Panhandling with Plastic Money...
Of the two main ways to ask for money -- panhandling and invoicing -- only the latter can benefit from billing services and credit card processing. Billing services let companies send invoices electronically, by postal or electronic mail, and receive electronic payments or by credit card.
Billing services are designed specifically to help businesses invoice more effectively and lets users import invoices and payments directly into their accounting system, such as QuickBooks. More importantly, billing services provide for accepting electronic payments and payments by credit card. The upside of this is that accepting credit cards makes it more attractive and easier for customers to pay, because they can earn rewards or miles for putting what they already have to pay on a credit card.
Even easier now is the ability to save time and money with Intuit Payment Solutions (QuickBooks Merchant Services). Businesses can accept credit and debit cards faster than ever, right in QuickBooks. There is no more double data entry, no need to reconcile with a terminal.
Aside from lower costs compared to other merchant service providers, the leading advantage of accepting credit and debit cards from within QuickBooks is the elimination of errors in data entry or reconciliation. Credit and debit cards processed via QuickBooks Merchant Services immediately improve accuracy by reducing data entry errors, including automatic entry of deposits as soon as funding occurs, properly reflecting sales amounts and applicable card processing fees.
