Invoice2go, the simplest way for business owners and freelancers to track work and get paid, is today launching a mobile point of sale (mPOS) payments feature with PayPal Here, enabling the smallest businesses to be paid in person, nearly anywhere they are.
The new feature is unveiled as Invoice2go announces it's customers are now sending $2 billion worth of invoices through the app - a significant milestone for the company.
Invoice2go remains committed to its original vision of making the lives of small business owners easier by simplifying their billing process, improving their cash flow and fueling their growth.
Invoice2go’s mobile point of sale (mPOS), supported by PayPal Here, now means that businesses, regardless of size, can accept swipe, insert, or tap and go card payments, wherever they are, to get paid on the spot.
What differentiates Invoice2go’s offering is that it’s designed to fit how the most mobile of businesses work. Now, plumbers, contractors, florists, and dog walkers alike - who go from job to job, issuing invoices along the way - can be paid instantly on the spot, whether they are on a job site, their home office, or their customer’s front porch.
Invoice2go already offers online payments for its users, and now adding the ability to accept payments on the spot means small businesses can offer their customers even more ways to pay, meaning they can appeal to a wider customer base and increase customer retention.
Michael Ramsey, Head of Product, Invoice2go said that the company was tapping into the astronomical rise of in-person and contactless payments. “Consumers already expect to be able to pay in-person, no matter who they are dealing with. We want to empower our customers, the majority of whom are one-man-bands, to be able to have the same opportunities, and look just as professional, as the biggest players.”
Offering a solution that’s completely integrated within the Invoice2go app means business owners can take advantage of a secure, clean experience that brings everything from estimates to billing, payment, and business reporting together in one place.
Invoice2go reaches new milestone
The launch of the new payments feature, comes as Invoice2go reaches a significant milestone in its 15 year history. Invoice2go's customers are now sending $2bn worth of invoices through the app. This figure has doubled in just two years since the company announced it has reached $1 billion in invoices sent in 2015.
