Why is the payment link not being attached to the invoices I email to my clients? I've been using this invoicing method for years and never had any problems until now.


Hi there, mashunya19,

Let’s get this sorted out so the Payment feature on your invoices is back up and running.

To help us resolve the problem, kindly check if your QuickBooks release version is up to date. Once verified, let’s check if online payment preference settings are turned on.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Go to the Edit menu at the top.
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click Payments from the list.
  4. Go to the Company Preferences tab.
  5. In the Online Payments section, make sure all the payment methods you'd like to use are checked.
  6. Click OK.

Once done, go ahead and email your invoices. That should already have the payment link.

For additional reference, I’m attaching helpful articles that you can check on for more detailed information:

Keep me posted on how things go, I’ll be sure to get back to you. Have a great day!

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.
