    Pros
    The integration with QBO is fantastic. The ability to have send cheques as an option is also great when certain suppliers are still holding out on accepting EFTs.

    I love the functionality of being able to process payroll to my team. The ease of that as opposed to sending checks is great.

    I have had a great experience with Plooto, it is very easy to use and it is great you can set up bill approvals as this is a must with some clients.

    Cons
    It should be $600 Candian regardless of what the conversions are. You do this on payables but not receivables which is aggravating.

    Customer service has been a struggle for us. It is hard to get in touch with someone when we have questions or concerns.

    Entreflow Consulting Group's use of Plooto

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Plooto has certainly helped us from a workflow perspective, it's pulling your payables from your Quickbooks or Xero account into Plooto so you can see all the payables that you need to deal with and when they're due. And there's a whole bunch of approval processes you can put in place for internal controls perspective so make things a lot more bulletproof than just manually writing checks and doing e-transfers.

    Pros

    So you can currently do pre-authorized debit, pre-authorized credit receivables in U.S. dollars and Canadian dollars which is super kick-ass. It's also made some of our clients lives a lot easier if they've got clients in different countries, and it gives their clients flexibility to pay in debit or credit. Also, as far as the amount of time it takes for that cash to clear your bank account; it's faster than Stripe, and on top of that the integration with Quickbooks makes it a lot easier to manage the fees, unlike Stripe.

    Cons

    We'd love to see more international payments to more countries just for some of our clients that have people they're paying in lots of different places around the world. As well, with the international payments, if a client has a lot of companies that they're paying in the U.S. for instance if you get really costly really quickly. So I'd like to see some bulk discounts for high volume payments to the U.S.

    Overall a good option to manage Payables and Receivables

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    Plooto is a user friendly software, easy to use and convenient. I was able to sync with QuickBooks, which makes the process even easier.

    Cons

    There are some functions that could be added/improved in the reporting area and external user experience.

    It appears to have it all until you use it.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Not Good. Really ambitious to make it work I like the concept but they make it very hard to be a client.

    Pros

    I like that it can process both bank or credit card payments for receivables. It can provide automation too but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I like the price. And I like that it linked into xero. It appears to have it all until you use it.

    Cons

    1) Its not easy to use, no introduction. 2) the automation component never worked for me I know I had to get PAD on but I wanted it on for some clients off for others and this was not an easy thing to set. It also doesn't allow me to store the credit card something like Quickbooks online I had in mind but this is a complete oversight to the program. I guess if automation actually worked then this...

    Great overall payment processing tool

    Reviewed 3 months ago
    Pros

    Plooto is very easy and intuitive to use. The integration with Xero and reoccurring PAD setups are great time saving features. In my experience the customer support is top class. My concerns are addressed the same day. The value provided by Plooto is unmatched in my experience.

    Cons

    Notifications! I do understand and appreciate the dedication Plooto has to security but being an accounting firm which means dealing with many companies the notifications can fill up the inbox pretty quickly. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to remove these for security reasons. My suggestion to Plooto is perhaps enforce user notifications for 2 accounts and allow deactivate the notifications for other users. This would save tremendous amount of time for accounting/finance firms that deal with multiples client accounts.

    User friendly but wished that Accounts receivable had more options

    Reviewed a year ago

    The problem that arises is that we as a small organization end up paying for two software because some of our vendors pay by credit card so we are spending more money on Plooto.

    Pros

    Multiple options for accounts payable which makes it easy set approval tier and to transfer funds

    Cons

    I highly recommend that Plooto starts accepting payments via credit card or email AR. While this is an option for AP it should be implemented for AR too. Secondly as a 4 member organization we wished there was a non-profit pricing range.
