Receiving Your First Payment
Now that you have Wave Payments turned on, you can receive your first payment in two ways, each directly through your invoice.
- Send your invoice to your customer, and they will be able to enter their credit card or bank payment details and process the payment themselves through the form that appears on the Invoice.
- If you have your customer’s credit card information, or they are willing to provide this over the phone to you, you will be able to process the credit card payment yourself from within Wave. To do this, you’ll need to locate the invoice in question and click Record Payment > Charge a Credit Card. Enter your Customer’s credit card details then click Submit Payment.
You will also see an option here to save this credit card information within Wave (fully encrypted) for future payments!
Save customer credit cards to let them make repeat purchases easily by phone - but be sure you have your customer’s explicit permission each time you charge their card!
