The cloud accounting system now offers a simple way for businesses to accept PayPal payments.
Cloud accounting provider Saasu added online invoicing last year, including a 'Pay now' button that works with Braintree, eWay and Stripe. The company has now extended that list with PayPal integration.
According to Saasu, the advantages of using PayPal include the ability to accept credit and debit cards in addition to PayPal payments, access to PayPal's Seller Protection scheme, easy setup and relatively simple charging: 2.6 percent plus 30c per invoice paid by Australian customers, higher for international customers or cards; discounts apply to volumes above $2501 per month; no monthly or setup fees.
More generally, the advantages of online invoicing are said to include reduced admin effort as payments are automatically recorded in your accounts, faster payment: “The more payment options you display on your invoices, the higher the chances your customers will pay you on time,” the company says. In addition, mobile businesses can collect non-cash payments on the spot without needing an EFTPOS terminal or other special-purpose device.
Saasu isn't as well known as MYOB or Xero, but its customers include Delivery Hero and Michelle Bridges 12WBT.
Saasu's prices start at $15 per month for up to 1000 transactions per year. The more expensive plans include extra features such as payroll, inventory and multicurrency support.
Elsewhere, MYOB's 'Pay now' button works with the company's own PayDirect Online service, while Xero's version of this feature (introduced over three years ago) supports DPS, eWay, PayPal and Stripe, and also provides a mechanism for integrating with other payment services.
