Freshbooks Now Allows Invoice Payments through Apple Pay
The online accounting program Freshbooks has updated its invoicing system to accommodate Apple Pay. Users can now allow clients to pay for their invoices with Apple’s mobile wallet instead of entering their credit or debit card information.
Freshbooks launched the first upgrade of its platform in September, allowing for more payment option. With the integration of Apple Pay, small business owners who rely on Freshbooks for their cloud accounting can enjoy more flexibility in their payment processing.
The Apple Pay integration covers the mobile version of the wallet and Apple Pay on the web. Clients can complete their payments using an Apple Watch, iPhone, or MacBook that is compatible with Apple Pay. There are no extra fees for completing payments with Apple Pay, and Freshbooks users will not need to set up anything to make Apple Pay accessible for their clients.
“A recent Intuit survey found that almost 70 percent of small business owners felt that giving their customers more ways to pay will help them get paid faster, boosting their cash-flow and enabling long-term success,” said Vinay Pai, vice president and head of Intuit Developer Group.
Perhaps the same success can come to freelancers and other independent workers who use Freshbooks to manage their accounts.
