iZettle invoice service launched to ease bookkeeping burden on independent firms
Electronic point of sales (EPOS) payment startup iZettle has introduced an invoice service to allow small businesses to create and send professional-looking invoices within its app. iZettle Invoice will be free for all existing iZettle users. The service will keep a record of a business’s online invoices, tracking which bills have been paid and which are outstanding, and which require automatic reminders. Small businesses will be charged a fee to send invoices of 2.5 per cent per invoice, but will be able to send an unlimited number using the iZettle Invoice service. The firm’s customers are never charged a fee, the company has said. With the introduction of iZettle Invoice, the Swedish fintech company hopes its offering to customers will be streamlined, enabling small business owners not to have to jump between various platforms to handle sales. A small firm can keep a record of all the payments it’s received in one place, regardless of whether clients pay with cash, on card or by invoice. iZettle Invoice also offers customers analytics and reporting tools to enable business growth. Commenting on the new service, iZettle CEO Jacib de Geer said: UK small business owners often have to deal with far too much administration, in lots of different places. we want to take the load off and are continuously expanding our product suite to help small businesses get paid, sell smarter and grow their business.
