doing what they can to protect small businesses in Toronto affected by Canadian Postal Strike

TORONTO, June 14, 2011 /CNW/ -, the leader in online invoicing, has come up with a unique solution to ensure the rotating postal strike does not affect small business owners in Toronto.

Mail delivery has been drastically affected since the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) commenced a strike in Toronto on June 13th.

"We recognize that delivering invoices is a lifeline to independent business owners," says FreshBooks CEO Mike McDerment. "We want to show our commitment to making billing activities as painless as possible. Our customers are looked after since FreshBooks allows anyone to send their invoices online. We thought this was an interesting way to help out other people who are affected and show them that we're serious about our commitment to helping everyone get paid."

FreshBooks is offering to pick up and hand-deliver invoices to anywhere in Metro Toronto area. The company has equipped a special vehicle to safely transport invoices today. This offer is available to any small business affected (not just FreshBooks customers) and exclusively for invoices.

A delivery day is scheduled for Wednesday June 15th contingent on Toronto mail services remaining restricted and for people sending invoices within the Metro Toronto region. Delivery can be arranged by contacting FreshBooks with pickup details at

"To us," says McDerment, "painless billing means that you can rely on the systems supporting your business even during periods of uncertainty."
