Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a fee to use Yardbook?
You will always be able to run your business on Yardbook for free. Unlike many software companies, we don’t charge a monthly subscription fee, and don’t have any plans to start.
Will you be charging down the road?
We will guarantee a free lifetime plan for those who signed up for it. There will likely be some OPTIONAL premium services (pay per use) offered in the future. However, you will always be able to run your business on Yardbook for free.
Is my data secure?
Rest assured, we will not sell or trade your personal and business information with anyone (see our privacy policy). In fact, we protect all your data access with high-grade encryption. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorized people to view information traveling between computers.
Can I backup my data?
Yes, you can export and backup your data and save it on your own computer. Here is an FAQ on this topic.
How do I sign up for Yardbook?
Simply click on the “Sign up” link on the upper right of the page. It only takes a couple of minutes to get your account set up, and we have an import customer feature which allows you to get the customers in the system quickly.
Can I try Yardbook without having to sign up?
What type of support do you provide?
We are a small team of developers, not a huge faceless corporation. If you need help, just ask! Please contact us at (support@yardbook.com) and your questions will be answered by a real person as soon as possible - usually within a day.
Where can I find a features list for Yardbook?
You can find a complete list of Yardbook features here
Why don't you offer your software package for download?
The choice to develop Yardbook as a cloud-based application was made by Yardbook’s developers for many reasons. Not needing to download or install any software was a huge factor. Updates are deployed automatically, and given the frequency with which we add new features (based largely on user feedback) this approach saves our customers much time and hassle. Many applications are going this direction, including Quickbooks as one example. Users do need a browser to connect to Yardbook - and for those who want to use it on the go, a mobile app is penned to start development at the end of the year
What about an app?
A mobile app is a popular request from our users. While Yardbook does not currently have a separate iPhone or Android app, it does work within a mobile browser. In fact, many of our pages are smart enough to detect a mobile environment, and automatically change the page layout to better support a smaller screen. Click here for more information.
Where are the tutorials?
We have a set of videos and web tutorials here: support.yardbook.com. You can search for any topic you’re interested in by using the upper search bar. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you’re always welcome to contact us directly (link).
