Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get in my 30-day free trial of FreshBooks?

During a trial, small business owners get access to all FreshBooks features (like FreshBooks invoicing, time tracking, and expensing) except Advanced Payments. So you’ll know exactly why it’s the accounting software used by over 30 million business owners. Your small business does get access to some online payment features, and you can still craft time-saving workflows and allow clients to pay invoices.

But, once you sign up for a FreshBooks plan, check out our Advanced Payments feature, which includes recurring billing. Advanced Payments lets your small business accept credit cards online and accept payments like bank transfers, payments over the phone, and invoice-free payments with Checkout Links.
