  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Is Wave compatible with Mac or PC?

    Wave works on both Mac and PC. We also have free iOS and Android apps for invoicing and receipts.

  • Can I set different account privileges for employees or my accountant?

    Yes! Wave makes it easy to let other people help with your accounting. You can grant access to a trusted individual—an accountant, bookkeeper, tax preparer or business partner, for example—by inviting that person to be a collaborator. See our step-by-step guide on how to invite collaborators here.

  • Can I import my data from other accounting apps like Quickbooks?

    Yes, switching is easy! See our step-by-step guide on how to make the switch here.

  • Do you provide support?

    Yes! We’re ready to answer all your questions with email support for all software (invoicing, accounting and receipt scanning). Live chat support is available for our paid financial services (Payments and Payroll).

Powerful accounting, and more!

Accounting is great, but it’s even greater when used with the rest of Wave.
