Small business owners across the UK can celebrate having more time for the work they love, because today we’re announcing the Square Invoices app — created to help you process payments faster and get paid from anywhere. You can now send invoices, track payment statuses and send reminders, wherever you are. The Square Invoices app is free to download, with no complicated contracts, commitments or monthly fees. Create, send and track invoices for free, and only pay a flat 2.5% fee when payments are processed online. Your clients will never be charged, no matter how they pay.
