Great for bookkeeping but I wouldn't recommend the payment processing features.

Pros

It is completely free to use is the best part about this software. It has a great user interface with everything organized appropriately. The site is reliable and I have never seen a time when it was down.

Cons

The website can be slow at times and when you go to categorize your transactions, it can take quite a while depending on how many you have. The categorization process is slow and daunting and you have to make too many actions for one transaction process. There is no way to create 'rules' to automatically categorize certain transactions. I used the payment processing feature from the invoice once and I do not recommend it, the prices are higher than PayPal and Stripe as well as you have to wait longer to get the money deposited. Limited integrations

Good place to start and I am sure if you upgrade you would have a more sophisticated product

Pros

It's free and easy to use. You can run several businesses under the one login and it is easy to add categories.

Cons

Doesn't link with bank accounts easily and when it does it seems to only work for a while. This of course could be the bank end.

Love this bookkeeping program (and it's free!)

Ease-of-use

Customer Support

Value for Money

So far Wave is my favorite bookkeeping system for my home fashion design business, number one, because it's free and every dollar I save really counts, and two, I can use it on my ipad or my iphone anywhere and do business outside of my loft. I have yet to use the integrated Payroll as well but hoping to test that out very soon. I really appreciated the online live training sessions too. I thought that was helpful although the program is already easy to use.

Pros

It's FREE! I've been spending dollars per month with two other online bookkeeping programs and this free program does pretty much everything they do. It's simple, quick (fairly quick page load times) and offers all the reports I need. Customer support is great and they have 3 live training's every week. I'm impressed with how much they offer with virtually no costs. They also offer bank and debit/credit invoice payments right in the program with 1% and I think the usual 2.9% processing.

Cons

Sometimes pages take a while to load because it's an online program. Also, pages open up in new tabs which isn't even that bad to me, I just find myself gathering up 10+ tabs then having to close them all out. Reconciling can be tricky because it's not a conventional reconcile and I find myself going back and forth between pages looking for the mismatch culprits.

An integration with Toggl and other timecard apps would be amazing!

Pros

Churn out professional branded invoices in minutes with minimal setup. Accept payments via ACH transfer, credit card, check or other manual payments. Set up automatic reminders for clients after invoices have been sent so you don't have to remember to follow up. Automate repeat invoices. Generate reports easily for bookkeeping and taxes. Mobile app makes it easy to send payment receipts in seconds.

Cons

No real cons. I do wish I could more easily import hours/wages/project data into invoices so it was a less manual process.

Value for Money

This company will not only support friendly fraud (i.e. chargebacks), they will damage your CREDIT RATING, they are extremely unreliable and the customer service is a joke! I have accounts with several different credit card processors and should have known this company was about BS when they started pulling my credit RANDOMLY. I also had one chargeback, which is inevitable for most business owners. Instead of working with me (their customer)... they held all of my funds that were not even associated with the chargeback... blocked my account... and damaged my credit in the process... even before the chargeback was resolved. This company is awful, probably worse than PayPal!!! There is no loyalty and I highly advise against ANYONE (especially small business owners) signing up for their service. JUST AWFUL!!!

Cons

This is your warning -- DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH WAVE ACCOUNTING or WAVE APPS!!! They are a HIGHLY unreliable credit card processor and willbe more trouble than its worth

Would love to use this product but am finding it too time consuming and difficult to set up and add history - I'm having to back out of where I am which means I lose all the work I've done and then I have to start all over again.

Pros

All in all, an outstanding product with a well thought out user guide to assist. I like the integration, although it doesn't integrate with my bank and I like that it offers email reminders. Additionally, I must say that the business model is very innovative indeed.

Cons

There appear to be functional and performance issues with this product. Also, there's no way to ask a question or report an issue - the product simply freezes. Error message says invoice # already exists but it's not displayed anywhere for me to delete it. Unable to add line items to an invoice without separately adding GST, prefer to see it applied to the subtotal only.
I originally set it up to sign in with Google but prefer to use my email address/ password but am unable to change it... this means signing in takes more process steps which are redundant and annoying.

This is a decent application if you want to track cash flow. Be prepared to do a lot of manual entry for business operations.

Pros

Quick and easy to set up the basics and be off and running. The software loads quickly and is responsive. Free to start. The mobile receipt scanner is a very nice feature. On the slower side but quite good at auth reccognition.

Cons

It is not at all flexible and is not easy to use variables. You can tell it is designed for the small business as an alternative to Quickbooks.

this is a very good software for small business. very easy to understand and the software is pretty straight forward.

Pros

I have been using waves for about 6 months now and I have no regrets. The platform is very user friendly and I love the automated reminder function, which has really been super effective in collection process. I love that it Also shows summaries of my company performances. I also love that it has an app as well so I have access to my information on the go.

