    What is Paya Connect Quick Invoicing?


    Paya Connect Quick Invoice UI
    Paya Connect Quick Invoice API


    Quick Invoicing is a Paya Connect solution that allows merchants to send payable invoices via email to get paid for services rendered faster.  The main purpose of a quick invoice request is to:

    • Ensure verified payee data is provided to the payor before the payment initiation;
    • Provide ease of use to the payor, who has minimal data to enter for a payment;
    • Provide confirmation of payment to the payor and payee; and
    • Facilitate reconciliation of the related payment both for the payee and the payor

    Paya Connects Quick Invoice solution can also be integrated into many software solutions, including ERPs.  Currently Paya Connect has integrated quick invoicing solutions with the following ERPs. 

    • Sage 100
    • Acumatica
    • Intacct
    • (more coming soon)

    Within Paya Connect there are multiple use cases for providing these capabilities that we refer to as Quick Invoicing.  

    • API Driven solutions: Partners with integrated tools will initiate a API request to generate Quick Invoices via their 3rd party software solution.  These software solutions can be bespoke one-off tools built for a specific customer or a large ERP and everything in-between.  
      • If you are a integrator looking to build a solution that leverages Paya Connects Quick Invoicing tools please reach out to sdksupport@paya.com 
    • Paya Connect UI driven: Merchants that are using Paya Connect's User Interface may have access to the Quick Invoicing solution to generate payable invoicing within the UI.
