Using the payments links is the simplest way to accept payments made with credit card or bank account. This feature is available in the VulaCoin add-on to pay Invoices and Proforma Invoices. This provides convenience and simplicity for your customers, so the amount of on-time payments will increase.
For example, you can add a payment link to the e-mail with the (proforma) invoice, as a result, the customer can make payment quickly by clicking onto such link instead of logging in to their Portal page.
To create a direct payment link, please use the patterns below:
To pay the Invoice:
by invoice ID
by invoice number
To pay the Proforma Invoice:
by proforma invoice ID
by proforma invoice number
