Ratings and Reviews
No help from customer service
I downloaded zip books to keep track of the child support my ex owes me (and sometimes pays me). I figured to just backdate invoices for anything not current and then I will just put the payments in and backdate those as well. Well it turns out I can't seem to put payments in without actually accepting an electronic payment.
So I messaged "Brad" in the text box on the website asking him how I submit cash payments. So he says this: "i strongly encourage you to not mix personal and business expenses in the same account. It isn't designed to do that well and it violates sound accounting principles"
WTH kind of answer is that?? Not only did he not answer my question, he totally assumed what I was using the program for. Since when does he have the right to tell me how to use the software? His opinion shouldn't matter, I asked him a question about the software he should answer said question. That's like me asking him how I make an invoice and he says "you should not make invoices for buying and selling drugs".
Guess I'm finding another software to use. Wtg zipbooks. this will also be posted on your Facebook page.
Great when it works
The app doesn't reflect the latest in the system. Can't perform remove client action in the app. Gives errors and crashes at various times.
The online app on a browser is buggy as well. Pages don't load, freeze, or show incorrect layouts. It took me 3 hours just to add 3 bank accounts, mostly due to errors or bugs in the system.
It does work sometimes. And when it does, it works really well. I really hope these bugs are ironed out quickly as it's really well designed and would make for a fantastic accounting app and platform.
No Cost, No Ads, Generous SaaS
ZipBooks is a very generous, clean, and intuitive accounting SaaS (software as a service) that runs completely into the cloud. It’s 100% free without any advertising banners of any kind on the web or its app. If you choose to get a premium membership or start accepting credit cards through ZipBooks, there is a charge, but it’s incredibly affordable even in that regard. I’ve been using ZipBooks for over a year, and I have no complaints. The one time I had an issue with the site (I found a bug), support reach out promptly and politely within a few hours to fix the issue, and I only have the free membership. Thank you, ZipBooks! I will be referring others to you!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
