Adding a Payment Link

    General Settings - Confirmation Links - Adding a Payment Link  

    Description

    This tutorial will step you through the process of adding a payment link to the confirmation email. This example utilizes PayPal's Website Payments Standard payment option and the "||AMOUNT||" tag in the payment link. Other payment providers will work as long as you only have to replace the amount within the payment link. This will not automatically collect payment. It is only a link in the email that the end user can click to pay. The ||AMOUNT|| tag will be replaced with the ledger balance due at the time that the receipt is generated.

    1. First we need to generate the payment link. In this example we are using PayPal's Website Payments Standard.  Go to www.PayPal.com. Click the Business tab. Under the "Products & Services" menu Click the "Website Payments Standard" menu option.
