The FreshBooks API supplies everything you need to start building billing and time management services into your HackDay apps with ease. Your app can log time, enter expenses, send out invoices and get you paid. You can even use FreshBooks as your application’s internal billing system! You will need to create a FreshBooks system for your application to use, so start with that if you haven’t already done so.
FreshBooks also supplies extensive webhooks you can use so that FreshBooks can send your app a POST request whenever something happens. There are dozens of events that can trigger webhook requests, so your app can supply a rich interface to FreshBooks functions.
Our website provides all the information you need to use our API, and we’ll have a cheerful API consultant on hand at HackTO to handle all your questions and concerns about the FreshBooks API.
FreshBooks is also offering a $500 CASH PRIZE for the best use of the FreshBooks API at HackTO. Fire up your brains and find a clever use for invoicing!
Looking forward to seeing all the great applications that get built at HackTO!
The HackDays crew is coming to Calgary, Alberta on June 4th. We’ll be in the iStockPhoto offices — #200, 1240 20th Ave SE.
More details are forthcoming, but for now, let the record show that we are Friends of the West. Come out and join the hacktastic fun, building apps in a day and competing for great prizes (there will be great prizes). Stay tuned for announcements of judges, prizes, and participating API sponsors!
