Melbourne based Ingrain Designs get paid fast with Square Invoices

“Square Invoices takes the work out of getting paid,” says Ben Purchase, Director of Melbourne’s Ingrain Designs who create bespoke handmade furniture with recycled or reclaimed timbers. The ability to send an invoice straight from his phone, set up automated reminders, and enable customers to pay instantly by card has significantly reduced the amount of time Ben spends chasing payments.

“Before, we would typically wait at least a couple of weeks to get paid because we had to send invoices manually and wait to receive a deposit in our bank account. It was difficult to keep track of what we were owed and determine what payments were overdue. Now, the process is streamlined with my customers able to pay by card in just a few steps, so we’re getting payments the same day which makes a big difference to our operations.”
