How to supercharge your clients' invoices

If your clients aren’t already using online invoices, it’s easy to get them set up. They'll be able to send customised invoices straight from Xero and email automatic payment reminders to prompt their customers. So your client can track who’s paid and who hasn’t.

Setting up a payment gateway with services like PayPal or Stripe mean your clients' customers can pay their invoice with a credit card. It’s free to set up and they only pay merchant fees per transaction.

Payments are automatically matched to sales invoices and marked as paid. Transaction references are displayed and transaction fees are easily tracked using a separate billing code for PayPal and Stripe. So both you and your clients know where they stand.

Setting up a payment service

PayPal is an easy way to get paid online. It accepts credit cards, debit cards and PayPal payments in more than 25 currencies.

Stripe accepts credit and debit cards. It displays the well known Visa or Mastercard logo on the invoice and it can handle payments from anywhere in the world.

It’s easy to set up and you can choose to have both options on your invoice. 

You can guide clients through the Xero settings, or look up the help page. It’s also helpful to either set up merchant fees in their costs or set up Stripe to automatically pass processing fees on to their customers. Pricing is available by country on the PayPal and Stripe websites.
