Accept PayPal Payments

Accepting PayPal payments allows your customers to pay your invoices securely using their PayPal account.

Invoice2go has partnered with PayPal to allow you to accept PayPal payments on every invoice you send to your customers. Once enabled, your invoices will include the PayPal icon on them and the option to pay with PayPal. If at anytime you decide to disable PayPal payments at the account or invoice level, your future invoice(s) will not include the PayPal payment option.

There are no extra apps required to accept PayPal payments —  just link and authorize your PayPal business account with your Invoice2go account to start accepting payments. If you don’t have a PayPal Business account yet and you would like to accept PayPal payments, you can sign up for one here. Once you link PayPal account, you will receive a welcome email from Invoice2go. Please note if you have a PayPal personal account, you can add that to Invoice2go. Once you start receiving and claiming PayPal payments made through Invoice2go, your personal account will automatically change to a business account with no additional setup required.
