Updated tracking is essential to understanding your business, but it can be easy to allow filing to be neglected. Save yourself the trouble of making invoices at last minute by having Zapier do it all for you with this Multi-Step Stripe-FreshBooks integration.

Every new Stripe charge will trigger this Zap, automatically searching for the client on FreshBooks and creating them if a match isn't found. An invoice will then be created for that client with all the charge information you need for later reference.

How It Works


A new Stripe charge is detected

Automatic Zapier Actions:

  1. A FreshBooks customer is found or created
  2. An invoice is created for that customer on FreshBooks
