Bindo, a leading retail technology company that has developed an innovative iPad Point-of-sale (POS) solution, announced it has launched a new invoicing component that will enhance payment and billing capabilities. Bindo’s new invoice feature will give retailers the ability to bill a specific customer in a multitude of contextual purchasing scenarios that differ from the standard POS.
The new invoice feature enables retailers to offer more payment methods, drastically improving the purchasing experience between customers and merchants. Payment methods include partial payments, advance orders, and charges to accounts of frequent customers. Retailers using Bindo’s invoicing service can easily select new or returning customers to bill, which automatically sends the customer a personalized and branded email containing all relevant information concerning the items and payment. Additionally, Bindo gives businesses the option to create and send quotes to consumers that can later easily become converted into a payable invoice.
“Invoicing on our platform opens up an entirely new dynamic to Bindo and the retailers using it,” said Brad Lauster, cofounder of Bindo. “If a business wants to bill customers with existing store accounts, charge a down payment, or if a customer wants the option for layaway and to pay in increments, the invoicing option covers it. We’re constructing Bindo to become applicable to any sales scenarios, making the POS as semantic and smooth as possible.”
Leveraging the invoice feature from Bindo’s POS system, businesses and consumers will be able to get a clearer picture of all of their transactions. The new feature promises to improve the POS experience and offer Bindo users an even more customized encounter.
Bindo was founded in 2011 by Jason Ngan and Brad Lauster. It has developed a cloud-based iPad POS (Point-of-Sale) that enables online shopping for the end consumer. In a few months, it will be releasing Bindo Marketplace: a consumer app that aggregates all of the stores using Bindo POS onto one platform, allowing consumers to purchase directly online from their favorite neighborhood store, and have their orders delivered. In doing so, Bindo aims to close the loop between the online and the offline. As the network grows, Bindo becomes a real-time product graph, connecting brands, consumers and merchants.
