Invoiceplace review and testimonial – “delivers a great way to interact with my clients for my invoicing, accounting and payment needs.”

Thank you to Warren Morgan for kindly providing an Invoiceplace review and testimonial

I like it because it is Australian based, is simple and it works.

I have been using Invoiceplace.com for my freelance work because it allows for simple ‘cloud-based’ services and delivers a great way to interact with my clients for my invoicing, accounting and payment needs.

Paymate: Australian online payment gateway, pay online, buy online

Invoiceplace has partnered with Paymate (an Australian Made online payment service) to provide a safe, easy and efficient way to invoice your customers and receive credit card payments. Upgrade to a paperless invoicing system and don’t waste time printing and posting your invoices or waiting in line at the bank.

Use Invoiceplace to create an invoice and email directly to your customer. Your customer simply clicks on a link in the invoice which directs them to the Paymate website to make a secure credit card payment – and the money is deposited directly into your bank account.

There is no need to set-up a merchant bank account – use your existing Australian or New Zealand business bank account to create a seller account in order to receive credit card payments through Paymate.

Paymate seller accounts are available to Australian and New Zealand registered businesses. Receive payments from Visa and Mastercard credit cards in Australian Dollars, US Dollars, Euros, British Pounds or New Zealand Dollars.

You don’t have to worry about receiving or storing credit card numbers. Paymate (an Australian financial services business, licensed with ASIC (Licence No: 290582)) is responsible for processing the payment.

Take advantage of this exciting partnership by following these steps:
