    Incompetence or fraud? You decide. I tried their service in 2015 ONLY to recover eBay sales tax data required by law to be reported and paid to the state of California. Outright was bought by GoDaddy, but they continue to bill me every year for an Outright renewal that I never ordered or authorized. The incompetent GoDaddy service staff cannot service old Outright account numbers to stop the billing. eBay told me that their third party vendors control billing for their services. GoDaddy is largely a worthless service without customer service, so avoid them.

    I think you’ve got some great information here, but it’s always important to decide on what is best for your business and your needs. the GoDaddy Online Bookkeeping solution may be good for small businesses, but can it handle businesses such as busy cafes and restaurants? Overall, it might help people get started. It’s always best to review what you need and the type of features your business requires out of bookkeeping software.

    I sell on Amazon, Etsy, eBay, WalMart.com, and Jet. GoDaddy Bookkeeping imports all of my sales and I mark the bulk payments as a Transfer In once, and mark it to do that each time. I wouldn’t say it’s seamless, but it definitely makes life much easier. I tried to wrap my head around QuickBooks, but it’s more than my brain can handle. This is easy enough for someone who knows nothing about bookkeeping, yet does the books for a 600K a year company and turns everything over to the accountant at tax time.

      If you have a little business on the side, or in addition to your F/T job, then GoDaddy Bookkeeping is an affordable solution. However, if you have an online business and are doing substantial transactions it is best to get professional advice.

      This book keeping software does not do what they promise. Great for personal use but not for business. I was out of the refund window didn’t have time to test it. “which I realize” I was in the wrong. But they didn’t offer to give me store credit or anything. Got the software started using quickly realized I made a mistake this software is very limited for what it provides. Not useful for my type of business. I worked with support rather try to improve product they say well your outside your refund window. Not as good as it was when it was outright. I will slowly be moving my domains away from them.

        Can you suggest any alternatives for the 1-2 person small business?

          Hi Laura,

          It depends what exactly you need for your business–there are lots of great alternatives out there, but which one will be best for you depends on your specific needs. If you don’t process more than 5 invoices a month, check out Xero‘s starter package (this has the advantage that you can easily upgrade as your business grows, and it’s one of the best cloud accounting solutions out there). Alternately, Wave is a free service, and while it lacks Xero’s bells and whistles, it’s got most of the basics (plus you can handle both business and personal accounting within the platform). You also might check into QuickBooks Online, FreeAgent, and Zoho, but those will cost a little more. QuickBooks Self-Employed is software along the lines of GoDaddy Online Bookkeeping, but it’s got a lot of limitations, and I can’t currently recommend it for most users. Still, you can always check it out and see if it offers what you need.

          Finally, I’d suggest you take a look at this article on choosing accounting software–it’s a step-by-step guide that can help you figure out the best software for your business. We also offer consulting services, so if you decide you’d like additional guidance, drop us a note to learn more.
