    Have been waiting for this for so long! Thank you thank you thank you!

  • http://ideas@jameslaicreative.com James

    Beautiful, just beautiful. Started using Freshbooks recently and the lack of multicurrency support was my only complaint – now I cannot be any happier with Freshbooks! Way to go guys, I love using your product!

  • http://www.dazaphotography.com Vitalia Daza

    Fantastic! Being a Canadian company that uses American products makes invoicing that much easier now! I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!

  • http://rollout.ca Anita Modha

    Thank you!! This is so helpful!!

  • http://blog.lphuberdeau.com Louis-Philippe Huberdeau

    Multi-currency invoicing is good. Any changes regarding multi-currency expenses? Entering travel expenses is a significant pain point.

  • http://www.freshbooks.com/team/ben Ben

    Louis-Philippe: Right now expenses are entered in your base currency. I’m not sure what our plans are for this, other than we plan to continue improving our multi-currency support throughout the application.

    Thank you!!!

    congrats – much needed and much appreciated!

    I have been waiting for this feature for quite some time, now I don’t need two separate accounts for my CDN and US clients!


  • http://www.doctypemedia.com Jan Waldeck

    You guys Rock!!! I was sure this would take much longer! Long Live Freshbooks!

    Btw: Awesome interview here http://mixergy.com/freshbooks-mike-mcderment/ Mike!!


  • http://www.freshbooks.com/our-team.php#mike Mike McDerment

    @Jan – thanks

    @Louis-Phillippe – for the time being we are expecting you to convert your expenses to base currency when you enter them…ie there are no plans to do multi-currency expenses. So, when you enter your expense, convert it and all will be well. I hope that helps.

    @all – glad you liked the upgrade. Our team worked incredibly hard on it and were enormously dedicated to it. Since we are an billing app, this touched many parts of our code base. I’m really pleased with the work and glad to see you are too!

  • http://www.tekture.com Nathan Sudds

    Very exciting news! Thanks for the multi-currency support! I’m very excited about this — it may solve a number of challenges we’ve had lately with the wonderful integrations that Freshbooks offers… now we can just use one main account for all our currencies.

    If for some reason the new multi-currency features don’t yet fit our needs — can we continue using the existing multiple account setup? And when we’re ready to merge, can the Freshbooks team help merge previous data?

    Another very important question which we’ve been working on is… will the Multicurrency support allow me to work with Xero an import the invoices from Freshbooks to Xero?

    This is a great start to the new year!

  • http://socialmetrics.ca William

    Thanks guys! This is a great addition. Previously I had to use different profiles to accomplish this which was really annoying…

  • http://www.mastermynde.com/ Leif Jason

    This totally totally rocks. Thanks so much – this was absolutely at the top of my wish list.

  • http://www.poweredbysearch.com Dev Basu

    The multi-currency feature was the only thing that lacked in Freshbooks, which was one reason I had to open up two accounts. The fact that this has been addressed is a huge relief.

  • http://www.freshbooks.com/our-team.php#mike Mike McDerment

    @nathan – you’re welcome to keep two accounts – all good there.

  • http://PaymentgatewayforbothCADandUSD? DJ Kennedy

    This is a wonderful feature. We just signed up and that was our issue. My question is this. Now that I can have both CAD and USD do I also have the ability to add a seperate CAD and USD bank account to put these funds into for a gateway like PSIGATE?

  • http://nerdbusiness.com Schwabe

    Boo yeah ! Have been waiting for this feature for quite some time, glad to see the very smooth implementation.

  • Intime Asia – Chris

    Finally… congrats!

    For real-time forex rates it would be helpfull to get real-time data. oanda.com (me no affiliate but happy user!) is a good source for this and I think they provide some sort of feeding services for other websites.
    Maybe you guys have a chat, and let freshbook dive even deeper into the third millenium….

    Anyway, I like your services, happy that i found you!

    Awesome!!! So happy today…

  • http://www.xero.com Catherine-Xero

    @Nathan, we need to do some work on the Xero side before the import of multi-currency invoices from FreshBooks is seamless, so for now nothing changes. I’ve updated the Xero Integration topic on the FreshBooks forum.

  • http://www.homestars.com Brian Sharwood

    Does this then support 2 different psigate stores, one in each currency? Because I believe psigate requires different currencies in different stores.

