system generate invoices with line by line detailed information. Invoices are automatically converted to PDFs, attached via email and sent to the customer’s billing email address. Customers simply follow a link in the email to pay their open invoices. All invoices are kept within the payment gateway and can be easily retrieved or re-sent with a click of a button. There is no limit to the amount of invoices that can be sent. And, merchants don’t need a website to get paid. Let’s take a look at how easy it is.
First you click on “Add Invoice”
Then you add the invoice on this screen
Then you select terms and amount and add an e-mail at a minimum (you can add a lot more if you wish)
then you “Create Invoice” by clicking this button.
Then you’ll see this screen confirming you did it right…
Then if you find you made a “boo-boo” and need to fix your mistake…that’s ok you can edit it like this…
After the invoice is sent the customer should just pay it and you should get a e-mail saying it was paid and you can download that to your “QuickBooks” or other accounting software via other interfaces in NMI’s gateway (see this website and NO they don’t cost any more money).
With that said you can do a three manual things to the invoice if they haven’t paid you via the e-mailed link.
First option would be “Pay The Invoice” (Hey the customer called you and gave you the card….
Resend the invoice – because customers never lose their bills right? Wait. Ok. Yes I need this feature.
Or I have some other reason, such as refunds or customer service or losing a job bid and I need to cancel the invoice.
Manually paying an invoice is almost identical to a virtual terminal function, except everything is filled out except the payment info which you are taking by phone (or fax or mail or chat or text or whatever). So you’ll pull the invoice and be on this screen.
And then see this screen when it clears…
Of course we hope you don’t have to do any of that at all and they just CLICK ON THE LINK IN THE EMAIL and pay for the invoice on the “hosted one-time use secured server page” generate just for your customer.
