FreshBooks API Announcement

FreshBooks offers cloud accounting software to simplify online invoicing for small businesses and consultants. We are excited to announce that our FreshBooks API integration is now available through our Elements Catalog.

Integrating the FreshBooks API allows you to:

  • Deliver professional invoices over email.
  • Track outstanding accounts receivable.
  • Manage billing disputes.
  • Record payment histories.
  • Collect payment online by credit card, PayPal, or eCheck.

The FreshBooks API is an interface for accessing your FreshBooks account data using HTTP and XML. By integrating through Cloud Elements, FreshBooks can be accessed through 100% REST APIs, and you don’t have to worry about updates or maintenance.

The FreshBooks integration is a part of the Cloud Elements Finance Hub, a uniform API to integrate all of the leading cloud accounting services: FreshBooksMicrosoft Dynamics AX*Microsoft Dynamics Great PlainsNetSuite and QuickBooks. With our “one-to-many” approach, developers write to one API to integrate all of the leading cloud finance services for a fraction of the time and cost. Manage your orders and payments across leading cloud services using uniform API calls. Our Hub makes it easier to use or offer integrations to multiple cloud accounting services.

The Cloud Elements FreshBooks integration offers REST API calls to access customers, employees, invoices, journal entries, payments, products, purchase orders, vendors and more. Check out our developer documentation here.
