You can add functions to Easy Books as you need them from the Add-ons screen. Each business is different, you can pick and choose which pieces of the software you need, leaving out the ones you don't. This way, you only pay for what you actually use, and you won't see settings and functions that you don't. We think this will give everyone a better experience using the software because it won't bombard you with irrelevant options you don't need.
No! You will not be charged again for the purchase on any other Macs, as long as you use the same iTunes account. Just tap the restore button in the add-ons screen to bring your purchases over to your other Mac. And even if you try to buy the same add-on, you won't be charged twice. Note that the iOS version of the app is sold in the iTunes App Store, and is priced separately, but just like the Mac version, you can use your in-app purchases in the iOS version on all your iOS devices.
If you delete the app from your Mac and later re-install it, you can go through the same steps as if buying the item again but you will not be charged if you have already purchased it.
The prices for these add-ons are listed in the Mac App Store in your local currency and in the Add-ons screen within Easy Books. But you cannot purchase these from the Mac App Store, they are only available for purchase from within the app. To purchase, tap the Add-ons button shown in the main title bar of the app as shown above.
You can try Easy Books before you pay for anything: it comes with space for 120 entries. An entry (or transaction) can be a sales invoice, purchase invoice, or a transfer amount from one account to another (e.g. Cheque Account to Credit Card to pay it off, or Credit Card to Insurance). Likewise, you can create customer invoices, time-entries and you can even register for our online backup & syncing service for two weeks of free use.
You can pick any of these options, but typically all businesses will need the Transactions add-on because this extends the limit of 120 entries that you can make. Full pricing information for iOS and Mac is available on the main pricing page.
If an item is available to buy, its is listed with the price. Once purchased, the item is displayed with the word "Installed". Note that if you have disabled the in-app purchase system on your Mac, the option to buy is not available. Other words may be displayed, such as "Connecting..." when the Mac is connecting to the Mac App Store to retrieve the product prices.
Some products can be turned off if you don't want to use them. To do this, use the checkbox marked Feature Enabled and turn the feature off. This will hide any icons from the main screen, hide any reports and other parts of the program to keep the user interface nice and simple. The Online Syncing is not available from the Mac App Store, but you can register and purchase directly from us or use Easy Books for iOS to purchase in-app. We are unable to offer this product in-app because Apple currently only provide consumables or non-consumables as the two types of product. The Online Syncing product is a non-renewable subscription.
The app can be extended to handle more transactions by tapping the Buy button. The purchase price is shown in your local currency. The Mac App Store in-app purchase system will ask for your Apple ID and password to confirm you are able to make the purchase. Once the purchase has gone through, the app is updated immediately.
The unlimited transactions are available for the entire Mac app, not just for one business. So once you've purchased this option, you can add as many transactions as you like for all your businesses. You can also use the product on more than one Mac for no extra charge because of the way the product is marked up in the store.
If you delete the app and later re-install it, you can go through the same steps as if buying the item again but will not be charged if you have already purchased it. Or you can simply click the Restore button to bring all your previous purchases to your Mac.
You will not be charged again for the purchase on any other devices, as long as you use the same Apple ID.
The app will create sales and purchase invoices for the purposes of bookkeeping as standard. These affect the profit and loss of the business. But the app is also capable of producing PDF sales invoices. This feature is described in Customer Invoicing along with a sample invoice in PDF format so you can see what Easy Books is capable of producing.
The app currently produces sales invoices, credit notes, receipts, refunds and remittance advice slips. It can also produce customer statements, which you can prepare from the Statements screen and send to your customers to give them a statement of their account.
Our Online Sync service will make sure you never forget to backup your important financial data! Over the time we have been selling Easy Books for iOS, we've been surprised at how many people have emailed to say they have replaced their device and have lost their data because they have not made a backup. The app does feature a very easy backup and restore system, which can be used to make a backup copy of your businesses. However, you need to do this manually and it's easy to put it off, or forget completely until it's too late.
By registering for our Online Sync service, you can choose to keep a copy of the Easy Books data online. Once you have uploaded your data, Easy Books uploads each change you make, as you make it. This happens silently in the background and does not interfere with what you're doing.
As well as providing backup, the system also allows you to keep multiple Macs, iPhones and iPads in sync. Each change you make is tracked by the system and when updates are available the system will alert you.
For more details, see Online Backup & Sync.
If your business makes money by charging out time to customers, you might benefit from this add-on. It keeps track of all hours worked for customers, and uses some configurable rules to produce sales invoices automatically.
You can add as many workers and customers as you like, and for each combination you can set the billable rates and rules about how to process the hours into sales invoices. The app comes with 10 time entry slots, but just like the transactions, you can increase the limit to an unlimited number.
