    Hi there

    I’m Cherie from Live eftpos. We offer a stand-alone payments device and also a virtual terminal where you can enter card details directly into the app on your smartphone, laptop or PC. Price dependent on volume so we are happy to quote you. Best advantage is that you are not required to purchase any hardware outright you simply pay a monthly rental and then processing fees per transaction. No lock-in contracts so if you wish to exit at anytime that’s not a problem.

    Check http://www.liveeftpos.com.au for more info or reply if you have any questions.

    I only use direct deposit and my invoices range from $200 to over $15k.

    I use Harvest ( https://www.getharvest.com/ ) to generate invoices. Jobs over $1,000 require a 30% deposit upfront and remainder is due on delivery. Some larger jobs also have milestone payments due at stages of the project.

    Make sure you use a contract for new clients as it lays out what you will and will not be doing. I’d suggest looking at some open source ones such as ‘The Contract Killer” http://stuffandnonsense.co.uk/projects/contract-killer/


    Can anyone answer if this contract applies under Australian Laws?

    Thank You

    Hi Everyone,

    The easiest system I have come across (what I currently use). I use a free online accounting system called wave, get it at waveapps(dot)com
    It’s great, it’s free and I’ve never had a problem. Only thing I can’t do is payroll because it isn’t available in Australia just yet.
    With wave you can signup for and integrate stripe (it’s like a 1 click setup). Stripe is amazing, it’s like the next paypal and one of the reps are on this forum if you have questions.
    Stripe has recently released in Australia with AUS rates and it is half the price of paypal. I think it’s 1.75% + 30cents.
    All you do is create your invoice in wave and hit email and it will send the invoice to your client and they can pay right from your invoice.
    It can handle part payments and repeat payments. Also when people pay it automatically adjusts your accounting for you.

    Hope that helps.
