Apxium’s payment gateway, online invoice accounts receivable solution might sound like a dream come true, but how do you know if Apxium is right for your business?
Apxium customers work in all types of industries, but they all have a few things in common:
Invoiced Billing: Businesses who choose Apxium rely on invoiced billing instead of a point of sale (POS) solution. Our customers are in every kind of business, from trade to services to finance, but they run their businesses with invoiced billing.
Customers who use Apxium work in:
SME & general trade
Accounting, Legal and other Professional Services
Accounting Software: Apxium integrates seamlessly with modern cloud-based accounting software packages like Xero and MYOB cloud. Do you use a different accounting system? Apxium also offers support for a variety of other server-based accounting systems, and can work with you to integrate Apxium into your existing system.
Credit & Debit Payments: Apxium’s secure, online payment gateway helps your customers pay you more easily by accepting major credit cards and also facilitating debit transactions from any nominated bank account. Would you like to accept credit cards but are finding it hard to justify the costs? Apxium’s competitive rates will help keep your customers happy. Do you have customers who have multiple bills owing? No problem. Apxium can be set up so that customers are able to settle multiple bills at once with one payment. Better still, Apxium will reconcile the payment amount across all of their accounts, so your accounting records are kept clean and up-to-date.
Client Debtors: With Apxium, your debtor management and customer billing communications are automated. That means no more printed invoices, no email chains, and no more follow up calls. Just approve each invoice and Apxium steps in, automatically sending out an email or SMS text message that includes a link to the payment gateway. Apxium even keeps track of outstanding invoices and sends out reminders, so you don’t have to.
Apxium integrates into your accounting system to keep track of the payment status and aging of your invoices. With Apxium, your accounts receivable will be automatically updated each time your client settles an invoice via your payment gateway. Apxium also sends out your prepared invoices and tracks your customers' payment history. Apxium will even send out tax compliant payment receipts for your client’s records.

With Apxium, your whole accounts receivable process becomes automated. Once your accounts person prepares and authorises an invoice, Apxium steps in to communicate, take payment, and follow up on your outstanding statements. Customers will be able to make their payments on your customised, online payment gateway. Your customers will be able to pay via credit card or via direct debit from a nominated bank account. Apxium’s unique, paperless direct debit service can facilitate a single, one-off payment or an entire schedule of payments to satisfy amounts owed via instalments. You and your business get to decide whether payment via instalment is offered on a debtor by debtor basis. Payments made through your gateway will be written back into your accounting system, a receipt to your customer will be issued, and your bank records will reflect the transaction number.
The Apxium debtor dashboard has an inbuilt, virtual POS terminal that allows you to take payments over the phone or in person.
Apxium can eliminate the need for printing & postage fees with its automatic invoice emails and SMS text messages. Late and past due invoices are followed up with reminder communications that escalate according to your preferences, reducing the need to spend hours chasing down the person responsible for payment.
Are you spending more time chasing money than making it? Do you make multiple deposits every month, or have to let customers know you don’t take credit cards? Do you spend hours every month reconciling your client’s payments by hand? Apxium eliminates these everyday frustrations and streamlines your entire accounts receivable process.
Apxium makes your bookkeeping more efficient in 4 key ways:
Apxium works by integrating into your accounting package to automatically detect authorised and outstanding invoices. Via the Apxium hosted client portal, your customers can see their outstanding balance and their payment history so they can easily track what they owe. This visibility and the ease of payment reduces debtor days and evens out your cash flow.
Customer’s credit card transactions are approved in real time, so there’s no need to deal with cancelled checks or their bank fees. The Apxium system also comes with an inbuilt virtual POS terminal to enable over the phone or in person payments.
This means you can save money by handing back your expensive POS terminal.
Once your customer pays, Apxium issues a receipt and reconciles the invoice with transaction numbers. You’ll see your payments on your bank activity the next day, along with the transaction number.
All these automated A/R services combine to even out cash flow, reduce labour hours, lower bank and credit card fees, and lower bad debts.
