Our setup wizard makes it easy to connect your FreshBooks account with Chargezoom.
⏰ Setting up your Chargezoom account and connecting to FreshBooks should only take a few minutes. Most users are fully set up in less than 5 minutes.
To create a Chargezoom account, visit chargezoom.com/signup and complete the signup form. Follow the instructions in the email to log in and get started.
Inside the Chargezoom PayPortal platform, you will be guided by the Setup Wizard.
- credentials for FreshBooks
- credentials for your payments provider
- Depending on which provider you use, this may be an API key, a username and password, Merchant ID, or another unique identifier for your business
- company logo - recommended size is 300px x 100px
Following the email confirmation, you will be brought to the Setup Wizard. You must accept the Terms of Service to use Chargezoom and get started.
The next step is to enter your Personal Info. This is where you will enter your company details including name, address, email, and phone number.
The next step is to setup your Portal. The Portal URL that you choose here will be your business URL for collecting payments and for your customer portal.
Example: the business chooses SunshineDesign for the Portal URL. So their invoice links and customer portal will be accessible at https://sunshinedesign.payportal.com
Here, you can upload your company logo. It is recommended that you size your logo to 300x100px for best fidelity across the site.
The Customer Help Text will be a field used across your platform. This is a message that your customers will see if they need help. We recommend including a short message with contact info. Example: "For questions, please call us at (800)555-5555"
The next step in the wizard will ask you to select your accounting package. If you are a FreshBooks user, choose the FreshBooks logo.
