PRLog - Sep. 15, 2011 - CLEMENTON, N.J. -- CANBERRA, Australian Capital Territory – Accepting payments through FreshBooks just got easier as the leading online invoicing service has teamed up with eWAY, Australia’s top online payment processing gateway. This move brings eWAY’s slate of convenience and security benefits to FreshBooks’ Australian users.
Australian small businesses can save time, look more professional, and get paid faster now that FreshBooks online invoicing works with eWAY online payments. Unlike with other payment platforms, there is no middle man with eWAY; funds will be deposited directly into the seller’s merchant account. Australian merchants can choose from among the country’s nine major banks, and accept payment from all major credit cards.
“The eWAY payment option for FreshBooks delivers the convenience, reliability and peace of mind our customers have long enjoyed to a wider scope of businesses seeking to simplify their payment processing, and it’s all automated through FreshBooks,”
“eWAY was the last piece of the puzzle for FreshBooks coming to Australia,” said Sunir Shah, Chief Handshaker at FreshBooks. “Our Australian customers have asked for eWAY and we have delivered. Small businesses across Australia can now take advantage of FreshBooks to get paid faster online.”
Getting started is easy for any small business. After contacting eWAY for help setting up an Internet Merchant Facility with their preferred bank, users simply go to their FreshBooks settings, click Online Payments, and select eWAY as a payment gateway. Once they’ve entered their eWAY Customer ID, they’ll be ready to start taking credit card payments.
