CHICAGO, Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Merchants, Inc. (NMI), today announced the addition of Electronic Invoicing to its extensive suite of payment gateway solutions.
NMI's Electronic Invoicing enables Merchants to invoice customers via email and allows customers to make payment by following an embedded link. "This solution seems so obvious that you'd think most merchants already use it," says Rich Swiderski, National Sales Director at NMI. But, many companies throughout the world continue to struggle with old-fashioned invoicing procedures. "They still waste paper, stamp envelopes, and pay the cost of postage," added Swiderski.
Merchants using NMI's Electronic Invoicing system generate invoices with line by line detailed information. Invoices are automatically converted to PDFs, attached via email and sent to the customer's billing email address. Customers simply follow a link in the email to pay their open invoices. All invoices are kept within the payment gateway and can be easily retrieved or re-sent with a click of a button. There is no limit to the amount of invoices that can be sent. And, merchants don't need a website to get paid.
As for security, by sending out electronic invoices there is no need for merchants to store sensitive payment data. This allows merchants to avoid the most rigorous of PCI compliance issues.
"Everyone benefits," says NMI's Director of Product Development Nick Starai. "Merchants deliver faster and more secure invoices, customers maintain better records and since we're all striving to deal with less paper in today's world, helping reduce our carbon footprint is important for all of us."
