How Pinch and Reckon work together
Pinch connects to your Reckon file and detects when you raise an invoice. A payment link is added to each invoice and you can also use Pinch for recurring payments and Direct Debit billing. No internet merchant account with a bank is required.
Improve your cash flow
Encourage your customers to store their payment details with you so debiting them for recurring services becomes easy and painless. Pre-Approval payments are all fully reconciled with your bank statement.
Different ways to get paid
Accept payments online from either a debit/credit card or direct from an Australian bank account. Your customer can choose the payment method they prefer and can update details as and when required.
All sensitive data is stored in Australia and is compliant with credit card regulations.
All payments processed via Pinch are reconciled into your Reckon file meaning you no longer have to spend time figuring out which invoices have been paid and when.
You can also pass on the Pinch fees to your customer meaning you pay nothing for the service.
Payment plans and subscriptions
Create your own flexible payment plans, installment payments and subscription style payments. Importantly, every payment processed is automatically syncronised with your Reckon file meaning both you and your accountant can save time on reconciling.

“It’s set and forget in the sense that once you onboard a client, that's it. You don't have to worry about sending an invoice again. It's just all done and dusted and it just takes away like any kind of extra people touching it or needing reminders. Before Pinch, it was always us chasing clients. Now the process is automated: we know the contract is signed, we know the payments have been audited. And then as soon as that's all done, they're put straight into our project management system. It basically minimises any room for errors, and minimises time spent chasing up and seeing where things are at.”

"Pinch is an integral partner in our business. Every time I see a Pinch line on our statements, I know that it represents a lot of manual work that we’re just not doing anymore. As well as making our lives easier, it actually makes the customer journey a lot easier as well. They just have to click a button, put their card in once, and then it’s done. We’re also saving time for them in terms of their accounting and processing, because it’s happening automatically for them as well."
Gosh have just signed up with Pinch Perfect and can't believe how easy it is to setup so I can offer clients a variety of payment options...highly recommend!
It has been incredibly easy to integrate Pinch into our business and our customers have loved the flexibility to pay during hours that suit them. Pinch has made reconciliation of credit card transactions a breeze. Quick and efficient and saves a lot of time.
Nicola, OZ Excavator Buckets
Forced into looking for a change by a sudden decision by the existing provider to charge a minimum monthly fee which was 4 times what I had been paying I found and implemented Pinch. Super easy to set up and no hidebound bureaucracy such as encountered from banks. Have been using Pinch for 6 weeks and no issues to date. Particularly like the way it collects monthly subscriptions without any interaction from me. Data flows to Xero accurately and in a timely way. Would thoroughly recommend.

The team at Pinch have been amazing and I couldn't recommend them more highly. Paul and Bill have been great in helping me setup the payments system and integrate it into my business. Always available to help and quick to pick up the phone. Thanks Pinch
Bloody love pinch! Its so simple to use and was so easy to set up. Bill and the team honestly go above and beyond and have tackled any questions or scenarios I have thrown at them. As a bookkeeper I will only be using Pinch going forward for myself and my clients.
Summer, Oh Nine Solutions
We have recently signed up with Pinch and can't believe how easy and efficiently it integrated with Xero accounts. Also love the auto-reconcile of payment fees. Pinch also makes it very easy for our clients to pay their bills. Thank you Blake for all your help. We would definitely recommend Pinch!
Valerie, Infinite Print
We've tried and tested out dozens of payment solutions over the years at Digit both with our business, and in helping other businesses move to digital payments. The team at Pinch have been amazing at finding technical solutions to meet bespoke needs. They've helped us leverage their Xero capabilities for variable billing, combined with the ability to push in through their API payer details when people sign our agreements. They're the perfect balance of automation combined with customisation, backed by a super attentive team. Can't recommend them highly enough.
