E-Invoicing1 is a smarter way to send invoices and record payments. Released as a QuickBooks 2015 subscription enhancement, E-Invoicing with QuickBooks Payments is a fee based service.
You configure E-invoicing under the 'Company Preferences' tab of the Payments Preferences.
You can also configure E-invoicing options for each of your customers.
With e-Invoicing you and your clients can:
- Send Invoices with a Pay Now link, HTML view or Plain Text view using Outlook or Webmail
- Accept Payments by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or ACH Bank Transfer
- QuickBooks data is updated, download the payments directly into QuickBooks
This improved feature is available in all versions of QuickBooks 2016 desktop software. To access this feature, click the Email icon at the top of a displayed Create Invoices window, or optionally, from the menu bar, by selecting File, Send Forms.
Credit card payments and ACH bank transfers are permitted if you have a Merchant Agreement, subject to fees. ACH bank transfers have a $.50 fee per transaction (payment) regardless of the invoice amount. For more information: http://quickbooks.intuit.com/payments/
