Multiple Ways to Get Paid
Square offers a ton of ways to get paid. You can get some hardware from Square for in-person swipe, chip, tap, or manual payments. You can accept payments in-app, via digital invoice creation, online payments through your website, and even through shareable checkout links.
Do you have any regular clients? Perhaps you’re on retainer with a few, providing regular services in exchange for a fixed monthly fee? With Square, you can store your clients’ credit or debit cards and set up automated recurring invoicing. Square automatically charges your client’s card, making it so that neither party needs to remember to pay or get paid.
Square offers payment reminders as another automation to help you collect on customer accounts and maximize cash flows. When you create an invoice in Square, you can schedule these reminders ahead of time so you can get back to working on more important matters.
Need some cash for your business to invest in new projects? Square offers merchant cash advances (although they call them loans) through their Square Capital division, so you can exchange a slice of future credit sales for some quick cash.
Square Business Debit Card
Square gives you more control over your business’s income by offering a free business debit card. The moment you make a sale, your debit card becomes loaded with that money. That way, you can quickly and easily spend the money on your business needs.
Alternatively, however, Square lets you transfer funds to your bank account in as little as one business day for free (or instantly for a small fee).
