"Wave definitely saves me anywhere from one to two hours a week. The invoice tracking is excellent and the reporting for year end is super helpful. I can just run off a couple of reports, send them to my accountant—it’s a three button process at the end of the year."
Mike Reisacher, Film Editor
Let customers pay the way they want to: online via credit card, bank payment, or Apple Pay. Low fees start at 2.9% + $0.60 for credit cards and only 1% for bank payments.
Integrate with Wave Invoicing, connect with your accounting records automatically, and receive payments in your bank account in as little as 2 days.
You give new customers a reason to second-guess their choice when you send an invoice that screams, "This is a side-hustle, I can't afford real accounting software."
Wave makes it easy for you to inject professionalism and personality by adding your logo, branding, color scheme, and more.
You closed the deal and did the work—now it's time to get paid.
You'll be able to send perfectly timed follow-ups because we'll tell you when a customer is viewing your invoice. If you're too busy to remember to follow up, we'll help you collect payments with overdue notifications and automated follow-up emails.
My fav tool for invoicing and accounting is Wave. Totally free. Easy-to-use. And I love the interface!
