Accept PayPal Payments

Accepting PayPal payments allows your customers to pay your invoices securely with their PayPal account.  With Invoice2go, you have the flexibility to choose which invoices you will accept payments by PayPal.

If you don’t have a PayPal Business account yet and you would like to accept PayPal payments, you can sign up for one here. Once you link your PayPal account, and accept a payment, you will receive a welcome email from Invoice2go.

If you already have a personal PayPal account, please add that to Invoice2go using the steps outlined in this article depending on which device you use. Once you start receiving and claiming PayPal payments made through Invoice2go, your personal account will automatically change to a business account with no additional setup required.

Venmo & PayPal Credit

If you are offering PayPal as a payment option via Invoice2go, you may also have the ability to offer PayPal Credit & Venmo through PayPal. As the seller, there is no extra work required to set up or accept these payments through these methods. Since both of these payment options (PayPal Credit & Venmo) process through PayPal, you will notice no difference from your end. However, when your customer is paying the invoice, they will be presented with all three options (as long as you have PayPal enabled in settings).

*Note: Venmo & PayPal Credit cannot be individually toggled. Meaning, these new payment options will be offered if you have PayPal enabled in your Invoice2go settings, and can only be disabled by disabling the PayPal option overall in the payment options settings. 

 

Helpful Tips

  • Within your PayPal Business account, you have access to payment history, recent payments and payment details. In the notes section for each payment, you can reference the Invoice2go invoice number.
  • If your customers try to pay your invoices with PayPal but they don’t have a PayPal account yet, they will be prompted to create a PayPal account. Once they have completed their PayPal account registration, they will be directed back to your Invoice2go invoice and can proceed to complete their payment.
  • All transaction emails will be delivered by PayPal directly to you and your customers
  • Accepting PayPal payments creates new opportunities for potential customers. Your added flexibility of how you allow your customers to pay you makes it easier for people to do business with you.
  • If you are looking for information PayPal Here, note that we have discontinued the support of the quick sale mobile point-of-sale feature.  You will still have two options available to accept card payments on the stop: 1. You can charge a debit or credit card for payment on any unpaid invoice. Simply open an unpaid invoice, tap ‘Charge a card’, enter the card details, and then tap ‘Charge,’ to take payment. 2. Download the PayPal Here app from the App Store and use it to take payments on the go.
  • If you are unable to access payments on your mobile device, update to the latest version of Invoice2go on the App Store (iPhone and iPad) or Google Play Store (Android).
