Invoice generation

All invoices are generated automatically based on the appointment and payment details when your clients book via the front-end booking form. Invoices are attached to the selected notifications as PDF documents.

You can choose when to send a payment request to the customer:

  • the moment a new booking is made (type – new booking notification);
  • when the status of the booking has been changed (for example, 'pending' to 'approved');
  • after the appointment in a follow-up message to the customer (type – appointment reminder).

To do this, go to the Email Notifications section and tick the box Attach invoice in the relevant notification template(s).

You can also include an invoice link in your SMS notifications. Go to the SMS Notifications section and insert {invoice_link} code into your text message template(s).

When you schedule an appointment via the admin panel, make sure to attach the payment and choose to send notifications so the invoice is attached to the confirmation email.
