Receiving Payments

You can receive payments from your customers either manually or automatically. Let’s look into all the ways you can receive payments.

Manually Charging your Customer

Receiving Payments using Auto-charge

Learn how Auto-charge is instrumental in receiving payments for your recurring invoices.

In Zoho Invoice, you can receive payments using Auto-charge by using Client Portal and also by adding your customer’s card to the recurring invoice.

Client Portal

You can charge your customers automatically through Auto-charge. Client Portal is a feature in Zoho Invoice which helps your customers to view their payment history, recent transactions and allow them to make payments online.
