1. Do I have to be a freelancer to get a Payments Account with Wethos?

Wethos is optimized for independents and studios. If you're a solopreneur, a freelancer, a collective, or anyone who uses or issues a 1099 form, Wethos is your best option for a business payments account.

2. Why should I create a Payments account with Wethos?

Creating a payments account through Wethos is what powers the entire platform and keeps the cost of running your business low (1% transaction fees on ACH client payments and 2.9% + $0.30 transaction fees on debit/credit card client payments). Our banking system automatically creates itemized payments linked back to projects you scope, a project profit & loss dashboard, and the ability to easily get paid by clients and pay out teammates. Opening a Wethos Payments Account will make your workflow more efficient.

3. Is this meant to replace my existing accounting software?

Wethos helps you run your business day-to-day; invoice and accept payments from clients, pay your teammates, pay and track your expenses, and ensure that your projects stay on budget and profitable. It's for you, not your accountant.

*You can download a CSV of all your data via the "export" button and upload it to another platform seamlessly - if necessary.

4. Are there any fees involved in opening this account?

There are no fees to open a Wethos Payments Account! The only fee that applies to your Wethos Payments Account is a 1% transaction fee ACH on client payments or payments from non-linked bank accounts, and 2.9% + $0.30 on debit/credit card client payments.

Other than a huge sigh of relief that your business transactions and expenses are organized, your payments account includes:
