      How do I refer FreshBooks to others?

      If you're enjoying using FreshBooks and want to spread the good word with referrals, you can refer or recommend FreshBooks to others either through our Referral or Affiliate programs.

      Referral Program

      If you have a FreshBooks account, you can refer FreshBooks to others by sending an email, a FaceBook Message, a FaceBook post, or through your unique referral link. As a reward, you may get a $25 USD gift card, a $25 discount on your subscription, or a free month (up to $50 USD) depending on what's available in your account.

      To get started, use these steps:

      1. Log into your FreshBooks account
      2. Click on the gear icon in the top left corner
      3. Click on Recommend FreshBooks
      4. Click on one of the three below tabs:
        1. On the Email tab, enter the email address of the friend you want to refer, customize the email as needed, check off the boxes and click on Send
        2. On the Messenger tab, click on Launch Messenger, in the pop-up, enter the friends you want to refer, write up a message, and click on Send
        3. On the Facebook tab, click on Post, in the pop-up, customize the post, choose where to post to, and click on Post to Facebook
      5. Alternatively, you can copy your unique referral link at the bottom to share anywhere.


      Rewards will be redeemed when: 

      • For gift cards, when your friend has been on a paid plan for 30+ days
      • For the $25 discount and the free month, when your friend has upgraded to a paid plan after their trial ends
        • If you are on a Lite plan, the discount will be split over two months
        • Your friend will receive the discount on the second month of billing, after their first month on the paid plan has passed
      • If you have not received your reward, ensure your friend has signed up using your referral link and the friend has upgraded to a paid plan (and it has been 30+ days for the gift card option) 

      If you don't have a FreshBooks account, you can still recommend FreshBooks to others through here instead.
