As the world continues to change and develop, so does the simplicity of digital payment options. In the past, some types of digital invoices were complicated and unsecure. Attaching a credit card authorization form to an email without encryption puts the customer at risk. There are simply better and more secure ways to conduct business while utilizing email invoices.
With the addition of PayFrog’s new email invoicing feature, your business can gather payment in a secure, efficient, and straightforward way to streamline the way you take payments. As a family owned and operated merchant service provider, we understand the importance of efficiency and an optimized customer experience, especially during an era where email invoicing and payment have become king.
As a company that chooses to utilize online payment systems and transactions, it is crucial that your customers and their information is protected. Like we mentioned above, many forms of payment collection via email are not safe without encryption, and as a small business providing any sort of email invoicing, it is your responsibility to guarantee customer information is protected.
Secure Email Invoicing for Small Businesses
There are simple solutions to this issue. When choosing payment processing services for your small business, some merchant services come prepackaged with invoice security already built-in. For example, PayJunction, a merchant services provider we’ve partnered with, just released a way to send digital invoices that is both secure and straightforward for business owners and customers alike. As a provider of merchant services via PayJunction, PayFrog is ecstatic to share this new feature with you!
How Does PayJunction’s Email Invoicing Work?
Since most people are used to either a traditional invoice or an emailed invoice, it is important to distinguish how PayJunction’s new feature differs from traditional means. PayJunction’s email invoicing feature is more secure and simple than standard invoicing methods. Below we are going to break down the process both from the business owner’s perspective as well as the customer’s perspective to show how easy it is!
1. A business requesting payment selects the “invoice” tab and creates a “new invoice.”
2. From here they customize each section for the translation, like entering the amount due, adding a description of the item or service being paid for, and adding the customer’s email address.
3. Finally click “send invoice” and the invoice is on the way to the customer. It’s status will denote “open” until the customer has paid.
Making a Payment
1. The customer receives an email indicating how much they owe to a specific business.
2. They select the “pay now” option and enter the relevant data such as payment information.
3. “Pay” is then clicked to finalize and make the payment. Voila! The transaction is complete.
