Why are Quickbooks Payment methods not showing on customer invoices?

All of a sudden, when I send invoices to customers through Quickbooks Online, the invoice only attaches as a static PDF, instead of the "View and Pay" button appearing in the email, allowing customers to pay online. 

The Credit Card and Bank Transfer checkboxes also do not show on my end when I am about to send the invoice to the customer. In my company settings, Payments is turned on under the "advanced" tab. 

What am I doing wrong? My account has been glitchy the last few days, as Class Tracking was also turned off on its own somehow.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
