What makes us different?
No cash held in e-wallets, no transfers to holding accounts. Unlike debit card, credit card or PayPal transactions, you receive your money instantly, as soon as a customer responds to your request. And the funds go directly into your nominated bank account.
We're one of the most affordable payment systems for small business. We offer a flat transactions fee of 20p per request, only payable once a customer pays via our service.
We use existing banking technology to give you a simple but safe way to get paid. Your account details are never shared, not even when we send the payment request so there's no risk of the wrong amount being paid or the money being sent to someone else in error. Incomeing generates secure requests that directs customers straight to their mobile or internet banking provider. We never see your account details and don't share your information - we simply enable your payment requests and let you know when you've been paid.
No monthly subscriptions. No large complicated transactions fees. No unexpected costs. Just one small flat fee of 20p, which we only charge when a customer pays you via our service.
We’re working to make business payments fair and simple, which is why our cost structure is designed to help small businesses like yours grow, rather than add to your outgoings.
"I can bill my customers by text or email promptly, and get paid without fuss direct to my bank. Customers think it's great too, they don't have the faff of entering my bank details. Once I'd registered, billing customers is so easy. Just a text from me, and a couple of clicks from them and the money is already in my bank"
Frequently Asked Questions
Want to find out more about Incomeing and how it works? Take a look at the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below.
How is Incomeing regulated?
The payments sector is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to ensure the highest standards of technology, security and integrity. We have become agents of Moneyhub to ensure the Incomeing service is fully compliant with these industry regulations, giving you peace of mind that our app is supported by these standards, to which both Incomeing and Moneyhub can be held accountable.
How much does it cost to send a payment request?
We don’t believe in large transaction fees or monthly subscriptions. That’s why we only charge a small fee, and we only charge it if your customer pays you. For every payment that is made, we will only charge 20p. Our billing period is monthly, and we will send you a Request to Pay to settle our bill.
What do I need to get started?
What if my bank isn’t listed on the Incomeing app?
Only banks which have joined the Open Banking network can be listed on our app. Most UK banks are now members, and more are being added regularly. If your bank is not yet showing in the app, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I request a payment?
You can send requests for payment directly to your customers simply and quickly.
How quickly does the money reach my account when a customer makes a payment?
You should see the money in your nominated bank account as soon as your customer has made the payment.
What will I see on my statement when I receive a payment?
Your bank statement will show the same reference that you applied to the payment request when you created it within the app. If you have linked the app with your business accounting software, then we will also apply any received payment to the associated invoice automatically.
Can I share my thoughts on how to improve the app?
We would love to hear any thoughts and ideas on how we can improve. Send us an email to email@example.com to let us know your feedback.
Using QR codes to raise payment requests when Face to Face with your customer
If you are Face to Face with your customer you may want a more personal approach to requesting payment, one with a better experience than sending an email or SMS. QR codes are a simple way to ask your customer for payment. Create a payment request within the App, if you intend to generate a code you do not need to input an email address or a mobile telephone number. Select the delivery method of Face to Face and continue. A QR code will be generated instantly which your customer can scan with their device camera.Once scanned a URL will be displayed which they should open, this is the request for payment, with all the details securely embedded within it.
How will requests sent by SMS appear to my customer?
As default requests generated by SMS will be sent via your own mobile telephone number. This promotes confidence with your customer that the requests are from a genuine source. You do have the option to disable this function from the App Features section within the App settings. Disabling sending SMS from your device transfers the service to our inhouse service, when customers receive via this method the SMS is displayed as being generated by Incomeing
Can I send requests via WhatsApp?
Yes, you can. WhatsApp needs to be already installed on your device. Our App will detect if it is available When creating the request you must include your customers email address. Once the request has been created you can elect to send via WhatsApp.
What are the different status of payment requests I can see?
*REQUEST MADE - a request that has been created and sent to your customer.
What is a 'Heads Up' Notification
The most important relationships in your business are the ones you have with your customer. We want to ensure we treat your customer as if they were our own. They need to have confidence in any request for payment that they receive. To build on this level of confidence and give your customers assurity that all requests for payment are genuine and secure we will send a message in support of the very first request for payment you send to a customer. This 'Heads Up' advice lets your customer know you use a payment service provided by Incomeing, and that the request they receive is genuine and valid.
Sending requests via SMS from my own device - iMessage
iMessages are texts that you send to another iPhone or iPad. These messages are encrypted and appear in blue text bubbles. iMessages have built in security which can prevent payment links from displaying correctly if the sending and receiving parties have not previously communicated by iMessage before. If you have a customer who says the link does not display correctly all they need to do is to reply to the iMessage. Replying has the effect of establishing a two-way communication and will activate the payment link. You will not need to resend the payment link again.
