What’s new in WP Customer Area 7.4? Pay invoices online!
Let’s pay invoices online!
As part of the free plugin, you will find a new payments tab in your WP Customer Area settings to manage your invoices payments.
By default, you can accept manual payments (cheque, wired transfers), but we have 2 brand new gateways available to accept payments via PayPal accounts and from credit cards via Stripe.
You will also find a new page into Customer Area → Payments which separately list all the payments for each invoice.
You can filter the list by payments status, or even by selecting a date range.
Each payment has his own detail page resuming useful information that you can edit about the payer, selected gateway, paid object and payment data. There is even a “Notes” widget listing all the payment history actions.
If you own the notifications add-on, you will be able to edit the notifications messages in Settings → WP Customer Area → Notifications.
Invoices automatic statuses from payments
You will find in Settings → WP Customer Area → Invoices two fields allowing you to choose the status to set when the invoice gets fully paid, or when it gets refunded for instance.
Invoices payments history
Every single invoice on the admin area will now display a payment history table. Notice that you can also add payment manually from there.
You can now view any email or notification that get sent in Customer Area → Logs.
The conversation author can now decide to close the conversation to new replies.
