Online credit card payments
Securely accept credit card payments online.
Take one-off payments straight on the invoice using Pay Now or set up recurring payments, payment plans or subscriptions to automatically receive payment on the invoice due date. All credit card details are stored securely through Pinch using PCI compliant security systems.
Payments can be infrequent and vary in amounts, ideal for variable monthly / weekly billing.
Online direct debit payments
Securely accept direct debit payments online.
Set up recurring payments, payment plans or subscriptions to automatically receive payment with pre-approval from your customer. Your customer can store their bank details for later payments. If they accept, they can automatically be charged on the invoice due date.
Direct Debits are payments that are pulled directly from a bank account. They are often more reliable and are cheaper to process but take longer to settle into your account. Ideal for fixed or variable recurring payments.
Get paid and reconcile
Every payment we process reconciles automatically with your accounting system
Use the Pinch platform to invite your customer to approve future payments. Your customer simply fills in their credit card or bank account details and selects to be automatically charged future payments. Pinch does the rest and automatically collects payments on the invoice due date. Your accounting system is always up to date, so spending time reconciling payments is now a thing of the past.
Multiple invoices in one go
Batch Payments allows you to collect payment for multiple invoices in one single payment
If you find that your customer has multiple invoices outstanding it's a good practice to notify them regularly. However now you have the opportunity to show all open invoices each time your customer opens any of their invoices with you! It's a proven way to improve cashflow and reduce outstanding invoices.
Batch Payments is currently available to all clients as a preview feature and will feature as part of a group of premium tools.
Break larger invoices down into flexible payment plans for your clients
Take any invoice from your accounting system and apply free trial periods, fixed payments (dollar amount or percentage based) and then a recurring payment to allow your clients to pay off larger invoices in regular smaller amounts. All partial payments processed are fully reconciled in your accounting system.
Pass on the payment transaction fee to your customers.
Pinch charge a fee per transaction. You can choose to pass the fee onto your customer.
Plans and subscriptions
Breakdown large invoices into smaller payments, all tracked against the one invoice.
The Pinch payment plan designer lets you take deposits, recurring payments, fixed amounts or a percentage of the invoice total, or any combination of the above! You have the option to generate an invoice per payment, or one single invoice to track payments against.
