    Pros
    This is great software if your just starting out. Perfect for bookkeeping and invoicing.
    Very friendly, easy & comfortable to use and love the support team. If you need any help getting your books setup, the onboarding team is AWESOME.
    It's been a great system to build our billing and invoicing process on and I don't know of any others out there that are any better.
    Cons
    The cost of goods sold is confusing and difficult to use, the voided invoices can't be reviewed and the expenses are difficult to post as well.
    The only drawback for my company is the the inability to run payroll.
    They are missing a lot of features that you would normally find in this type of software such as integration.

    Great Program! Simple & Easy to Use

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    It has helped me exponentially in balancing my books and keeping me on track.

    Pros

    I love how easy it is to use. As a former quickbooks user, I was tired of how complicated they were for smaller businesses and just didn't like the look of it overall. Using Sunrise is very simple and has everything I need as a small business owner. I love how it integrates and matches my expenses and payments with my bank account, credit card and invoices.

    Cons

    The only process I found difficult was when I have made a return of a product. Trying to reconcile that was not as simple as I feel it could be.

    Vendor response

    Wow, Chris, we appreciate you leaving such a glowing review. We aim to take the power of bookkeeping and put it in the hands of our customers in a simple and easy-to-use platform. Instead of hours trying to figure out your bookkeeping, we want to give you back that time, so you can focus on growing your business. Truly, we are lucky to have such wonderful customers like yourself. Thanks again for the feedback.

    SURPRISE

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I will say I have been over impressed with Sunrise and my bookkeeper [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] . As other businesses right now are probably thinking, how do I get the data, continue to pay for ancillary services like Sunrise, do I get rid of it? We are nervous and scared about our small business on a regualr basis. I will day Sunrise has stepped up and been a huge help in this regard. The partnership with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been so amazing and so needed In these times when all I am thinking about is how do I keep this business open and what are our numbers saying. Again I was so torn about keeping this service because how we pay for this during these times but it there is one area I'm happy we decided to keep its Sunrise.

    Pros

    The ability to populate the data in a time right now accurately and time is super important. This has been very helpful

    Cons

    so far so good. I am constantly looking for faults. I would like to see the mobile application much more user friendly and accessible.

    Vendor response

    Thank you, Anthony, for your amazing 5-star review. We strive to assist business owners in the best way possible. This means making our tool intuitive and reliable. We are so happy to hear that your bookkeeper was able to organize your accounts quickly and thoroughly. We are lucky to have her on our team. Thank you again for your feedback.

    Terrible bait and switch

    Reviewed a year ago

    The product used to be good, but now it's just full of annoying upsells and pushing Lendio's credit product at every chance. The UI has gotten more confusing over time, they really don't have the user experience in mind when developing the product.

    Pros

    The UI used to be good, but it's been going downhill recently.

    Cons

    What I like the least is the company that currently owns Sunrise and the way they have been treating early adopters... Lendio acquired an accounting product originally called Billy, and renamed it Sunrise. First, they kicked out all the users outside the US and Canada (despite them paying for a lifetime license). Over the past few months they have started forcing early adopters to pay monthly for a product they already purchased a lifetime license to. It would be fine to charge for new features, but they are forcing users to pay for already existing features (e.g. you can't modify your existing invoice templates without paying again, for example, nor sync transactions with PayPal, and more). I'm sure this is legal and all, but it's not a nice way to treat customers... 👎

    Easy to use Accounting Foundation, Impressive Road Map

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Billy is a small business accounting lifesaver. I love how Billy saves me time in day-to-day operations and keeps me compliant with my books. My accountant even loves Billy (and she used to recommend that "books" software). Thank you Billy!

    Pros

    For the first time in 20+ years accounting is not a frustrating and overly expensive task. Billy has provided my companies a easy to use and nearly complete solution that does not cost a fortune or hold me hostage. Using Billy has saved me countless hours each month for the past 18 months. It's streamlined and logical workflows, dead simple invoicing, and reasonable fees make Billy a real winner for small business.

    Cons

    The only gotcha with Billy is their integration with PayPal accounts is not as clean as it could be. The company is on the right track and should have this issue resolved shortly. The support team at Billy has been fantastically helpful and understanding. They not only know accounting, they know how to help people.
