FAQs

Is this really free?

Yes! Lendio’s free self-service plan has a $0 monthly payment, which means you pay nothing out of pocket to maintain your account. You can create invoices, track your income and expenses, and generate your income statements for free!
However, you will still incur small payment processing fees if you use the Lendio Mobile App to accept credit card or ACH payments. It’s a 3.55% fee plus $0.30 for credit card transactions and 1.5% plus $0.30 for ACH.

Is there a free version of FreshBooks?

No, there’s no free version of Freshbooks. Their least expensive plan, which only lets you send invoices to five clients, costs $6.00 per month.
If you have more than five clients, you’ll need to pay at least $10.00 per month, which lets you have up to 50 clients, or $20 per month, which lets you have unlimited clients.
If you’re looking for a Freshbooks free alternative, consider Sunrise. It’s the best alternative on the market, letting you access expense tracking and accounting features at no cost, plus an invoice machine, tax guidance, and stellar customer support!
