  • Horror story

    By JayKamb
    I sent a client an invoice with multiple payments. Joist charged the full payment instead of the down payment. Almost $40,000 was removed from the clients account, Joist blamed “WePay” their payment processor; “WePay” refused to cancel the transaction saying that e-checks cannot be reversed in less than 12 days. I told them to let the money go through since it should only take 2 days. A week later the money was still not released. “WePay” sent me an email saying they cannot release the money because the name “ON THE CARD” does not match the name on the invoice, however the payment was made with E-check not a card and the name does match the check & invoice. Joist has now said my account limit is only $10,000 and I have to wait another 7 business day. I still don’t have the money, I will not use Joist again.

    The more I work with the app the more I like it. The shot comings I that it had were my fault.

    Been using the app for a little while now, I feel I’ve been able to create an educated opinion. I do like the Convience, although I feel that the % is high considering I’m a pro account user and have to pay for use. I like the personalization to the documents that I can create. I like the multiple payment options available including finance options. (The details of the financing options criteria is not clearly defined so I cannot “sell” that option in an educated manner so I just use another source for financing. I also don’t like the delay in payment, for the fees associated with the app I should have access to funds within 24 hours. I would like to see a feature that would suggest an estimated cost per transaction so that I can adjust the cost in my pricing. Recently I had calculated the percentage on the incoming payment and the deducted amount was not the same calculation. All in all it’s good enough for what I use it for, definitely have some work ahead of them to make it great! Thank you for Reading
