Square has brought invoicing to its small business commerce toolkit, letting merchants send email bills to their customers. Square isn’t charging for the service, and it makes no money if a payer sends in a check or brings in cash. But if he selects an option to pay online with credit card, Square will process the transaction and charge its usual 2.75 percent fee. In the last few months, Square has added a lot of new features to its dashboard and core Register app, from customer feedback to pre-ordering.
