Owning a dog is one of life’s great pleasures for many people, but everyone with a four-legged friend also knows it’s a big responsibility - they need heaps of exercise and for busy dog parents sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
That’s why we think mobile dog walkers are one of the unsung heroes of society, providing an invaluable service for man and woman’s best friend and their busy owners - we’re also a teensy bit jealous you get to spend your days in the company of our furry friends!
That being said, at takepayments we’re all about making small business owners’ lives easier, and our new mobile payment solution will do just that for dog walkers.
As it stands, you probably get paid in cash every week or month, or perhaps your clients send payments electronically, but both of these methods likely make the book-keeping and accounting sides of running your business a bit of a faff.
Getting paid in cash means you’ve got to find time to get to a bank, and electronic transfers into your account mean you need to keep a record of who’s paid, when payments are due, and could leave you in an awkward position chasing overdue fees.
The good news is invoicing payments and accounting are easier than ever before, and since the UK is moving towards a cashless society - bolstered by the events of 2020 - mobile and contactless payments are in high demand.
So, to make your life easier and give your clients what they want, a mobile payment solution is a great option for dog walkers - enter beepaid.
beepaid is our brand new payments app, and without wanting to blow our own trumpet, it makes getting paid on the go super simple - perfect for dog walkers.
You don’t need a terminal, just your mobile phone, leaving you one less thing to carry around with you - we realise your pockets are probably full of treats and lord knows, fur gets everywhere! Here’s how it works:
We weren’t kidding when we said it was simple, and the funds will land in your account the next banking day.
One of the handiest features of beepaid is it’s totally contactless no matter the transaction amount so you can offer your clients what they want without needing to worry about a spending limit.
As if all the above wasn’t enough, there are some serious business benefits to be gained by using a mobile invoicing app to get paid, you can:
