New Invoicing Features for QuickBooks® Online
Part Two in a series of QuickBooks® Online 2017 Changes.
December brought a holiday gift from Intuit — a shiny new QuickBooks® Online interface. Simplified and more efficient, Intuit will be rolling out this new look across all of their QuickBooks online products, including QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Online Accountant, QuickBooks Self-Employed, and other Inuit products working within the QuickBooks® Online environment.
New Features making Life Easier with QuickBooks® Online
The new QuickBooks® Online interface includes a number new features and functions to help users get paid faster, work more closely with accounting professionals, and use QuickBooks more efficiently. Here is a rundown of the most recent improvements.
QBO Smart Invoice
Cash is the lifeblood of small businesses If we can help you save money, or even better, help you receive the money you’re owed faster, you have a better chance at succeeding. We recently announced three innovations to help you get paid fast and save as much of the money you’ve earned as quickly as possible:
- An integration with Apple Pay that enables merchants to get paid quickly and easily on outstanding invoices via the newly launched Apple Pay on the Web;
- An integration with American Express Working Capital Terms, which provides short-term loans directly within QuickBooks Online; and
- Mileage Tracker, which finds users $7,000 in tax deductions by auto-categorizing trips as personal or business.
Now, with SmartInvoice, you will be notified immediately about the status of your invoices every step of the way. You’ll know when invoices have been sent, viewed, and most importantly, paid. Spend less time chasing invoices, or wondering if your customers received or read their invoice, and more time running your business and working with customers or spending time with family. Previously this was only available on the QBO Mobile App, but now it’s available in QBO as well. Smart Invoice for the Web helps you get paid faster. Plus, we have eliminated the 50 cents-per-transaction ACH fee, so you can now have your invoices paid with free ACH bank transfers.
New Faster Invoicing Setup Helps You Get Paid Faster
There is a new simplified setup experience for new customers when you start using QBO that will help you cruise through the process and get paid more quickly. The new experience has fewer setup screens, so you can start using QuickBooks and create an invoice in just a few clicks! And, if you select that invoicing is important, QuickBooks will put you directly into the new invoicing setup flow where you can customize an invoice for your business, select how you want to accept payments and send your first invoice just a few minutes!
Over the coming weeks you’ll see more updates to all related products, as the goal at QuickBooks® is to have a fully in-sync User Experience and Interface. They’re well on their way with these terrific changes released in December — and as soon as more changes come round, we’ll be sure to share the with you!
