  • Hi, I’m new to Wave. I sell tea, teaware and tea experiences. I’m struggling to find exactly where to list invoices from my wholesaler and whether I have to separate each product on that invoice so that as I re-sell them to my customers, I have a stock record. Does Wave allow for this? So far, I have listed purchases that are not related to s…

  • I noticed that receipt images are on a publically accessible AWS S3 bucket, and don't require any sort of credentials to access, simply knowing the url (which is complex - but not secured). To test, log into wave and view a receipt, and then copy that url into another browser or computer which hasn't authenticated into wave, and you will still be…

Here a couple observations I had. * I …

  • These tips may be redundant but, because they persist, they bear mentioning: 1) Generate a business plan. You may know what you want but if you can't put pen-to-paper and articulate it.... how good is your idea. 2) Start small - start as a proprietorship. You do not need to incorporate right away. 3) Most people who incorporate online forget th…

I'm also a brand-new-comer to Wave and accounting, trying to move away from spreadsheet accounting. So I'm a little confused about …
