  • 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 credit cards, and 1% for bank payments (where available).

    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.
