Why choose Fyle over Expensify

  • Expensify gives you an ultimatum: you use their debit card or pay double. With Fyle, you pay only for active users and for the features that you want to use – no hidden costs.

  • Expensify charges you for every active user - anyone who logs into their account, even if it is just to change a password. Fyle charges you only for those users who actually submit an expense report.

  • No in-app disruptions forcing you to use a debit card you may or may not need.

  • We have a highly qualified support team, who are available 24x7 over chat, email, or phone, to solve any query you may have.

  • Unlike Expensify, we won’t email your users asking them to pressure Accounting and Finance to adopt any debit card. We work with your cards, simple as that.

  • Fyle is easy to customize and easier to adopt.

  • Unlike Expensify, we believe in constant innovation. Expect monthly feature releases and timely product updates.

  • Complete control over the product – easily enable/disable features based on your business requirements.

  • Enterprise-grade security and 100% ownership of YOUR data. Your data isn’t shown to Amazon’s Mechanical Turk gig workers.

  • Seamless, customizable, and self-serve integrations with your preferred accounting software, productivity apps, and travel software.

  • We’re so confident about our product and service, that we don’t use any black-hat tactics to keep you locked in. If you’re not happy with our product or service, you can walk away without any lock-ins and easy data-exports.

In 2017, Expensify was at the center of a data leak which revealed personal information of their customers to a crowdsourced labor marketplace, Mechanical Turk.
