Pinch’s secret sauce is our ability to automatically reconcile your Xero account with your payments, instantly reducing hours of regular admin work once installed.
Pinch offers direct debit pre-approvals, batch payments, instalment payments, payment plans, recurring payments and automated reminders that let you put your customer payments on autopilot.
The result? Improved crucial cash flow while saving additional time and providing a great customer experience.
Where Pinch really excels is for businesses that have irregular payment cycles, variable invoice amounts, recurring invoices, and a high volume of invoices for smaller amounts.
Pinch charges 30c/transaction plus 1% for direct debit from a bank account (capped at $5) and 1.95% for credit and debit cards. Because you can pass the transaction fees on to your customers, we suggest smaller invoice amounts to avoid sticker shock for your customers.
There are no setup, minimum, or monthly fees.
