Pricing

Pricing for Easy Books is broken down into add-ons, rather than an up-front fee. This means you only pay for features in the app you use.

There are two apps available, one for iOS and another for macOS. The iOS app runs on any iOS device (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch). The Mac app runs on any Mac running macOS.

The two apps are compatible with each other, and are charged separately to make them affordable to smaller businesses. You won't be charged twice within the same family of devices, so all your add-ons for iOS will run on all your iOS devices. Similarly, all your add-ons for the Mac app will run on all your Macs at no extra charge.

What Add-ons are available?
  • Unlimited Transactions - An entry that transfers money between accounts is called a "Transaction" in Easy Books. For example, purchasing a book of postage stamps would be entered as a transaction to record the date, amount paid and to classify the type of purchase. The app comes with space for 60 transactions so you can try it out and see whether you like using it. The limit can be removed completely by purchasing this add-on. This is a one-time purchase, after which you can add as many entries as you like in any of your businesses. Most businesses purchase this add-on after they make the decision to use Easy Books.

  • Customer Invoicing - The app will create sales and purchase invoices for the purposes of bookkeeping as standard. This add-on allows you to send your estimates, sales invoices and statements to your customers in PDF format. You can change the labels on the invoice, set your own company logo and even add your signature if you need to. The app adds a DRAFT watermark which allows you to use all the features of creating invoices, setting your company logo, sending them by email (to yourself) and so on. When you're happy the feature works well for you, purchase this add-on to remove the watermark. Again this is a one-time purchase and removes the watermark from all invoices and all businesses.

  • Time-Tracker - 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 space for 10 entries, but you can remove the limit by purchasing this add-on. This is a one-time purchase, after which you can add as many time entries as you like in any of your businesses.

  • Foreign Currencies - If you have a bank account in a foreign currency you can set it up in Easy Books in its own currency. If a supplier invoices you in a different currency, you can do the same. Easy Books handles 150+ currencies with exchange rates updated hourly. It also tracks historical rates, just add transactions and let Easy Books find the rate applicable at the time. The value of these accounts when converted to the business currency changes as exchange rates fluctuate, but Easy Books will keep track of the exchange rate gains or losses and record them in the financial reports so you don't have to worry.

  • Online Sync - 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, we've been surprised at how many people have contacted us to say they have replaced their device and have lost their data because they have not made a backup. The app features 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 your Easy Books data online. Once you have turned on syncing for your business, Easy Books sends 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 devices (iPhones, iPads and Macs) in sync. Each change you make is tracked by the system and sent to your other devices.

    You can try the service out for two weeks for free, just register for an account at sync.easybooksapp.com.

    Note: Purchasing this add-on provides six months of service. The service is developed, maintained and managed by us. Unlike other add-ons, purchasing a subscription to the service makes it available to all types of devices running Easy Books whether Mac or iOS.
How do I purchase an add-on?

Add-ons are purchased from within the app.

iOS Device (iPhone, iPad)

On iOS, go to the Easy Books menu screen. On an iPad you may find it easier to hold the device in landscape. Tap Add-ons to display the Add-ons screen.

Choose the add-on you would like to purchase and click the Buy button. You will be asked for your Apple ID and password. Make sure you use the same Apple ID as you used when downloading the app.

Mac

On a Mac, use the Easy Books menu bar at the top of the screen. Click on Easy Books > Add-ons to display the Add-ons screen.

Choose the add-on you would like to purchase and click the Buy button. If you downloaded Easy Books from the Mac App Store you will be asked for your Apple ID and password. Make sure you use the same Apple ID as you used when downloading the app otherwise the purchase will fail. If you downloaded Easy Books from the web site you will can pay easily using a credit card. You will receive an email confirmation which contains your order number. Keep this email for future reference because you can use it to restore all your purchases onto a new Mac.

How do I restore past purchases for iOS?

Easy Books In-App Purchases Add-ons screen If you have purchased add-ons from within the iPhone/iPad app, you can use these on another iOS device and you won't be charged again for the same add-on. Purchases made on other platforms cannot be restored to iOS.

To restore the purchases on another device, just go to the Add-ons screen (using the add-ons button shown above the main navigation list) and tap the Already Purchased? button. This requires a network connection to Apple's servers and restores all your previous purchases to the device.

Even if you attempt to re-purchase the same add-on, you won't be charged twice. You will be able to re-download the add-on for free if you have already purchased it because purchases are linked to your Apple ID.

