Can’t login the recover link isn’t working at all! Lots of glitches need to be worked out.
High fees and currently low on functionality
Joust seems to offer a lot of potentially great features somewhere down the road, but not there yet. These features come at a fairly steep price in the form of %fees ranging from 1-3% plus additional financing fees if you choose to ‘advance’ a payment. If you don’t anticipate using the “Pay Armor” advanced funding, this just seems to offer me a basic Merchant account with a VERY rudimentary invoicing system and higher rates.
The ‘invoices’ don’t allow for customizing beyond client and amount, and can’t be canceled, edited or amended after sending. No where to specify Net terms, or even to add in a payment schedule. No personal branding / logo upload, or even sending clients a line-by-line invoice or PDF. When I asked about clients who might need to mail a physical check, their suggestion was to request an ACH. I can’t always tell my client’s accountants how to handle payment- why not provide functionality to allow for a variety of situations, like manually recording a payment? Checks are fee free. More ACH transactions = more fees to Joust’s bank 💸
ACH fees are 1%, which IMO should be lower if you’re also keeping your money in their bank and not accruing interest. I can’t find a place to request a physical debit card for the business account.
No timeline for expected feature rollout. cI’ll be sticking with my current merchant account’s $0.50 flat-rate fees for ACH payments and keep more of my money instead of giving it to this app in its current state.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
