Is your software actually free?
Yes really, no tricks! Our software is 100% free, no trials, no limitations, and no hidden fees. Use it as much as you want, for as long as you want, and we won’t charge a cent. Our free software includes invoicing, accounting, and receipt scanning.
What’s the catch? How does Wave make money?
Wave makes money from financial services that make running your business faster. We offer payroll services in Canada and the U.S. at a super affordable price. We also allow businesses to accept payments online so you can get invoices paid faster; we charge a competitive 2.9% + 30¢ fee to process most credit cards (with 3.4% + 30¢ fee for American Express), and 1% for bank payments (where available).
Is my data safe?
Completely safe. Our servers are protected physically and electronically. Any connection between you and Wave is protected by 256-bit SSL encryption. Wave is a PCI-DSS Level 1 Service Provider.
Do I need to install any software?
Wave is 100% web-based, so you just need an internet connection and browser.
You can, however, download and install our mobile invoicing and receipt scanning apps for iOS and Android.
Do I need to enter my credit card details to sign up?
Put your wallet away, you won’t need to enter in any credit card ever, unless you want to use our payroll service. Just create your account and get started for free.
