While Maroo is as simple and easy as those other payment apps, there are some major differences between us and them–namely all of the features that makes Maroo perfectly tailored to the weddings & events industry!

Here's a quick rundown of how Maroo is different than the generic payment apps:

  • Maroo looks like it was designed for pros in the events and weddings industry–putting your logo and brand front and center without all the clutter

  • Maroo lets you request payments from clients (both corporate and social) and easily pay your freelancers on Maroo as well!

  • No daily processing limits: no need to break down your invoices into $2,500s

  • You choose how you want your clients to pay when you are setting up the payment request (options are credit card, debit card, or bank transfer/ACH)

  • Bank transfers/ACH are totally FREE for you and for your clients

  • All cards process at a flat 3.5% fee and you can choose to have Maroo pass on the fee to the client rather than you having to do the math on your end

  • Maroo lets you set up a payments schedule for your payment requests (just set the due dates and the amount that is due for each milestone!)

  • You can add auto-reminders for any payment requests to your clients (they will go to your clients 1 month out, 1 week out, 3 days ahead, 1 day ahead and then remind them when they are overdue as well)

  • You can also send manual reminders if you want

  • All payments process to your business account within 1-4 business days, with the average being 2! (Cards process typically 1-2 days and bank transfers (ACH) are usually closer to 4 business days. Learn more about our processing times here.

  • Your clients can pay securely using mobile and desktop with signup or as a guest (they do not have to create an account or download anything in order to use Maroo)

  • All of your transactions are tracked and organized in one place (and its searchable!)

  • Seamless integration with Quickbooks Online

  • Ability to request a refund for any clients
