You’ll be paid directly by the client. Sweeten saves you the headache of having to open up an account with a payment processor, negotiating a rate with them and paying a fee for each transaction. By being a part of the Sweeten network, you get access to this free service.
Yes, for now—you’ll need to upload a signed contract to Sweeten before you have access to Secure Pay.
In an upcoming release, we’ll allow you to request deposits earlier, so you’ll have the flexibility to use the deposit as part of the contract signing process.
So long as the bank account that you link to Sweeten Secure Pay is the same account linked to your Quickbooks account, you’ll see deposits come through as you would any other ACH payments.
Absolutely not! You’ll continue to receive a separate invoice that you can pay by ACH or credit card within 30 days.
