Allow invoices to be paid online
Edit or create a new invoice template here. Select the two online payments options flagged in the image below before Saving.
When paying an invoice or retainer payment request, clients will be given a drop down option to select their payment method. They can choose between "Credit Card" or "eCheck".
Choosing "eCheck" allows your client to link their bank account to PantherPayments. They'll be able to easily make secure payments without having to enter their account and routing numbers ever again.
Charge a card directly or send a payment request
Click "New Payment" from any contact or matter.
Next, you can "Charge a Card" in person or one you stored on file or "Request a Payment" to email a link for your client to pay retainers on their own time. For more info on requesting a payment, click here!

Payment Plans for Recurring Billing

Give Refunds through PantherPayments
If an online payment was made with the new PantherPayments, you will have a new option available to you called "Refund". Refunding a payment will allow you to specify an amount of that payment that you would like to refund back to your client.
When refunded, a new payment named "Refund" will appear in your payments grid and your client will receive the funds in the original card or Electronic check bank account that was used to originally pay within 3-5 business days.
