Cloud-based payment platform Dream Payments has teamed up with Quickbooks, and First Data’s Clover to bring QuickBooks capabilities to U.S. merchants this week.
This comes three months after Dream Payments first initiated a partnership with First Data last year, launching the Dream Payments POS for merchants using First Data’s Clover. It also follows Dream Payments’ successful pilot of a QuickBooks integration in Canada.
The partnership will allow Dream Payments’ business clients using any POS device in Clover’s line to sync with QuickBooks. After a purchase, QuickBooks will automatically and in real time record the sale, update inventory, collect and close invoices, and import sales tax.
CEO of Dream Payments Brent Ho-Young said that the integration will help businesses succeed. He added that, by combining QuickBooks and Clover in the Dream Payments POS, “we’re unlocking the cloud and simplifying the most complex aspects of running a successful business — customer experience, payments and accounting. Now businesses of any size can access a powerful commerce platform that traditionally only the largest retailers could afford.”
Founded in 2014 and with operations in Stamford, Connecticut, Dream Payments helps small businesses accept all payments, including chip cards, contactless cards, and mobile wallets. In addition to ties with Quickbooks and First Data, the company also counts TD Merchant Solutions and Chase Paymentech in its partnership ecosystem.
At FinovateSpring 2015, Dream Payments debuted its mobile POS device. Last fall, the company partnered with IBM to leverage its cloud and security capabilities. Dream Payments has raised $14.9 million. Brent Ho-Young is CEO.