    Now all I’ve got to do it try and re-integrate all my single currency accounts into one..!

    Still, as you might have guessed – really quite pleased to see this feature after so many requests and prods.

    PS – Please can you give us an update on the impact of this with the available payment portals.

  • http://boxofchocolates.ca Derek Featherstone

    I can’t even begin to tell you how happy this makes me. When I visit Toronto next, I will bring you a gift, I promise!

  • http://positivesum.org Taras Mankovski


    Thank you, Thank you!

  • http://www.freshbooks.com/our-team.php#ben Ben Vinegar

    Brian, Derek: Right now you can only use PayPal with “non-base currency” invoices. There’s more on this in our FAQ. I’m optimistic we can open this up to other gateways in the future though.

    Chris: We’re using daily rates from the Bank of Canada, but we could explore using real-time commercial services (like Ouanda or XE) if we find there’s enough requests for it.

    And now multilingual invoices, pls

  • Avatar

    Useful feature. Do not see any report or other means to track gain/loss due to exchange rate fluctuations. Am I missing something?

  • Cavan Kelly

    Great news! Now I can consolidate my little used 2nd account for USD billings.

    If I could ask for one slight tweak though, it would be to set the client’s default billing currency. Essentially, we have that now by having separate US and CAN Freshbooks accounts.

    Thank you so much.

  • Jules


    I think I may kill off that 2nd GBP account I was running and ask you to move the stamps over!

    Question: Can I easily search for all “EU” addressed invoices? That would be a great feature. For tax reasons.

    If it is not I would suggest introducing a tax zone invoice grouping function.

  • http://www.affiliate-software-review.com Peter Koning

    How does this affect our invoicing history? Can I go back and update all my invoices … not just new ones going forward?

  • Pål

    I’m with Pascal on the language of invoices – there’s not much text on the invoice template, and should be very quick to make a wide selection of languages available (I’ll provide you with a Norwegian translation!)

  • Alan

    High 5!

    Rahul: OMR is a valid currency code choice inside the app. Perhaps you missed it accidentally?

    Avatar: Nope, there’s no report for this. Our first go at multi-currency is centred around billing, but we could add more reports of this sort in the future.

    Jules: Yep. We’ve added currency searches throughout the application.

  • Mark

    I’m 100% with Pål and Pascal on adding languages, this would be the perfect compliment to multi currency support! Great job guys :)

  • http://www.argraffdesign.com Andy Bishop

    I don’t have a use for the multi-currency functions, but love that you have them.

    But I REALLY love the new account statements. One question: will we be able to download a PDF of it? Currently ‘Quick Print’ is the only option, which, while usable, is not as pretty or convenient…

    Awesome job, awesome app.

  • Mario

    Impressive. Just keeps getting better.

  • http://www.freshbooks.com/our-team.php#ben Ben Vinegar

    Andy: Not yet. Getting perfect PDF exports of our pages has been something of a hassle, so not sure when this will happen. I’ll bring it up with the team though.

    Often we forget the little guy, the SMB, in our discussions of the comings and goings of the Internet marketing industry. Sure there are times like this when a report surfaces talking about their issues and concerns but, for the most part, we like to talk about big brands and how they do the Internet marketing thing well or not so well.

      Hi Peter,

      I totally hear you on this one! It is defintiely a popular request, but if you wanted to send me your e-mail address, I can make sure we e-mail you any updates we have on the progress of this. Especially if it is ever a feature we open up in beta and are looking for people to test it out!

      My e-mail is meryl@freshbooks.com. I am just sorry I don’t have a more immediate solution.


      • http://www.dagiac.com DK Long

        multi currency expenses is still not available till now. Do you have any exact ETA for it? thanks

        • http://www.freshbooks.com Amanda

          Hey DK!

          I’m not able to give you an ETA on multi-currency expenses but I can definitely submit that as a feature request on your behalf. If we ever do roll out a multi-currency expense feature there will be a blog post about it so feel free to follow our blog if you aren’t already :) Sorry I can’t offer a better answer than that right now!

          We can discuss a potential work around if you would like to give me a call at 1-866-303-6061. Our phones are now open from 9am-6pm EST.

          Thanks so much for your feedback. It always helps us to know what our customers would love to see from the application!
