Freshbooks unleashes multi-currency billing


Toronto-based Freshbooks announced on January 13th a brand new feature to their already popular biling service:  multi-currency billing. 

Now, when you create a new invoice (or estimate, or recurring invoice), you’ll be prompted to choose a currency for that invoice. Doesn’t get much simpler than this. The appropriate currency symbol and number formatting will appear dynamically, and carry over to your template.

So here is how it will work:  If you currently use Freshbooks everything basically stays the same.  Your current currency of choice doesn't need to change.  However, you are able to use a foreign currency invoice which features a cool exchange rate widget. 

Even if you don’t plan to make use of our new multi-currency features, there’s still good news: we’ve jazzed up our account statement to look more like our sharp new invoice template. And for the first time, printed account statements will fit in double-windowed envelopes, perfect for snail mailing to your clients.

I beleive these small, yet important, changes will allow Freshbooks to expand their international clientele especially in Europe, Asia and Africa.
