In addition to those amazing perks – our integration with Square provides this features to our users when sending invoices in Iris:

ACH Payments

Let your clients pay by ACH bank transfer – with Iris + Square ACH. Square users located in the United States can immediately begin accepting ACH payments. ACH payments are a simple, secure way for your clients to pay invoices – with lower processing fees (1% per transaction) than credit card payments.

E-Gift Card Payments

Iris users can now permit their clients to pay for an invoice (or part of an invoice) with a Square eGift Card. This gives the opportunity for friends and family to purchase gift cards for your clients which they can then use toward their invoices in Iris. Great for wedding gifts, birthdays, holidays, or baby showers! To learn more about how to sell eGift Cards, click here.


AfterPay is a buy now, pay later (or BNPL) option where a customer pays for a purchase over time in installments. As the seller, you are paid upfront! Available to begin using immediately, Iris users may enable AfterPay as a payment option through the Iris + Square integration.


Your clients will also have the option to use CashApp to make a payment on their invoices sent in Iris with our Square Integration. 

Receive Tips

Square users may choose to incorporate a Tip field on all Iris invoices. The Tip field is optional, and is not automatically included on your invoices.