Restoring Purchases: Troubleshooting

  • Only purchases made in Easy Books for iOS can be restored to other iOS devices. (The Mac and iOS apps are priced separately).

  • Your device has Restrictions turned on. If you have disabled in-app purchasing using the restrictions settings on the device it will not be possible to restore past purchases.

  • A different Apple ID was used to purchase add-ons. Apple will only restore purchases to the same Apple ID. It isn't possible to move purchases made on one Apple ID to another. In these cases, make a full backup using Easy Books, delete the app, sign out of the App Store and re-download Easy Books using the correct Apple ID.

  • In-app purchases made on one Apple ID cannot be transferred or shared with another Apple ID. Find out what's included in Family Sharing.

  • There is a problem with your Apple account. Apple store your credit card information linked to your Apple ID. If your credit card has expired, you haven't accepted Apple's latest terms, or any of your account information is no longer valid the purchase will be rejected by Apple. To investigate, view your Apple account information and check for accuracy. You may need to contact Apple support by visiting their support page.

How do I restore past purchases for Mac?

Easy Books for Mac In-App Purchases Add-ons screen If you purchased add-ons for the Mac app, you can use these on your other Macs. Purchases made on other platforms cannot be restored. The process of restoring purchases is the same whether you downloaded the app directly from the web site, or from Apple's Mac App Store. Use the menu bar at the top of the screen and click Easy Books > Add-ons to display the add-ons screen. Then just click Already Purchased? and enter the details.

Note: Any purchases made using the Mac App Store edition can only be restored in the same edition and similarly for the Website edition. So make sure you are running the same edition on all your Macs.

Restoring Purchases: Troubleshooting

  • Only purchases made in Easy Books for Mac can be restored to other Macs. (The Mac and iOS apps are priced separately).

  • A common problem restoring purchases on the Mac is caused by switching editions. In other words you originally purchased add-ons from the Mac App Store edition of the app but downloaded the app from the website to a new Mac. Or vice-versa. If you purchased direct from the website edition, you will have received an order number from Fastspring, our payment company. The order number looks something like "EB13120Y-3558-81122". Apple order numbers start with "M". Use iTunes to review your purchase history with Apple. To find out the edition you are currently running, open Easy Books and choose About Easy Books from the Easy Books menu. If you find you are using the wrong edition, delete Easy Books from your Applications folder, then download it from the website or from the Mac App Store as appropriate.

  • (Mac App Store edition only). You have changed your Apple ID. Apple will only restore purchases to the same Apple ID, and it isn't possible to move purchases linked to one Apple ID to another. In these cases the app must be deleted from the Applications folder, then the Mac App Store app is used to sign out, before re-downloading the app using the correct Apple ID.

  • (Mac App Store edition only). In-app purchases made on one Apple ID cannot be transferred or shared with another Apple ID. Find out what's included in Family Sharing. However, purchases made in the website edition are linked to your email address. For business purchases, you can restore them to other Macs the business owns using this and your order number. If you already have add-ons installed in Easy Books (Mac App Store edition), find out how to transfer to the website edition.

  • (Mac App Store edition only). There is a problem with your Apple account. Apple store your credit card information linked to your Apple ID. If your credit card has expired, you haven't accepted Apple's latest terms, or any of your account information is no longer valid the purchase will be rejected by Apple. To investigate, view your Apple account information and check for accuracy. You may need to contact Apple support by visiting their support page.

Can I use the add-ons I purchased in iOS on my Mac?

No, add-ons purchased on one platform cannot be restored to another. Charging per-platform allows us to reduce the pricing for each, which makes it more affordable to new businesses.

Easy Books for iOS can be used on any "device", by which we mean an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and any iOS device that can purchase using in-app purchases from the iTunes App Store.

Similarly, purchases made in Easy Books for Mac can be restored on another Mac you own.

Although Easy Books for macOS is compatible with the iOS app, it isn't the same app. It was completely re-written for the Mac platform. In the iOS and Mac App Stores, there is a contractual requirement that it should not be possible to unlock content in the app unless this is via the respective App Store. Note that these two app stores are treated separately in Apple.

Apart from contractual reasons, the development and ongoing support of these applications is a big investment of time and money. We need to keep the lights on just like any other business. We aren't trying to build up a huge user-base and sell out to the highest bidder. We have loyal customers who love using the app, and we want to be there in the future to support them. To grow a sustainable business we need to charge for the software. We are working hard to add more features in response to user's feedback, and it's all funded by ongoing sales.
