After the payment has been made, the Invoice status will be updated to “Paid” and a payment record with a Stripe reference number is automatically created. Please note your customers can also make partial payments by entering an amount less than the amount due.

Note: While we support Stripe, we don’t support the ability to receive payments via ACH, Alipay and other specialized payment methods at this time, but we hope to continue adding more options in the future. Stay tuned to our blog for more updates
