Doing Online Payments
To accept Online Payments, make sure the preferred payment provider is enabled under Business Settings > Payments. Next to that, you will need to indicate which payment methods will be used for which payment providers. For example, you can choose to let PayPal payments go directly through PayPal, and have Ideal and Creditcard payments go through Mollie.
Once you've set up the Online Payments, you can send your clients links to make sure they can do the payment through your preferred payment method.
You can go to your financial app, find any invoice and under options at the top right of your screen, click on "email including pay-link". This will send the invoice as a PDF to the client, with the link to all available payment methods to immediately pay the outstanding amount through the preferred payment method. If you'd like to set up your own email, you can get the payment URL in the invoice under "Pay".
When the payment of the client goes through, this is automatically updated in Virtuagym. You can see all Online Payment invoices by using the filters in your Financial app under "invoices".
