As a small business owner, you wear a lot of hats. But if we had to guess, we’d say you didn’t start your business to balance books. Yet, here you are, wearing the accountant hat. You know the one. It’s a green transparent visor often accompanied by a loud clacking of calculators.
Why are you wearing that hat? Better question: what’s the best accounting tool for small businesses to track payments down?
We’ve all heard of PayPal and Square. They’re great tools, but they have their shortcomings for small businesses when it comes to getting paid.
PayPal, Square and other options
nbkc + Autobooks
Hiring an accountant
Autobooks gives small business owners like you two easy ways to accept payment:
A Quick Payment Link
Text it. Email it. Put it on your website. However you communicate with your customers, give them your link and get paid.
Your quick payment link provides a straightforward form for your customers to fill out. Forget cumbersome logins or password setups. Customers will pay—via credit, debit, bank transfer—and be on their way.
Professional, Polished Invoices
All you need for invoices is the customer’s name and email address. And you can save it, too.
You can also customize your invoices with your logo and colors for clean, on-brand documents. Then offer partial payment options, recurring payments or a discount.
Recurring payments. Customers can set up their credit card for automatic payments every month.
Who has or hasn’t paid? At a glance, you can track payments. You can even see if a customer has seen your invoice.
Automated reminders. Set up payment reminders so your customers get an email about when they need to pay and how much they need to pay.
First things first: does your business bank with nbkc already? Yes? Great, you’re in. If you’re not currently banking with us, you’ll need to open an nbkc Business checking account, then we’re off to the Autobooks races.
How come we require that account with us? Autobooks is available inside your nbkc Business checking account, account. It’s self-serve, so small businesses can easily sign up. Sure beats the alternative high cost options.
Head over to our Autobooks page to read more and to reach out about it. Hang up that green visor and we’ll talk to you soon.
