Square Announces Launch Of Invoices In Australia

Square Invoices gives Australian business owners a simpler and more affordable way to get paid faster.

MELBOURNE, 25 May 2016 – Square has today announced the availability of Square Invoices in Australia, adding to its already powerful Point of Sale ecosystem. Giving business owners more ways than ever to get paid from one app, Square Invoices allows sellers to create, customise and issue invoices directly from Square Point of Sale on a smartphone or tablet, or from Dashboard on their desktop. Invoices are emailed directly customers, who can then select to pay online securely with Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit or debit cards.

With the simplest and most accessible pricing in market, sellers can send unlimited invoices and access all of the features of the Square platform for free, and are only charged 2.2% when an invoice is paid online with Square, giving visibility and confidence to business owners knowing that they can track their expenses and forecast costs in advance. Sellers can track all sales and outstanding invoices from their Square Dashboard, combined with any sales processed through Square Reader—giving a full picture of business performance in one location with powerful reporting and payment tracking features.

“Optimising cash flow is critical to the survival and growth of any business and, unfortunately, Australian small businesses experience some of the slowest invoice payment speeds in the world. Research shows us that over $19 billion is locked away in outstanding invoices owed to businesses, and with 90% of small business failures a result of poor cash flow, we’re proud to bring tools to Australian sellers to ensure they’ve got every way to get paid,” commented Ben Pfisterer, Square Australia Country Manager.

“Square is continuing to help make business simpler for Australian sellers. From accepting card payments with Square Reader to now accepting payments online with Square Invoices, we’re empowering businesses with every tool they need to get paid fast and spend less time on time-consuming operational tasks like generating manual invoices and chasing payments.”
