Is FreshBooks right for my business?
FreshBooks is an affordable and flexible option for small to medium-sized businesses. However:
- If you run a large enterprise, especially with more than 500 clients, you may want to explore a more robust system like Quickbooks.
- FreshBooks is designed for businesses that generate revenue by providing services. If you run a retail or online e-commerce business, you won't get as much value out of this program.
