Enter the PayPal email address you would like to use, and check the boxes to “enable” the payment option and “add to all Invoice Templates”.

Accelerated Onboarding Available: If desired, you can use an email address that does not have an existing PayPal account. PayPal will email you with instructions on setting up a PayPal account after the first payment is received. We recommend setting up a PayPal account directly on the PayPal site to ensure you meet all PayPal’s requirements for opening an account.

Client Payment experience using PayPal

Your clients can pay you online using the Pay Now button on web-view of the invoice.

Clicking this option will take your client to the PayPal payment processing pop-up. When they click “Pay Now”, they will be redirected to PayPal where they can make the payment using their card or PayPal account.

Note: They will only see Paypal as a payment option if the invoice is in a currency supported by Paypal. Here is a link to view supported currencies.
