Crashes when charging a card on file. Will not always allow me to charge a saved card on file. Have to login to the website from the phone. Please add estimates and the ability to create and edit recurring invoices from the app. So i dont have to use a PC or try to use a website on the phone. Also, the increase in the fee by another 30 cents to 60 cents makes this very expensive for small transactions. Also, cannot edit recurring invoices from the app.

Not a great experience. We have been using Wave for several years - We were sold on their original mission "always free" and they would be funded by paid services like bookeeping and advisors. Well, it's no longer free. also, features that should be included in any accounting package like the ability to create a purchase order - we have asked for years and still not there. lately they misclassified my business and cut off my ability to receive payments. we are working on switching to Xero.

Overall decent app. I would give four or five stars, the only problem is there is absolutely no customer support whatsoever. There's no number to call, no email support, NOTHING! It honestly makes me want to give two stars thinking about it, but I'll stick to 3 because we have used it for a good while now and dealt with it, but it's obnoxious. Completely unprofessional in every way.

What's new

Receipts or Pro subscribers can now view, add, edit, delete, and categorize all accounting transactions on-the-go with the Wave app—previously only possible on desktop! If you add or edit transactions on the mobile app, the changes will show up on desktop, and vice versa.
