Loved by owners, managers, and teams everywhere ♥

I do a lot of off-site events, like birthday parties. With the mobile GPS clock-in feature in Homebase Essentials, I can just have my employees clock in once they get to the event location, rather than having them clock in at the store first, lowering my labor costs.

Pricing FAQs

  • Is your scheduling and time clock really free?

    Yes. We believe that every business should be able to move off of paper--not just the ones willing to pay $100 a month. We’ve built the best scheduling and time clock tools to help you handle the basics of running your business for free. We will continue to release new team management tools and services for businesses that would like to do more.

  • Is there any per-employee charge?

    No! Our paid plans are charged on a per-location basis. This way you don’t need to worry about whether your bill is going to change from month to month, or with changes to your staffing.

  • Do you offer a refund?

    If you're not happy, we'll do our best to make it right. Please reach out to us if you're having any trouble or are looking for a specific feature. If you're on a monthly plan and want to cancel your account, we'll provide a pro-rated refund for any pre-paid subscription fees. If you're on a discounted annual payment plan, we aren't able to offer a refund.

How can employees clock-in on the free version?

There are 3 ways to clock-in using Homebase.

1. Our free time clock app on any iPad or Android tablet

2. Our GPS mobile time clock (requires Essentials plan)

3. An online time clock your employees can log into (requires Essentials plan)

  • Is there any charge for the mobile app?

    Absolutely not! We will never charge employees. Period.

  • Do you offer special pricing for non-profits?

    We are proud to offer a free basic version of our software for all companies and nonprofits which includes basic time and break tracking, scheduling, and a free mobile app for your team. We also offer a 20% discount if you choose to upgrade to a paid plan and sign up for the year. 

    We do not offer any additional special pricing for nonprofits on our paid plans.

  • How does Homebase per location pricing work for my business with employees in the field?

    If you are not a business with a physical retail location (like construction or home health) we still most definitely can work for you! Learn more here.

  • Do you offer a-la-carte pricing for certain features or an API?

    We do offer API access on our Enterprise plan, which allows you to integrate Homebase features into other software you're using to run your business. We do not offer a-la-carte pricing for specific features.

    Can I see a demo?

    Absolutely! You can test out Homebase yourself using a demo business here. Or you can get a live walk-through of Homebase during our free live web demos, where you'll be able to get answers to your questions from a member of our customer success team.
