How to get started with mobile invoicing
To start sending mobile invoices, you can use tools like QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Payments. If you plan to accept payments from your smartphone, a mobile credit card reader makes it easy to accept credit card payments on the go.
If you’re a QuickBooks customer, the GoPayment app syncs all of your payment data to your books. You can use mobile invoicing as little or as much as you’d like.
Typically, mobile payment solutions will give you a card reader for free. GoPayment’s card reader accepts chip and magstripe cards, connects wirelessly via Bluetooth, and is lightweight and portable. You can upgrade to accept Apple Pay and Android Pay.
You will not need to pay upfront fees.
Most platforms offer pay-as-you-go models, with a small percentage and flat fey. For instance, QuickBooks Payments charges 2.4% + $0.25 per swipe, dip, and tap. For keyed entries, processing fees are 3.4% + $0.25 per transaction.
You can make mobile invoicing a routine part of your business or use the technology for one-time transactions—whatever’s easiest.
