken they are then held for 14 days. Appalling customer service who basically said too bad.
They verified it was a scammer, refunded the stolen credit card, did not charge me fees and contacted the US internet fraud division with the information.

It was good, but, too much

Reviewed 6 years ago

I liked the ease of use with freshbooks, and I probably would have liked it more had I had more clients to bill, however, they charge for extra clients, so you are limited. And for $20 a month, I didn't feel it was worth it. I used the free month, and then paid for it for 2 months and decided it wasn't for me. However, it was super easy to use and it integrates with stripe, which I liked. It was more just a tad bit too expensive for what it was. There was also a bit of a learning curve there to figure out how to use it, but, once you figured it out it was all good.

Pros

that it integrated with Stripe

Cons

too expensive and a bit of a learning curve to use

It was easy. It flowed greatly

Pros

The app is easy to use. When we open the app it is clear. All the functions are easy to find in the app. The support page is nice. It is a great tool to organize the business. When I click on invoice i can see a page where I can see all the funcionalities.: customer information, date issued, customized invoiced numbers etc. I can put my logo or brand. I can accept credit card which is a great funcionality. I can automatically bill the customer, payment reminders and I can choose a lot of currencies to charge the customer.

Cons

I think Stripe is a little better than Freshbooks payments

Pros

They offer a free trial version for 30 days which is very sufficient to learn how the app works. During this trial period I was given all the features. I started to use FreshBooks as one of my clients recommended it. As it was recurring long term client, I used FreshBooks for bookkeeping and some minimal accounting functions.

Cons

They asked me to connect to another payment service called 'Stripe' to start receiving payments directly. I could see that Stripe doesn't support sign up from India. So I couldn't use to get paid.

We deal with entrepreneurs and start-ups every day and we always ask them about their accounting because it's such a critical component of any business, and yet often overlooked. We recommend Freshbooks for all our clients.

Pros

So easy to use in general and set up credit card payment gateways. This gets the business going fast.

I handle invoicing some clients using this product. I receive money via Stripe and handle invoices and receipts using FreshBooks.

Pros

- The user interface is modern and simple to use. - The information is neatly organized around projects, clients, invoices, payments, and expenses. - You are able to integrate with stripe, so your clients pay the invoices via stripe.

Cons

I could not sync with my SVB account. I tried many different ways of doing it but somehow I could not link it. It could be an issue with SVB account. I did try to take it with their support team, but we could not find a solution to it. Anyway, I continue to use the software as I found another way to input expense information into Freshbooks

Everything is great, except the invoice preview, it takes a lot of time for nothing. We should be able to disable it. Also, we should be able to put our clients credit card directly in their account to use Freshbook payments. You are losing money, because I have to use Stripe. I would prefer to encourage you guys instead of Stripe. Thank you!

Freshbooks eliminated our Accounts Receivables! It's so easy to get clients to pay quickly!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I eliminated the Accounts Receivable for an Advertising business that my non-profit organization operates. It makes it easy to do remote sales of advertising, to let them pay whoever they like to, and to keep good records. It's a no-brainer!

Pros

Fast and easy to make invoices! Easy for them to pay. Stripe and Paypal integration! Interface is clean and simple, support is friendly, and it just works!

Cons

Hard to say because it is serving so well. Maybe some integration directly into our quickbooks online, which I haven't looked into how to do yet, but could be nice. Maybe it would also be cool if you could generate the invoices directly from Gmail somehow? :)

I have used Freshbooks for 4 years, and it's fantastic. Best billing software I've found yet.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Before using the software, our billings were received 10-15 weeks late, it was atrocious. Also, I had to spend days sending bills in the mail and all that money on stamps. I get so many hours back that I can use to grow the business, rather than just managing current clients. I get an incredible amount of financial information that's easy to access, and when I'm traveling, it's available in the cloud....the best! I love the Freshbooks team, especially they are super informed, helpful and eager to talk on the phone.

Pros

Easy billing, easy to add customer information and track history, integrates nicely with Paypal and Stripe. You can call them, they are real, awesome people! Rare and special in this day and age.

Cons

The balance sheet function isn't very good, and the Freshbooks staff doesn't understand the balance sheet for the most part, it's just not a focus of the platform. Not necessarily a bad thing, just make sure you've got a good balance sheet elsewhere! I would like for it to integrate better with Strikingly, my website platform, and with online shops in general.

Free up more time to work in the business and spend less time on administrative work - like generating invoices and collecting payments.

