HireHop Equipment Rental Software now gives you the ability to to take payments from your customers online, or even in-person and over the phone, making it easier for your customers to pay and for you to stay ahead of your finances.
When sending clients an invoice document, you can include a link that when clicked, it takes your customer to a page branded with your logo, showing an invoice, the balance and all other details. The page allows them to pay online using a credit or debit card in over 135 currencies.
Your customer can pay either the entire amount or part of the invoice. As soon as the payment has cleared, the payment appears against the invoice in HireHop and gets exported to your accounting software.
Payments can be made by the customer using any credit or debit card, as well as Google Pay, from almost every country in the world.
To use this feature, you don’t need to get an expensive credit card subscription, or special bank accounts, and there is no fixed monthly fee from the credit card company. All you need to do is signup for a free Stripe account and subscribe to the Payments plugin in HireHop which only costs $1.40 per user each month. There is a fixed transaction fee made by Stripe for each payment which can be found here that varies depending on which country you are based.
Once you have subscribed to Stripe, in the HireHop Settings->Company settings page, just add the Stripe public and private keys and enter them into the corresponding boxes in HireHop.
To add a payment button in your invoice documents, in each document you can add the following code (or similar):
<p style="text-align: center;">
<a name="invoice:link" style="border:1px solid #777; border-radius:4px; padding:1em; background:#DDD; cursor:pointer;">Click here to pay</a>
The above code will create a button that takes your customer to a dedicated payment page which works and display in different ways, depending on which document merge field you use. There are 4 different document merge fields that open different types of payment page :
invoice:link– An itemised list and allows the user to set a payment amount.
invoice:link_min– Just shows the total and allows the user to set a payment amount.
invoice:link_full– An itemised list and the user can only pay the balance.
invoice:link_full_min– Just shows the total and the user can only pay the balance.
