For freelancers and small businesses the invoicing application of PeachPay will be indispensable. You can quickly and easily send a professional invoice following these simple steps;

Click ‘create your first invoice’ on the invoice page and you will see the new invoice page. Create first invoiceThe first thing you will want to do is add the details of the first client. Click ‘Add customer’ and fill in the form like below;

Now optionally fill out the project name. From the drop down menu select the date the payment is due. Optionally the clickbox to the right of the due date sends a reminder email 48 hours before the invoice is due. If necessary you can add a message for your client. Then list the goods or services billable.

So long as you have connected a Stripe account you will be able to offer your client the payment options of ACH direct bank transfer and credit card. If you have connected a coinbase account you also can offer to accept payment in various cryptocurrencies. If the options are available you can choose to offer the client by ticking the box.

Now there are processing fees associated with credit card transactions. You have the option to either pay those fees yourself, split them with the client or have the client pay all the fees. Select your option.
