Square Invoices overview

What is Square Invoices?

Square Invoices is a cloud-based invoice generation solution which allows sellers to create, send, and track customizable invoices for free, and process customer debit and credit card payments. The platform can be used by any merchant needing to accept remote payments, including retailers with wholesale, service-based business, and restaurants offering catering services.

With Square Invoices, users can select items to create invoices without needing to manually enter or recheck cost amounts. Invoices can be sent directly to customers via email, and users can also print paper copies as required. Users can customize invoices with company logos, color schemes, and default ‘thank you’ messages or terms or service. Customers can pay invoices in person, by check, or online using their debit or credit card, and are not charged any fees for making payments. Customer card details can be stored securely on file to streamline the payment process for future invoices. From the Square dashboard, users can track the status of all sent invoices, and send payment reminders for unpaid or overdue invoices. Payment analytics also give users insight into how their business is performing.

Square is invaluable to the operation of my business. Their invoicing system allows me to accept custom orders and delegate perfectly

Pros
Ease of use! Love that the invoicing allows you to set dates finances are due, the analytics are seamless, and it tracks customers emails for you allowing you the added bonus and ability to reach out to customers if you wish. Love this Software!

Cons
All credit information is keyed in by customer - resulting in higher fee's. If you do find an error with the invoice, any changes are automatically emailed to the customer. I feel this could be annoying to customers receiving multiple unnecessary emails. There should be an option to prevent this from being automatically sent.

Pros
I can set up a new customer 1 time and invoices are sent automatically each month. This saves me a tremendous amount of time that allows me to provide more attention to my customers.

Cons
When invoices are sent via email, they are occasionally sent to a recipient's junk folder. I typically send the invoice, then call the customer to make sure they've received it. I'm not sure how to get around it, but it'd be nice knowing invoices won't get filtered on the receiving end.

Easy affordable invoice creation, sending, tracking, and even payments. It's completely customizable and free to use the invoice section. Accepting payments through the program also has a very minimal charge compared to most.

Pros
This program allows me to make send and track custom invoices for my small business. I can upload my logo and pick a matching color scheme. The program saves my settings then allows me to create my invoice in seconds. Then send it to my customers and I can accept payment through the program for a very minimal fee compared to most sites. I also can use it completely free to keep track of all my invoices and payments.

Cons
Honestly there are no cons on this software. Normally price is the biggest issue but not here. I really have tired to find something bad here and cannot.

Pros
What I like most is how simple and straight forward the user face is to use for myself as a business owner to send invoices and for my customers to pay with.

Cons
What I like least about this software is its reporting. It is very minimal and not accurate. It is nearly impossible to a report for specific days and get correct totals. It should be as easy as "how much money did we make yesterday" but Square Invoicing does not have the feature.

ease of use. Simplification of our billing process.

Pros
Easy to use. Eliminates the need to collect credit card numbers from clients and enter in payments manually. Much more secure and clients seem to like it too.

Cons
Clients can store their billing information for future purchases. However, there's no way for them to apply a gratuity for bills automatically paid in this way. Then it necessitates an awkward conversation to ask for a tip.
