    I'm getting a pretty steady income now from my first affiliate website and was wondering which accounting software is the best and easiest to use for this type of income. Long term I would like to make more sites and have a portfolio. I want to connect it to my business checking account and PayPal.


    I tried QuickBooks but it was kind of confusing to me. All I want to do is manage income from multiple streams. Organize expenses like paying writers or purchasing software/hardware, WP themes or even sites themselves. I already have an LLC formed and I have an accountant who would be open to whatever software I preferred although she pushed QuickBooks.

    FreshBooks is liberating. With it, you can create invoices, manage projects and accept payments online from anywhere. This accounting software also provides free client portals, iPad and iPhone apps, and encrypted data backup

    Indeed, me too. Excel has great templates but I do it on my own for custom use.

    Quickbooks online I find really easy to use. They are actually 2 different online versions depending on what you are looking for. They have a self-employed version which actually tries to help with taxes and everything.

    I've tried a number of them including Wave, Less Accounting, and surely others I cannot remember. Originally, years back it was suggested I just used Quickbooks. Today I am using Quickbooks, and love it. They have a decent web version too, which for my purposes, does the trick. I pair QB w/ Freshbooks, as Fresh has a great time tracker, and invoicing tool that I've become very attached to.
