FreshBooks Review: The BEST Accounting App for Small Businesses (Like Yours!)

  1. I’m a little confused about what you mean by it doesn’t accept PayPal. Don’t many clients use PayPal? If a client wanted to pay you with PayPal, what happens? You have to download a different software? They have to use a different payment method? What if you are using PayPal to receive payments? Do you need a separate payment account for each client depending on what they are using to pay? I mean, I don’t love PayPal so I would be willing to try something else. I’m just not really sure what this means, and what you need to do differently if someone does want to use PayPal, no exceptions.

    1. Hi, Lori! If a client wants to pay using PayPal, you don’t have to download software. You can create a business account on their website for free. I have clients that feel more comfortable paying with PayPal, and it’s not a big hassle offering them this option. 🙂

      1. Maria, in that situation would you just add your paypal email to your invoice as an option? Send a separate invoice once the client says they’d rather use PayPal? I’m days away from setting up my Freshbooks account so I’m super curious about everything billing related. 🙂

        1. Others may do it differently, but what I do is send them a regular invoice from my main invoicing program, such as Freshbooks. Then I will send them an invoice from PayPal and reference the invoice number from Freshbooks. Once they pay from PayPal, you can go and manually enter it as paid in Freshbooks. For more questions about the features in Freshbooks, I encourage you to contact their customer service. Good luck! 🙂

  2. I’m glad you feel it was an upgrade. I’ve hit upon several bugs and can’t believe how they’ve mangled invoices in this new version. I used to be able to print PDFs of those invoices which looked identical to online version. Now, not only do they look amateurish, but they no longer contain link to get paid, recurring invoices don’t contain my logo, and are branded with default colors. Very disappointed with what was a fantastic product.
