Recommendations for Invoicing App


For the past couple of years I've been using Pancake for invoicing but now I'm reevaluating invoicing apps.

So far I've looked at:

  • Freshbooks
  • BlinkSale
  • Harvest

Any others I should be looking at?

Ideally, I'd like to integrate with Stripe (or Dwolla). Pancake was great because I could add surcharges to different payment methods.

I use Freshbooks and haven't found a better alternative yet.

Here are some others I benchmarked before going with Freshbooks:

  • FYI, Ronin is now owned by GoDaddy (which was the reason I stopped using them). – Bruce Schwartz 5 years ago
  • Thanks for the heads up about Ronin, Bruce! - Patricia, what made you say no to Wave? the surface it looks pretty good. About to dive in more detail. – Lindsey Wilson 5 years ago
  • @Lindsey, Freshbooks supports many payment processors, while Wave only supported Stripe at the time (maybe they support more now). – Nishank Khanna 5 years ago
  • I was using Paypal as the processor and Wave doesn't support them. – Patricia Wright 5 years ago
  • I would recommend Wave. It's free so no risk of giving it a try. – Chrissie Gray 5 years ago


Another one to look at is Xero.

The two most popular ones are still Freshbooks and Wave. Here's a comparison on GetApp.
