Enabling payments is where it all begins.

  1. On iOS, Android or Web, go to Settings – select “Payment Options.”
  2. Turn on on the switch for “Accept Debit and Credit Cards.”

Once payments are switched on, every invoice will include a “Pay Now” button, allowing your customers to click it to make a secure payment online.

Your company name will be displayed so customers know they’re securely paying you. To learn more, here are all the details on the fees and time to process your payment.

If you would prefer to control when you offer the debit and credit card payment option by each invoices, that’s totally possible.

  1. Switch “Accept debit and credit cards” on in Payment Options.
  2. Now, you will see a on/off switch whenever you create an invoice.

This makes it really convenient to tailor each invoice to suit your customer’s preferences. We recommend you keep this setting ON at the account level and turn it OFF at the invoice level for particular jobs.

 

Issuing a refund

Refunding your customer is easy. To avoid a common fraud scenario, refund the customer by card if that was their means of payment.

  1. Go to the individual invoice’s payment history – tap the transaction you wish to refund.
  2. Here, you will be prompted to refund the payment.
  3. Once the refund is processed, the processing fees will also be returned to you.
