Adding a payment link to your invoices on mobile

This article explains how to use the FreeAgent mobile app to add a payment link to your invoice PDFs.

Please note:

  • If you don’t have any payment solutions enabled, connecting to Stripe or PayPal, will enable the payment link setting by default.

  • If you already have a payment solution enabled, you’ll need to follow the steps below to enable the payment link settings.

  • Enabling the payment link settings will add a payment link to all future invoices you create that have the Stripe or PayPal option selected. This includes invoices created from a recurring invoice profile and those currently in draft.

1. Enable the online payment link settings

Tap the three-lined 'hamburger' icon at the top-left of the FreeAgent mobile app and select your business name.


Select ‘Payment solutions’ in the ‘Connections & Add-ons’ section.


Select 'Default invoice settings'.


Toggle the ‘Add payment link to PDF invoices’ setting and select 'Save' in the top-right. Please note that you’ll need to have connected to Stripe or PayPal first.


2. Select a payment option for your invoice

When you’re creating an invoice using the FreeAgent mobile app, choose which provider you want to take the invoice payment by selecting ‘Manage’ in the ‘Payments enabled’ section and toggling the relevant option.


3. Activate the portal link

The invoice will be payable online using the payment link as soon as it's sent or marked as sent.

If you're emailing the invoice using the FreeAgent mobile app, select ‘Send in an email’. As soon as the email is sent, your customer will be able to pay online.


If you’re not emailing the invoice using the FreeAgent mobile app, select the three dots in the top-right and select ‘Mark as sent’ from the menu. You can then send the invoice to your customer manually and allow them to pay the invoice online.


A payment link will then be added to the invoice preview and PDF above the bank details.
