    FAQ

    I don't see the option to use CardConnect in my Admin Tab?

    Please reach out to support@commonsku.com. The Support Team will add it for you!

    Can I use a different payment method, like ACH or bank transfer?

    commonsku doesn't have an ACH or bank transfer integration, but you can add links/banking details to your invoice's introduction or terms and conditions.

    Why can't my client pay their invoice on their phone?

    Your client may need to adjust their mobile phone settings to allow for pop-ups to make live payments on commonsku invoices or deposit invoices.

    Can a client's terms be something different, like Net 30, but still have the automatic option for them to pay by credit card?

    A client's default payment terms need to be "Credit Card" to automatically add the option to "Pay by Credit Card" on their invoice or deposit invoice. If you'd like to use different terms but still allow the client to pay by credit card, you can either:

    • select the box beside "'Pay by credit card" each time you create an invoice
    • set the client's default terms to "Credit Card," that way to option is always available, then change the terms inside of the invoice itself

    Who gets notified when a client pays by credit card?

    Email notifications are sent to the person listed as the point of contact at the bottom of the invoice form and to your team's invoicing contact.

    If you have admin access, you can:

    If you are using the CardConnect integration, your client will also receive a payment notification email that includes:

    • the invoice number and project name
    • the payment amount in the relevant currency  

    The client will not receive a payment notification if you use the Stripe integration.

    Does commonsku mark the invoices as Paid?

    commonsku doesn't automatically mark invoices as Paid. The best practice is to:

    1. Email the invoice through commonsku
    2. Export the invoice to your accounting platform
    3. Receive payment inside of your accounting platform
    4. Update the commonsku invoice's status to Paid 

    If you're using the QuickBooks Online integration, your commonsku invoices will automatically update to Paid once payment has been entered against the invoice in QBO.
