  • Payment

    By M817iiiii
    This app makes it hard sometimes for clients to pay. I’ve been dealing with it all month and have not gotten paid because of this app . Definitely switching
  • Chat help

    By Office 5645
    Always there to help with their live chat! Answered my question every time with how to do something within our invoices. Have used Joist for a little over 3 years. You can’t go wrong!!!
  • Customer support

    By Mureskinz
    I am new to the app and Josh did a great job helping answer some questions about setting up CC payments on our account.
  • Still needing some improvements

    By 2Magicprincess
    I would like in the future give 5 start. But I will wait until they make a couple changes like invoices turns in receipts after finish any projects that all client asked me. The other change is give the client the ability to sign with finger, because they only can sign writing the name and it’s looks like unprofessional. Please make this happen and I will update my review. Otherwise I would go to find other better options. Thank you
  • Garbage app!

    By Alex Rumeu
    Such a garbage app. I won’t even consider it!
  • Started out great...

    By Carseat014
    It was free and worked well with good customer service. Then they added PRO, with new features, for a subscription. Then the issues began. Now for ALL the features you need PREMIUM. I can’t justify paying from premium when the more features they add, the more issues arise. And of course their customer service is gotten worse because of the influx of issues. It’s a bummer because it’s going to be a pain to switch to a new platform. EXAMPLE: Joist would allow you to receive payments online by adding a bank account, simple. Now you need to have PayPal. But, there are issues where registering a PayPal account gets “stuck.” Their response is “wait for us to reset the system every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.” So I can’t collect money at all now.
  • Customer service

    By PhDofHVAC
    Love the app itself and so far I’ve had to contact customer service one time for a small issue. Joist customer service representative made a prompt and thorough response to the issue I was having. Very impressed!
  • Small contractors must have!

    By Gary Keith
    Ease of use is so simplistic, presentation to clients is off the charts, constant improvements to make it even more sophisticated, and service is bar none! This app has helped me win 7 figures plus worth of business!
  • Great app but could use some enhancements.

    By Sm business User
    This app is easy to use and straightforward, which is great. However, there are some enhancements that could make the product even better. One of those is having the ability to underline, bold, change color and highlight fonts both in the estimate, invoice and when creating a contract. This would allow attention to be brought where needed. It would also be beneficial to have a video to show what options are available and used at the elite level.
  • has become very expensive

    By Владимир Иркутск
    unexpectedly raised the price and transferred important features to a subscription for 32 bucks/mon ! unreasonably expensive, I am extremely upset that I have to look for another program! this is not a partnership solution
