“we love Pinch

We moved over from a much larger Transaction provider and found Pinch to be way easier to integrate into our Xero invoices than anything else we found in the market. The dashboard and user interface is extremely intuitive and our customers have been extremely happy to use it. Whenever we've had feedback or suggestions, the Pinch team have been quick to respond and help us out.

Auto reconciliation

Accounting and cashflow management simplified.

When you link Pinch to your accounting software, invoice payments are recorded and adjusted for Pinch fees. The Pinch fees are added as a bill in the accounting software. 

Easily oncharge our fees

Pinch makes it simple to pass on our processing fees to your customers. It's all taken care of easily via the API.

All surcharged payments are also reconciled straight back into Xero automatically without any manual input. You can even choose to oncharge some clients and not others!

Custom statement descriptor

When you receive a card payment via our API, your customer will see your business name on their bank statement.

What Aussie businesses are saying about Pinch

Pinch Payments the game changer, allowed me to now direct debit my clients on a monthly basis with little fuss. The team at pinch were more than happy to assist with the set up and demonstrating the functionality of the software. Certainly will be showing my clients the power of Pinch. – Laz

The dashboard allows me to see exactly what's happening at any point in time, and the email notifications are a welcome sight that payments are on the way! I use Xero in our business, which Pinch integrates with beautifully—invoices automatically get marked as paid and reconciling works perfectly. – Ben

Pinch is a game changer. We wanted to offer card payments either via a direct debit set-up or once off and on-charge the fees. Pinch makes this a breeze and clients love the ease of use. Once activated it shows your invoices in Xero nicely with a pay now button. Highly recommend! –Samuel
