GoCanvas and Square now make it easier to get paid faster. GoCanvas Admins and Designers can now easily drag-and-drop a Payments field into any GoCanvas form to allow your staff to accept credit card payments onsite, using the popular Square mobile payments service. With any GoCanvas form capable of accepting Square, the integration between your business and finance operation can now be more streamlined than ever before. Of course, if you don't already have a Square account, you can register for Square from within the GoCanvas App Builder. Here's a link to help you set up Square in GoCanvas.
Getting paid faster and reducing bad debt by ensuring payment before your employees leave the worksite might just be reason enough to update your GoCanvas forms to include Square. GoCanvas customers asked for Square by name, which is not surprising considering all of the paperwork that can be eliminated with this new payment option.
New Square users are eligible for a free Square magstripe reader (headset jack or Lightning connector versions). Another benefit is that you can permanently link payments collected via Square directly to your customers' unique projects captured in GoCanvas. So, not only are your employees off the hook for filling out paper-based estimates, invoices, and other work documents, they are freed of having to connect a customer's check or cash payment to the corresponding paperwork — a headache that occurs sometimes months after the actual work product is delivered.
Wait! What? We had you at “…make it easier to get paid faster?”
