Can I have my customer pay for an invoice directly, without going through the portal?

Yes. You can send a direct payment URL using the Share Invoice Link option. Here’s how:

Note: You can only share invoices that are not in Draft status.

  • Go to the Invoices module on the left sidebar.
  • Select the invoice for which you want to share a direct payment URL.
  • Click the More dropdown in the top-right corner.
  • Select Share Invoice Link.
Share Invoice Link
  • Keep the Visibility as Public.
  • Choose an expiration date for the URL.
  • Click Generate Link.
Generate Invoice Link
  • Click Copy Link to copy the URL to your clipboard.
Copy Invoice Link

You can share this link with your customer and they would be able to pay without going through the portal.
