Secure processing

All Credit Card and Bank Account information securely stored using PCI compliant systems. Helps ensure that your client payment information is stored safely.

Talks to IPA Books+ automatically

Just by raising an invoice as normal in IPA Books+ will enable us to process the payment automatically on the due date and deposit into your account with full bookkeeping reconciliation.

Friendly Reports

An easy to use dashboard allows you to instantly see who we've charged and when we've charged them. You can also see who and when we are going to charge and make changes if required.

Processing your client payments

Pinch will monitor your IPA Books+ account for upcoming invoice payments. When a customer chooses to pay their invoice they will be given a choice to store their credit card details on file for future payments.

If the customer chooses to store their details, each time a new invoice is raised the customer will be automatically charged and the payment updated in IPA Books+.

Everything we do is shown in an easy to understand dashboard so nothing unexpected happens with you or your customers.

Better cashflow for you

If a payment from one of your customers fails, you will receive an automated notification. We will then manage the process of collecting the funds by:

  • Re-attempting to process the transaction up to 5 times
  • Giving the customer the opportunity to update their credit card details
  • Sending payment failed notifications to the customer
  • Allowing the customer to select a payment plan for partial payments

As a client of Pinch, you are always in full control over what we do and how we charge your customers.

Safe and secure payment page

Each of your customers can choose to store their credit card details with us for automated payments. They can do this in advance, or as part of their first transaction with us. This gives you the following benefits:

  • You don't need to handle sensitive credit card data
  • Future payments made to you are totally automated
  • You increase your cashflow instead of chasing payment
  • Recurring invoices are suddenly so easy to manage
  • All payments are handled securely

Pinch takes the payment process and makes it very easy for both you and your customers.
