Win big in January! And meet our 2014 contest winners

Wondering who’s won Invoice to Win in the past? Let’s take a look at some of our 2014 contest winners!


Our December contest winner was Sasha of The Forest Bakery. Our first winner from down-under, we look forward to telling you more about Sasha and her delicious vegan treats soon!


In November, Vernon of Sound Crator Recording was our big winner! A musician who saw a need for a sound recording studio for musicians like him (not just the big name recording artists), he co-founded Sound Crater Recording. A relatively new business, Vernon has been working on construction, and building up his business with tools like Wave!

In October, Chris of Vizy Labs took home the big contest prize! From mobile app development to social media marketing, Vizy Labs is a complete service company that does it all! As a company that does it all, the team at Vizy Labs was quick to adopt lots of Wave’s tools — from accounting and invoicing to receipt management!

Mike of Castellani Photography took home the big contest prize in September! After dabbling in a real estate business, Mike decided to follow his lifelong passion and start his own photography business! Now, he focuses on his creative passion, and relies on Wave to create professional invoices that allow him get paid by credit card.

In August, we had three contest winners! The first was Shawn of IntegriMedia, who runs a computer and network consulting service. Shawn actually discovered Wave through a few of his clients, who were already set up with Wave! He got set up with Wave right away — and realized just how valuable his Wave account was when tax time hit!

Our next August winner was Tyler of PC Medic, who’s a self-taught computer guru. The more Tyler dives into Wave, the easier he finds it!

In July, we had three lucky winners — Chris, Vassy and Todd. Chris of Painful Cranium provides custom software development. After 20 years of working in technology, Chris finally decided to go into business for himself! Chris was looking for a tool that would be accessible from anywhere, with everything built in — and Wave fit the bill!

In June, our lucky contest winners were Christifer, JJ, and Savannah!

Our next winner was JJ from Thunder Bay Construction, a home repair and remodelling company. JJ’s at job sites all day, so he doesn’t have time for all the paperwork — which is where Wave saves the day.

We first launched our contest in May — making Derek, Christine and Jason our first ever contest winners!

Derek Stevenson, who runs Envision Marketing, focuses on website design, graphic design and printing. A big fan of Payments by Wave, Derek says, “My customers like having that payment option right on the side of their invoice, so I’m expecting that to turn into a huge plus for my business.”

Our next May winner was Christine Smith of LA-based Got Game. Since 2004, the company has helped thousands of kids develop basketball skills and a love of the game through camps, clinics and club teams. When Christine came to Wave, she was looking to solve a universal pain point: How to get paid. Since signing up with Wave, it’s been smooth sailing!
