Payments Apps – Get Paid Faster
Did you know that over 60 per cent of people aren’t paying their invoices by the due date? Statistics show that on a 30-day term invoice, businesses won’t receive payment until day 36. This unfortunately can result in poor cash flow which is the lifeblood of any business as it is the most important metric of fuelling growth. A solution to help improve this could be to add a payment gateway app like PayPal, Stripe or Square to name only a few. These apps integrate seamlessly with your Xero software. Xero have noted - Invoices with Stripe and PayPal options get paid up to 10.4 days faster on average than invoices without them. By providing a number of payment options to your customers it allows for a faster and smoother transaction resulting in better cash flow for your business.
