Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Accept Credit Card Payments Online?

Simple. With FreshBooks Payments, you can start accepting credit card payments online with zero set up required.

How Do Online Payments Work?

Just like in-person purchases, online payments allow your client to conveniently pay invoices using their credit card. The payment is processed for a small fee and then deposited into your bank account. The entire process should take about 2 business days, and, if you use FreshBooks Payments, all transaction fees are automatically tracked in your account as Expenses.

Can FreshBooks Accommodate My Recurring Billing?

Indeed it can. Simply create a Recurring Profile in your account and let FreshBooks remember to send out invoices on your behalf.

What Online Payment Options Does FreshBooks Offer?

You can accept online payments, including major credit cards, and Apple Pay, through FreshBooks Payments Powered by Stripe.

How Secure Are Online Payments?

FreshBooks employs industry-best online payment security practices through PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance. This is the security standard for organisations that handle credit card transactions. The PCI Standard is mandated by credit card companies and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Both of our payments processors (WePay/Chase and Stripe) employ strict PCI compliance.

Can I automatically apply credits to my invoices?

Any credit created for your client, whether it’s a Credit Note, Overpayment or Prepayment Credit, can be automatically applied to invoices generated by a recurring template. Follow the steps here to get it enabled moving forward.
