Payments startup Square announced that sellers using its Register service can now send customers payment notifications via a new invoice feature.

Square says Invoices eliminates the need for sellers to track down customers and take payments over the phone, since the invoice is sent directly to the customer's email with a direct payment link. The invoice also allows the customers to contact the sellers directly with any questions. 

The invoice function becomes the third payment-acceptance method within the platform, joining Square Market and the old-fashioned in-person method as a means to collect.  

Square is offering the service without a monthly fee, however sellers will still be charged the 2.75 percent transaction fee that is in place throughout the Square platform. The paying customers don't pay a fee regardless of how they pay.
