Collapse All Expand All

What is Send an Invoice?

Send an Invoice is a feature that allows you to send an invoice to a customer and collect payment electronically (credit card, debit card, bank transfer) for that invoice.

What is Accept a Payment?

Accept a Payment is a feature that provides you with a unique payment link. This payment link leads to a payment form (displayed in a secure web browser). Your customers (or donors, if you have a nonprofit organization) complete the form to send you a payment (or donation) electronically. This feature is perfect for those businesses that need a flexible way to accept payments from customers yet don’t create invoices.
