Reminders for Invoices

In PayMaker, it's easy to establish auto reminders, or to send a manual reminder, to let customers or clients know when an invoice is either past due or is coming up as due.

    • Enable the reminder by checking the box next to Email the customer
    • Determine how many days before or after the invoice due date the reminder should be sent
    • Determine the user the reminder should come from
    • Use our Subject line or edit it to preference
    • Edit the body of the letter to preference
    • On the right hand side, there are options in the drop down to enter coding that will auto populate fields from the invoice
