      As a Client, how do I pay my Invoices automatically?

      As a Client, if you're being billed for subscription-based services or products by a Business Owner, you can easily save your payment details so that you're automatically billed each time you're invoiced.

      This is done via Recurring Payments in FreshBooks, and works together with Recurring Templates to automatically bill you every time an Invoice is generated and sent to you.

      You can also remove your saved payment information if you want to opt out of Recurring Payments at any time. Read below on how to save, update and remove your payment information.

       

      If the Business Owner entered the credit card details on your behalf, or if their business requires automatic payments, only they can remove the credit card details themselves.

       

      Save Your Payment Information

      1.  Open the Invoice from the email that was sent to you and click on the View Invoice buttonEmail with view invoice button.
      2. Under the Recurring Payment section, leave the toggle enabled on if you want to automatically have all future recurring Invoices paid automatically

      Remove Your Payment Information

      Note: If you don't see the trash can icon, this means the owner has inputted the credit card details on your behalf. Please reach out to the Business directly if you need the card removed.

      1. Open any invoice that you received in the past from your email, or log into your Client account if you've been saving your Invoices in FreshBooks
      2. On the Invoice that is automatically billing you, any saved payment information will appear here (or you can click on Manage Payments)

      6. The Recurring Invoice will no longer automatically bill you again and will need to be paid manually each time by you now. If you've saved the card or bank account to your account, you'll still be able to use it to pay off new Invoices.