Cons

the only process that was very cumbersome is the data importing of the previous accounting transaction. This is however the case with many accounting software. I would love to see more comprehensive reports that could help with advance analysis.

For us small people, without big budgets for administration and book-keeping, Wave is a godsend!

Pros

The price is unbeatable, but I also loved how easy it is to set up Wave, based on your business type. The automated import of transactions made it even better!

Cons

There are a few limitations on what you can do, but considering the price those are easily overlooked in my book. They are developing the product so feedback also influences that process.

My business accounting needs are not big. My business is small and provides a limited number of offerings that are easily tracked with any application. So, when I was looking for an accounting solution to further simplify and automate some functions, I was surprised at the number of products and the wide range of prices out there. I stumbled across Wave by accident and decided to give it a try. Besides being free, the list of standard features was greater than all other products out there... from free competitive services to paid basic subscriptions. Wave is truly amazing and I have found it extremely helpful. I use it primarily to bill clients: I create invoices, submit them via email, receive payments online, and request receipts to be sent to clients after payment. Wave provides notifications and simplifies all of my accounting in one place. I would not use any other product.

Pros

Wave is free, and packed with features one would typically pay for in other premium products. Wave is the perfect accounting solution for small businesses. For starters, it offers all the essential features ANY business needs... plus more. Manage estimates, invoices, and statements with ease. It even supports recurring invoicing, manage payments, and build a massive library of products and services to choose from for your estimates and invoices. Wave even manages receipts, bills and vendors to track expenses. Like more control than just simple single entries? Wave supports traditional double-entry accounting as well, for increase control of your business accounting needs. Need to accept credit card payments? Wave has a built-in merchant account feature that let's you collect payments online through your invoices. Make email invoices, or attach them as PDF files. And when you get paid, Wave notifies you. Funds are transferred to your connected business account in a couple of days. Reporting? Wave has you covered. All essential reports are available at your fingertips: financial statements, taxes, customers, vendors, and other general reports. And if your business has employees, Wave can handle your payroll. But this feature is a premium... everything else is part of your free account.

It's easy to use and when it works it's great. Generates invoices beautifully and simply. The visual display is good and easy to follow.

Cons

Wave stopped linking to my bank account. I've been trying to get help for over 2 weeks now...which makes this software pretty well useless as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather pay for something that works than have something that doesn't, free. Also - hard to find the 'send a receipt' function and it doesn't come up in search. Likewise, generating quotes.

Pros

I have been using Wave for over a year now, and I often recommend this software to my colleagues. It's easy to use, I love the invoicing, especially the recurring invoicing, and the fact my customers can save their cards on file. I am a small business owner with no employees, so I don't need very elaborate features, and Wave suits my simple needs.

Cons

Because I am a small business owner, every dollar counts, and the speed at which I receive my money from my clients is crucial. It takes FAR TOO LONG to get your payout after a customer has paid an invoice.

A well designed, modern, online accounting tool with a nice free tier.

Pros

I reviewed a few online accounting tools and settled on Wave. It had a modern design and a good free tier for my business. It's pretty easy to use, even for myself who is not familiar with most accounting terms.

Cons

The only problem we encountered was that my business credit card was supplied by a provincial bank in Alberta. It was not recognized for connection and when I reached out to suggest the card, I didn't really hear anything back for quite some time. I submitted multiple requests but didn't hear anything. Then randomly my card was able to connect but no one had told me. Up until that point I was manually importing those transactions.

For a small business, Accounting by Wave is a great invoicing software. It can automatically turn estimates into invoices, allow credit card payments and send the invoices to the clients on your behalf as web and pdf versions.

This is build for small businesses that don't need a complicated accounting system. My favorite feature is the ability to categorize purchases. I can freely move items between my personal and business account.

That it has no quoting feature. I can send an invoice, but I can't quote! What's up with that. I have to outsource that, yet another headache.

Pros

Accounting by Wave makes it easy to get started with managing your business' finances. The interface is clean and simple and they are regularly updating it, which is great!

Cons

It would be great if there were more reports available, such as cash flow statements, and options for creating trend analyses and financial projections.

I am able to bill and get paid quickly with little effort

Pros

I like that is all online and nothing to download. I also like the ability to have customer credit cards on file for reoccurring charges.

Cons

I also upload receipts and I find that the OCR is not always working. I have to spend a bit of time manually fixing the info.

Pros

Wave accounting is an accounting software that is also free. It is user friendly and has most the features needed for a small business.

Cons

Would like Wave to add in more functionality like the Xero and Quickbooks accounting apps if possible.

Time and taxes were a big help

Pros

The product was easy to use once you got the hang of it has a lot of good things about it that a small business needs

Cons

Having to pay for something that I can use for free online isn't the best option for a small business
