Company Background

Accounts payable and receivable are two of the most crucial portions of bookkeeping. They’re all about paying and getting paid in full and on time.

Plooto is designed as a complete payment management solution, handling both sides of things. It was founded in 2015 by Serguei Kloubkov and Hamed Abbasi and has grown to support over 4,000 businesses of varying sizes.

It’s no bookkeeping software on its own. However, it pairs well with Quickbooks and Xero — two full-on bookkeeping solutions — through convenient two-way integrations.

Plans & Pricing

Plooto offers a single plan at $25/business per month. If you run two businesses, you’d pay $50/month. Likewise, if you’re an accountant with two clients, it would cost you $50/month. All customers can send 10 domestic transactions for free per month. After that, it’s $0.50 per domestic transaction until the next month rolls around and your payment count resets.

Plooto charges the following fees as well:
$9.99 per international transaction
$1.99 per check payment
$3 CRA payments (in Canada)

Plooto offers a demo and a 30-day free trial with 10 free transactions to help you check the product out before buying. If you make more transactions during your trial period, you’ll pay based on the rates mentioned above.

Overall, the pricing is quite affordable for businesses with mostly domestic operations.

Features & Functionality
General Features
Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable is how you get paid. The more streamlined it is, the faster you get paid, and the higher your cash flows climb.

Plooto lets you add an unlimited number of vendors and customers to your system, making it easier to collect payments and monitor invoice statuses in one place. You can set up automated invoice notifications and instructions to help customers pay invoices on time. Plooto lets them pay via credit card, direct debit, and other options.

Plooto’s can also pull invoices from specific accounting software solutions (Quickbooks and Xero) for your monitoring convenience. It’ll also sync with these programs, keeping your books up to date.

Other features include payment status monitoring, pre-authorized debit agreement setup, and automatic account reconciliation.

Accounts Payable

Plooto does well on the accounts payable side as well, helping you reduce human error and chances of fraud while improving relationships with your vendors.

Like with receivables, Plooto lets you add an unlimited number of approvers for payment approval. You can also define criteria and customize approval tiers around those. For example, an entry-level employee wouldn’t be able to approve the same things that a senior finance employee might.

Again, Plooto keeps your Quickbooks or Xero books updated with its two-way integration. Most of your tedious accounting work is handled.

Dashboards

Tracking all those payments coming from a number of clients isn’t easy. Fortunately, Plooto offers a single intuitive dashboard where you can see all your clients and payment statuses in one area. No need to dig around for the information or generate multiple reports.

Payments

Being an accounts payable automation solution, Plooto offers numerous ways to pay clients. You can send money domestically and internationally. You can use checks or pre-authorized debits, depending on preference. It even provides specialized help with remitting funds to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA).

Add-Ons

Plooto integrates with two of the bookkeeping software market’s biggest players: Quickbooks and Xero.

This two-way integration lets you pull in invoices from either program and monitor their statuses using Plooto’s advanced accounts receivable functionality. Simultaneously, Quickbooks and Xero pull payment information (for your invoices and on payments you make to others) to record in your books automatically.

Of course, Plooto integrates with many US and Canadian banks and other institutions.

Ease of Use

Plooto’s platform is quite easy to navigate. With only a few simple menus to familiarize yourself with, it takes just minutes to get up and running.

Even then, Plooto walks you through getting set up. After registering, it asks for basic information about you and your business. You then have to upload a photo ID, link your account(s), and connect Quickbooks or Xero (depending on the one you use).

Then, Plooto is yours to use.

Final Word

Plooto offers effective AP/AR automation, intuitive UI, deep two-way integrations with Quickbooks and Xero (as well as more integrations with tons of financial institutions), and accessible support — all at a clear and affordable price. That said, Plooto is not bookkeeping software on its own. If you only need AP/AR software, Plooto is an excellent choice aside from the high international transaction fees. However, it is best used in conjunction with Quickbooks or Xero to unlock its full bookkeeping power.
