Another strange month has gone by, and while the Corona crisis is far from being over, businesses are starting to adjust themselves to our bizarre, constantly-changing, unstable environment.
Here at vcita, we continue to work tirelessly to support the small business community and are prioritizing features that’ll help your business stay up and running during these challenging times.
Check out this month’s updates:
Your payments, Your control: Kiss those over-due invoices goodbye!
Now, more than ever, businesses need to be able to collect payments due for services provided fare and square. That means: so long overdue invoices and no more sitting around waiting to get paid!
You can now easily and securely store your clients’ credit cards on file, making it available for you to charge when a payment is due. Check out this article to learn more.
Unusual times call for unusual business: Introducing ‘Business unusual’ vcita and Mastercard’s new learning hub!
We’ve partnered with Mastercard to create the world’s first learning hub for small businesses! Click on the new Learning tab on your main menu to discover a rich collection of business-boosting FREE online courses.

Moving your business online? The vcita-Zoom integration has got you covered!

New text message settings available!
If you’re based in the US or Canada, you can now customize the auto-reply message your clients get when replying to your automated payment reminder, booking reminders, or marketing campaign send via text message. Due to some technical limitations, we can’t support two-way messaging just yet, but you’ll be able to customize your reply and let clients know how they should get in touch.
If you are located outside of the US or Canda, this option won’t be available at this time. We recommend making it clear to clients that you won’t receive any messages sent in response to automated text messages. You can set up an email announcement to do that! Another related feature available outside of the US and Canada is the ability to edit the sender’s name when sending text messages. You can customize the sender name from the ‘SMS Settings’ tab under the Auto Clients Message settings page.
Adding an item to your invoice? Search is available!
If you sell products along with your services, use the new search functionality to find the products you wish to add to any invoice. More on invoices here.