Ability to see when customers view your invoices and forward invoices. I also like the ability to set up recurring invoices. For one-time and recurring invoices, customers can pay online via Stripe or other payment portals.

Cons

Cannot track expenses in multiple currencies. I have clients in the US and Canada. Expenses on one project can often be in two currencies. Since the system can't track multi-currencies, I track expenses in Excel.

Excellent software to save you time and help book more revenue :)

Reviewed 4 years ago

Ease of use, very quick to get set up and made both invoicing and getting paid as simple as adding items to an invoice template and hitting send. Loved the stripe integration as well as the ability to hook up Freshbooks to our CRM and time tracking apps.

Pros

Accounting doesn't need to be complicated and integrating Freshbooks into our copywriting business was pretty straight forward. The ability to both invoice and track expenses in the same app was really useful. What made Freshbooks a real winner for us was the available integrations with both our CRM and our time tracking app of choice.

Cons

It would have been nice if it was easier to import our info product sales but that's a minor issue. For client work Freshbooks is a dream. Customise their templates and you're ready to start sending out invoices, update client accounts and collect the payment with Stripe in under an hour.

The auto billing feature is very easy to set up and searching profiles is easy as well. I also like how it gives the option to select from a few different merchants. We chose stripe as it was recommended upon set up and have never had an issue with it so far.

The only part I am not fond is is the inability to look up customer profiles via credit card info. If a recurring profile is saved under the wrong name you literally have to go through every profile one by one to match the last four digits on the card.

PERFECT for small business owners

Reviewed 2 years ago

Stripe has truly been a "set it and forget it" solution for me. When I made the decision to start accepting credit cards in Freshbooks, at the time Stripe was my only option. I created the account, connected the two apps, and was done. In the last year I think I've logged into Stripe maybe half a dozen times - there just hasn't been a need to. For small businesses like myself, it's been an extremely easy payment processor for me, and I don't pay any rates outside of the standard transaction fees for credit card and ACH payments.

Pros

I love how easy it was for me to start accepting credit cards through Freshbooks using Stripe. All I had to do was create an account and connect to Freshbooks. After that, my customers could pay their invoices right from the email sent by Freshbooks.

Cons

Balancing the books between the bank and Freshbooks can be a bit challenging as Stripe pays out a lump sum and sometimes I have to figure out which client payments "add up" to the lump sum that Stripe deposited in my bank account.

Stripe was extremely easy to integrate with my accounting software "FreshBooks" and I've never had any issues with them being flagged by a client's credit card company.

Cons

I wish that there was a next day option for transferring funds as it usually takes about 3 business days, but the funds always arrive so I can't complain too much.

Stripe

Makes collecting payments easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

Use it to collect payments from Samcart and Freshbooks we are using. Works seamlessly with these products and is easy to setup. Love Stripe.

Pros

Setup was quick and easy and it integrates will a number of my third party products I use.

Cons

Earlier versions left a bit to be desired with the backend reporting. They have since fixed that and it is easy to view transactions and payments.

Stripe

The Best Payment Software For Freelancers

Reviewed 4 months ago

My experience with Stripe is great. It has allowed me to accept credit card payments from clients, which significantly speeds up my payment time compared to bank account payments. The fees are also much lower than PayPal.

Pros

I like how Stripe integrates directly with invoicing software such as Wave and Freshbooks for clients to be able to make credit card payments instantly directly from the invoice.

Cons

The only thing I didn't like is that the first payment can take about 10 days to process. But after that, I always received payment in my bank account within 24-48 hours, and have never had any problems with over 100+ transactions.

Stripe

Super easy and straight-forward to integrate and use.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Most of our business transactions are processed through Stripe and we've set Stripe up for clients who require online merchant processing. By far the easiest and most straight-forward merchant processor to setup for online processing.

Pros

Hands down, the easiest merchant processor to integrate into Gravity Forms or WooCommerce - I have to imagine it integrates just as easy with other popular tools, but my experience is limited to Gravity Forms and WooCommerce. Within Stripe itself, navigating is intuitive and easy with very friendly report tools. Looking up transactions is easy and may be search by name, email address, transaction...

Cons

I have never won a dispute - no not one - and the process seems entirely automated. While I have only had four disputes in the past 12 months, all of which were admitted mistakes on the customer's part, I submitted emailed conversations with the client where they admitted error, and I still lost. Since then, I've been told it's best to get the client to contact their credit card company to rescind the dispute but it was frustrating that the process is so automated that it seems not to favor the merchant. So, with that in mind, if you ever have a dispute, work with the customer to get them to rescind it.
