Accept Debit and Credit Card Payments

 

Included in all Invoice2go subscriptions is the ability to accept debit or credit card payments on invoices.

Instead of waiting for a check in the mail or spending extra time making multiple ATM trips to deposit cash or checks, save time and minimize the risk of misplacing your funds by accepting customer payments online.

Accepting payments online not only will help save you time, but it is also a more secure way for your business to get paid faster. There are no extra apps required to accept payments — simply send an invoice with a payment link and Invoice2go will take care of getting you your money.

Accepting payments with debit and credit cards also creates new opportunities for potential customers. Your added flexibility of how you allow your customers to pay you makes it easier for people to do business with you.

When you enable payments, your invoices will include a Pay Now button that allows your customers to pay you online with either their debit or credit card. After receiving your first payment, you will receive an email from Invoice2go requesting you to link your bank account with Stripe. Invoice2go works with Stripe for payment acceptance. This partnership provides the best experience to your customers when paying you, and to you for automatic deposits.

Once you have linked your bank account to Stripe, money gets automatically deposited to your bank account. The first transaction will take 7 business days to be deposited (this is how Stripe helps prevent fraud), but every transaction after that will take 2 business days.

There is a fee of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. For example, for a payment of $100 from your customer, you would pay $3.20 for processing, and Stripe would deposit the remaining $96.80 to your bank.

Enabling Payments

To get started with accepting payments, all you need to do is (1) turn it on, (2) link your bank account and (3) have your customers pay you online.

You can turn on payments either from settings or at the invoice level. We recommend you keep payments enabled at the account level and turn it off at the invoice level for particular jobs.

Partnering with Stripe

Invoice2go has partnered with Stripe, a PCI Service Provider Level 1 payment processor, to allow you accept payments on every invoice you send to your customers. From your Stripe account, you can access information like incoming transactions and when they will be deposited into your bank account.

Once you have turned payments on, you will need to link your bank account with Stripe. Stripe requires your bank information to validate your business, deter fraud and comply with government regulations. If you have a PayPal business account with a bank account, you may provide this as your bank.

If your Invoice2go email is already registered with a Stripe account, the app will prompt you to connect your Stripe account by signing in with your current Stripe login credentials.

Minimum Requirements 

Accepting payments is enabled for iOS v. 9.0.0 or higher and Android v. 8.1.8 or higher. If you are unable to access payments on your mobile device, update to the latest version of Invoice2go on the App Store (iPhone and iPad) or Google Play Store (Android). The app version number is found at the bottom of the settings section within the Invoice2go app.

Payments is also accessible from a web browser when you are logged into your Invoice2go account; Google Chrome is recommended for the best payments experience.
