  • It would be awesome if when categorizing a split deposit, the next space down would automatically calculate the difference. For instance from paypal downloads, when I put in what the customer paid and then the difference is the fee that I have to manually calculate or go to paypal to find. Or breaking out deposits from several places that were mad…

  • I would love to hear from others, it seems that every time someone posts things that would make Wave more useful...someone from the Wave Team replies..."Hey, that would be a great feature, We currently don't offer that but I will bring it up with our team" Some of these great member suggestions have been asked as far back as 2018!!! I ge…

  • In this scenario, there are 3 companies: 1. Manufacturer 2. Agent 3. End user/final payer Manufacturer is not licenced to sell in the end user's geography, so bills End User through Agent (which holds appropriate licence to sell). Example: * End user invoiced $100 by agent * End User pays $100 to Agent, for which the Agent earns $30 commission * …

  • I purchased an investment property in 2019 and sold if in 2020 after putting over six figures improvements in it. I captured the purchase and improvement costs in an asset account but do not know what transactions to use to account for the sale of the property correctly so the income reflects on my Profit/Loss statement and I properly reconcile t…

    Hi-- I have been using Wave for a couple of years. It is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to make a post as I have seen a few people making suggestions as they would like it more like Quickbooks. I have used Quick books , which is a great product if that is what you are looking for. I use Wave because Quickbooks is NOT what I am l…

  • Hello, I'm from India and I only use the basic transaction entries feature along with basic P&L and Balance Sheet reports. I don't need any Reconciliation/Payroll or such features. So, after the recent announcement of Wave only serving users from US and Canada, I'm wondering if I can still continue to use Wave in the future. I've tried more…

  • Not sure why I received this email from WAVE. I use the software everyday for 2 businesses almost every day. Could this be a scam? " Thanks for giving Wave a try. Since you haven't logged in for several months, we're required to stop sending emails to you at this email address. This will be the last email you receive from us unless you con…

  • Hi everyone, I am an accountant wanting to use WAVE for churches - this way I can offer low-cost service to those small churches that cannot afford a full-service accountant. Is this a good platform and can I make as many business accounts (churches) as I need in my account? Thanks Craig

    My last transaction of $11,000 is now on hold and I have no insight into when I can access this money. This never happened before. How can I find out what is going on?

  • Hi there, An old chestnut here but one that is far more relevant now given that so much more products are being sent by courier or post. Have wave given anymore thought to developing a delivery note function.

  • How can I categorize a deposit transfer to one of my accounts from a bank account that cannot be linked to my Wave? The funds were transferred to me from an bank account which does not belong to me or my business, hence my inability to link it in Wave and represent it as the source from which the funds came from in the transfer. The funds transfer…

  • I'm looking to open a small business checking account for a business I'm starting. Which banks integrate best with Wave? Anyone have experience with Novo, Aslo, BlueVine or Radius Bank? I don't plan on much cash usage so would prefer to be 100% digital and online. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

  • Hi. I have a stack of refunds and at least for a couple of them that are within 90days, the refund option isn't available? I find the refunding of sales enormously tiresome and pathetic in this app. I love it for everything else, but its so asinine in its design. Also asking random strangers to access my acocunt to issue refunds form greater tha…

  • Is it possible to reorder items in the estimate just like you can on the invoice form? this would be very helpful since we are generating a service estimate and need to modify the order several times.

  • I have a concern regarding completing transfers to and and from accounts that are not, and cannot be linked to my Wave account. I periodically transfer funds from one of my bank accounts to someone else's account. However, in Wave, due to the fact that such an external bank account does not belong to me, and therefore cannot be linked to my Wave a…

  • I convert my monthly amazon ca sales to USD using the monthly CAD/USD avg exchange and enter this value in my Amazon ca holding account (asset). This is to account for my cash balance held in Amazon. Waveapps converts foreign currency to USD based on the transactions day spot rate. When Amazon ca deposits funds to my CAD bank I treat it as a tra…

  • How often does waveapps convert foreign currency value to my home currency on the balance sheet? Example. My home currency is USD. I recieve $1000 CAD to my CAD bank in Jan 2020 and the balance sheet shows $750 USD (CAD/USD exchange that day was 0.75). Now its Dec 2020. The $1000 CAD is still in my CAD bank. CAD/USD exchange is now 0.95. Will t…

  • Hello, Is there a way to record transaction in 2 currencies at the same time, using an exchange rate of our choice? (not the one used by xe.com) so for example, let's say i bought a tshirt for 10$. Exchangee rate on xe would say the conversion to LBP would be 15,000 LBP although, in real life due to rapid inflation in Lebanon, i actually paid 50…

  • I picked a used camera to use for our studio. How do I expense it as there is no receipt or vendor. Also, should I put it as an expense or a capital asset as it is a pricey camera. And finally, how do I set up depreciation for it- maybe at 3% per month?

  • Is this a new intentional change or a bug? I hope its a bug. I highly rely on this info to be front and center multiple times a day and having to dig for this and instead having "things you can do" front and center which I will probably never use, is just a huge step backwards for this application.
