  • A couple of requests.

    By Arctu
    First let me say this is a fabulous app, there are just a couple things that would make it even better. Please make it standard to keep a draft of an email when sending an invoice, right now if you close the email it is deleted. Please make an option for adding multiple email addresses to a client’s account. Please connect the address line, the BCC and CC lines in email to the contact list. The way it stands I have to remember a second email address as it won’t let me copy/paste email address into the address bar of an email. I frequently send two sometimes three different people a copy of an invoice: property managers, owners, husbands and wives. Edit: after updating an invoice and re-sending it, there is no option to write another email to explain the edits or additions, the email is just sent Directly from the invoice page. It would be heavenly if there were a Calendar drop down in the description of a line item to show the date of each line item in the invoice. And so I can search my invoices by line item/date. This would help me match up materials with receipts as well. And this is just pie in the sky but it would be so cool to have a Calendar where I write down the work I’ve done for the day, for a particular client, and then hit “send to Joist invoice” but that’s just me dreamin’. Keep up the good work!
  • Financing

    By 43Beth
    This app used to be wonderful. Recently they’ve added a finance option for small monthly payments for the home owner only it comes out of my pocket after I’ve bought their materials and supplies. I am not a bank. I cannot afford someone’s home project on top of running my business and my personal bills. I added a note to my email and my estimate also states the payment schedule and that I do not offer financing. I did that in the beginning of starting my business and never received payment on the job. I suppose Joist wants you to go bankrupt with your business. If I do a 2 story and it takes me a month to finish and I don’t get paid until it’s finished I can’t go a month without pay then get a small payment while I pay for someone else’s materials. What are you guys thinking? Maybe give the contractor that option and stop changing my note on my email that says I do NOT offer financing.
  • Great app, Do not use the credit card option

    By Hcmikl
    This is a great and convenient app for sending estimates and invoices. I have used Joist for 5-6 years. However, I don’t recommend using the credit card payment option. One of my clients, Gene Simmons of the band KISS, had a payment that was made to my company cancel for no reason. WePay then closed my WePay account due to “their speculation” that my line of work, concert audio, is at high risk for charge backs. This was very humiliating for me and my company. As you can imagine, this is a very high-profile client. I took a chance on the convenience of WePay and now regret it. Proceed with caution.... Again... I am a low voltage contractor. I sell, install, rent and repair audio and lighting equipment. We even build performance stages. What else do I have to do to be classified as a contractor?

    Need ability to make logo bigger. My logo is so small can barely read it. Also need to switch where the clients info goes on the form.
  • It's free, convenient, user friendly and professional

    By Impy's Electrical Service LLC
    I have an LLC electrical business with many customers who deserve a professional and accurate estimate/invoice. It's hard to believe that such a dynamic and diverse invoicing app is free. No strings attached. The ability to text, email, or air print an invoice/estimate for my customers when I'm in the field is extremely important, and Joist offers all three of these options. Joist will also sync with Quickbooks accounts which is also a nice feature to manage income and expense. I highly recommend this app for the small business owner all the up to a big business. My customers deserve the best and that's simply what Joist is.
  • My company has grown 10 fold

    By holgatesheroes
    Awesome app teach me better ways of saving different line items
  • Was great until they started accepting Credit Card payments

    By EricBranco
    Joist was my go-to invoicing app for several years. Used it to issue hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of invoices. I got an email inviting me to sign up for Joist Payments. I figured, why not? I put my bank info in and was good to go. I was able to receive two payments through the service and thought all was well until... I had been chasing a $2000 payment for MONTHS, and finally got the client to pay it through Joist Payments at the end of 2017. Whew! Unfortunately, I received an email shortly afterward saying that my account was susceptible to a high dispute rate and, “Unfortunately, we can no longer support your business and we'll need to cancel any pending payments.” I was back and forth with Brendan over email about it, who basically said that there was nothing he could do and wished me luck in the future. It’s been months now, and I still haven’t seen that money. Thanks but no thanks, Joist. I’ve moved on to an invoice app that doesn’t prevent me from getting paid.
  • Helpful

    By Carpluvbirds
    I'm not to tech savvy, and this is simplistic in its forms and operational instructions
  • Service address

    By Glennw3
    The new feature to be able to add a service address is great. It would be even better if that address could be seen from the invoice overview page without having to open each individual one up to see what it is or keep a list of them written down in a notebook so you don’t have to go through them all.
