I’ve been a FreshBooks user for 7 or 8 years now. It feels like I’ve been there since their early days. I’ve seen it through a lot of iterations. I value the simplicity and the reports they give us.

We use FreshBooks for invoicing.

It integrates with our services well and makes our accounting easy to manage. FreshBooks is good for generating invoices for our users. These invoices can be modified, searched through, and printed through their system.

We use FreshBooks for customer invoicing. You can easily create nice, professional-looking invoices. Once payments come in, it’s easy to track payments and what’s still outstanding, all in FreshBooks.

I use FreshBooks for time tracking. I’ve never integrated FreshBooks with Sage 50, but I probably should! I really, really like FreshBooks and what they have to offer. They’ve done a great job of integrating time tracking, invoicing, and project management, all into one tool.
President - Martin Waxman Communications
We use FreshBooks for invoicing, and we think they’ve really nailed it in this area. We are particularly happy with the mobile app for invoicing. However, FreshBooks fell short as an accounting solution for us. For most accounting tasks, aside from invoicing, QuickBooks trumps FreshBooks. Reporting related to invoicing is good for FreshBooks, but accounting reports are lacking.

I had a really great user experience with Freshbooks, and I really loved using them. When I contacted them to tell them I had to downsize my account, but wanted to keep my account open at a basic level to retrieve information when needed, they sent me a parting thank you gift! I’m still a big fan of Freshbooks!

We use FreshBooks for invoicing, and it’s awesome. It’s easy to use, powerful, inexpensive, and it’s easy to integrate your processes right to their API.

We went from FreshBooks to Xero. FreshBooks was better for invoicing about 18 months ago, but Xero has caught up. FreshBooks does recurring and backend payment processing well, but couldn’t handle shopping cart features. FreshBooks is really better for smaller operations, that are invoicing for services. What’s nice about FreshBooks is that clients have their own login, and they can just log in and see what they owe. But since our members pay on credit cards, our invoicing needs went away when we moved to an ecommerce model, and we didn’t need FreshBooks anymore. We basically outgrew the backend accounting that FreshBooks is great for. We’re happy with Xero now.

We use FreshBooks for invoicing, and we totally love it. We have no complaints about it, and it’s very easy to use. You don’t need any sort of accounting background; you can just start using it. FreshBooks is a piece of cake, which is really important for new companies just starting out.
CEO & Founder - DK New Media
I use FreshBooks for all of my invoicing. It’s extremely easy to use, and they’re always trying to improve. FreshBooks keeps track of every single client transaction I’ve ever had with a client, and it’s all right there, all in one place. I had to sue a client last year and he was absolutely shocked when I could prove every single transaction and expense, down to a $3.99 Kindle expense! And since I do all of our accounting, I need everything as automated as possible, which FreshBooks allows me to do easily.
Founder & CEO - Writing It Right For You
We use FreshBooks for invoices. It had the easiest way to set up recurring payments. We have recurring payments spread out evenly over a number of months, and FreshBooks made it easy to automate the recurring payments.
Founder & COO - Book In A Box
We use FreshBooks for invoicing, and to allow clients to make payments to us online. I like to use all the new software, so when FreshBooks came out, I wanted to use it, and it has worked out very well for us.
Founder & CEO - Sociallybuzz
As for FreshBooks, we have recurring revenue. We charge our clients once a month, and when we started, my choices were FreshBooks or Chargify. With Chargify, the exceptions were a lot harder to manage, and I also didn't like their customer service. FreshBooks, if you call right now, will pick up the phone and solve your problem. I can count on one hand the services I think have excellent customer service, and FreshBooks is top of the line.
Owner - Flow Simple
I like that it pulls in from our bank accounts, but it's often buggy and doesn't adaptively learn, so I'm constantly correcting. It's not the best by any means, but it's reasonably priced
Founder - Green Peak Labs
Freshbooks is fantastic--it’s so easy to get up and running, and has a nice integration with Stripe.
