Pay now feature on invoices


I want to turn on the pay now feature on our invoices to make it easier for customers to pay an invoice rather than phoning up with CC details for us to run manually. We are on MYOB essentials.

I have a couple of question that the help team on the phones cant seem to give definitive answers on.


1. When a customer pays using the pay now function on the invoice does it mark off the invoice automatically and imediatly? 


2. Will it then email us a notifacation that the invoice has been paid?


3. Are we able to mark off invoices manually if we receive a notification saying its been paid?




We are a service based business that mails out completed jobs and focussed on a quick turnaround. We like to dispatch jobs within a couple of hours of them being paid. I'm hoping the pay now function will aid in speeding up this process.

The worry is that we will receive payments with no notification and we will have no way of knowing if the invoice has been paid and we can send the job out.


Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: Pay now feature on invoices

Hi @NSDynamics 


Within MYOB Essentials, as noted on our help article Online payments, when the payment is made the details would be entered automatically and the invoice closed off.


The owner of the file will receive an email notification to advise that an invoice has been paid and some details about the invoice.


As the payment closes the invoice off automatically you don’t need to close the invoices off. Instead this is done for you by the system.


Do note that the total amount of payments is deposited into your bank account on the following day
