How to use Payments and Invoicing
1. Verify your business
A simple onboarding process gets you up and running in minutes. B12 has partnered with Stripe to bring you proven invoicing software for a convenient and secure online business workflow. We’ll collect a few details from you to quickly complete verification.
Connect any US-based bank account to B12 Payments and Invoicing so that when you receive payments, you issue a payout and the funds are sent to your account. After verifying your bank account and contact information, start using the Payments and Invoicing dashboard to create personalized invoices.
2. Customize invoices
Begin with our user-friendly invoice template, then customize each new invoice to include your business name and logo, client details, invoice number, issue date, due date, and specific billable items, such as product/service title, quantity, description, price, tax percentage, and total.
3. Bill clients
Once you’ve customized an invoice, it only takes a few clicks to email it to your client, requesting their payment. Hit send, then your client promptly receives an email from your business containing a secure landing page link, where they can pay online via credit card or ACH.
Payments and Invoicing safely processes your client’s information and for their protection, we never store payment details. Once a client submits a payment, you’ll both receive a confirmation email for your records.
B12 sends payment reminders
Automated payment reminder emails make it effortless to engage with clients and receive your money on time. These reminders alert clients to upcoming due dates and overdue payments. B12 issues reminders for you automatically, so it’s like your invoices practically pay themselves.
After each payout, you receive your money quickly. Depending on your bank, funds from credit card payments hit your account within 2 days, and funds from ACH payments are available within 5 days. Navigate to the Payouts tab of your Payments and Invoicing dashboard to track past and upcoming payouts.
Automate recurring invoices
Payments and Invoicing allows you to set up recurring invoicing to bill clients and receive online payments on a regular basis. If you regularly issue the same invoice to clients, you should consider using recurring invoices to save the time and hassle of copying invoices each time.
