Allow your customers to pay you easier, from anywhere

Here’s why enabling mobile payments will make it easier for your customers to pay you securely and on time.

It’s been some time since the invoice went digital — no longer constrained to physical delivery methods, the email has become the main way for people to share invoices.

And as mobile technologies have evolved, consumers and business operators have become more confident in using their devices for these activities, too.

In fact, 43 percent of customers check invoices on their mobile.*
