How do you keep books for a small business?

Can my clients automatically pay their invoices?

Clients receiving an invoice with line items for subscription-based products or services will find it easy to save their credit card, banking, or other payment details on the FreshBooks invoice software so they’re automatically billed each time an invoice comes due. Imagine doing this without invoicing software—dealing with paper invoices and receipts and having to keep track of phone and address records separately.

Automatic invoicing in FreshBooks with Recurring Payments makes it simple for clients to pay and for you to accept payments for products or services rendered. Recurring Payments works together with Recurring Templates to automatically bill clients every time an invoice is generated and sent.

Saved payment information can always be removed if your clients want to opt out of Recurring Payments at any time.
