The holidays are here and that means you’ll be processing more payments than any other time of the year. You might be hitting the road for upcoming holiday festivals or looking to do a pop-up shop with other retailers.
Maybe you just want the flexibility of having a mobile payment app that gives you the freedom to do business – and get paid – anywhere.
This is where QuickBooks GoPayment App can help. Our GoPayment app is available for both iOS and Android devices and easily syncs with your QuickBooks desktop account. Below are the five ways you can process payments and get paid faster with GoPayment.
1. Swipe and Go
Once you’ve signed up for QuickBooks GoPayment and downloaded the app to your mobile device, you’ll need to complete a quick application and get approval from QuickBooks. Once approval is received, QuickBooks will mail out your credit card reader. It connects via Bluetooth to your mobile device and accepts cards with EMV chips and magnetic strips.
2. Tap and Go
Now, with QuickBooks All-in-One card reader it’s easier than ever to accept Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay™, and Android Pay™. This reader gives you the flexibility to accept credit cards and tap-and-go payments. And it’s still portable and easy to carry. Similar to the credit card reader, it will connect to your mobile device (which can also include tablets) via Bluetooth and be ready to use in just a few minutes.
3. Scan and Go
If you prefer not to get the card reader or just don’t find it convenient, you can also scan credit cards using your phone’s camera app. This will import all the pertinent information on the card so that you don’t have to worry about keying it in. Beware of “well-loved” credit cards though – if the numbers are faded or obscured, it might be difficult for your camera to read.
4. Key and Go
If all else fails, manual normally works! Key in the credit card data on your device, including the card number and expiration date to complete the transaction. Hopefully, you won’t need to do this too often as it can slow down the payment process. However, it’s better than having no way to get paid at all.
5. Cash and Carry
Customers may not always have or want to use a credit card. No problem – key in cash on the GoPayments app and process the transaction that way. You’ll still be able to provide a receipt and the transaction will still be synced to your QuickBooks desktop account so you can keep an accurate record of the day’s sales. You can use the same process if a customer would rather pay by check. (It seems strange, but it still happens!)
Mobile payment apps, unfortunately, have a bad reputation for charging outrageous fees. However, QuickBooks GoPayment app offers a competitive fee structure, that is available as a pay-as-go option.
For businesses that charge more than $7,500 a month, there is a separate fee structure designed to save you money.
Plus, with the integration of the GoPayment app with your QuickBooks account, you can also set-up recurring invoices, send invoice reminders and receive updates when invoices have been paid.
Even if you don’t operate a point-of-sale business, you can still use the QuickBooks GoPayment app to process payments and keep all of that information in one place.
This holiday season, take the uncertainty out of mobile payments. Use QuickBooks GoPayment app for all of your point-of-sale, online and invoice payment needs.
