ServiceBox allows for your company to make note of payments for your invoices. For each invoice you will be able to add multiple payments with the amount of payment. You can define specific Payment methods by default there is Cash, Cheque and Credit Card (not including Stripe processing). If you would like to accept credit cards from your customers, you can sign up with Stripe (our secure credit card processor). Also if you link with accounting software (QuickBooks Desktop, QuickBooks Online, Sage 50 – Canada) the payments will be added into the accounting software supported by ServiceBox.
Stripe is a secure payment processor that we use at ServiceBox in order to process payments. By using Stripe we will be able to allow your company to have an individual Stripe account and we will be able to collect payments through ServiceBox. All credit card transfers will be deposited into your bank account.
