Letting your customers pay their invoice(s) online is one of the most interesting features of our InvoiceCloud. To be able to let your customers pay your invoices on the spot, you'll need a connection with either Mollie or Stripe.
Mollie and Stripe are two online services that allow you to perform online payments. Using the link with Teamleader Focus, it allows you to offer customers their preferred method of payment. You can set up both services via the Marketplace in your personal account, at the top right-hand corner.
Multi-currency on InvoiceCloud
If your invoice is made in a different currency (not EUR), both the Stripe and the Mollie integration are compatible with multi currency. Your customer will be able to pay online by credit card. The amount to pay will be converted to EUR.
Stripe is an American company that specialises in online payments via credit card. If you don't have an account yet, don't worry. We've made it easy for you: you can create and link an account straight from Teamleader Focus.
Stripe will ask you some questions regarding your company activity, bank data and your identity. After that, you only need to grant authorisation to Stripe and there you go; your account has been linked!
Just note: Stripe only accepts credit card payments. If you want to offer other payment methods as well, Mollie is your go-to-software!
Mollie is a Dutch company that provides an integration with most common payment methods. You can create an account via their website. Because payments are sensitive, creating an account can be an exhaustive matter. We'll guide you through the necessary steps right here:
1. Complete account information
After you've registered yourself on the website, Mollie will ask you to complete your account information. You'll have to provide them with some essential info about your company, such as:
- a VAT number
- a known person with the Chamber of Commerce
- a technical contact of your company.
- You'll have to agree with Mollie's terms and conditions before you can continue.
2. Create a website profile
Your profile at Mollie contains all of the data from the website you want to use to link with their services. Your website has to contain a few obligatory elements. If this is not the case, you won't be able to finish the integration. This is a checklist you can consult on the Mollie website as well.
Finished everything? Then Mollie will perform a check to see if all of the required info on your website is visible enough. Don't worry, this check is done pretty quickly. As soon as this has happened, you will find your API key on the Developers page. We'll need this later on to finish the integration with Teamleader Focus.
3. Activate payment methods
Finished step 1 and 2? Then it's time for the real thing: selecting your payment methods. Mollie offers a wide range of possibilities, such as iDEAL, PayPal, bank transfer, credit card... The payment methods you select here, are the ones that will turn up on InvoiceCloud as well.
Some payment methods (such as PayPal) require a separate account. Mollie provides the necessary steps to do this in most cases.
4. Activate payments
Last but not least: enter your account number to which Mollie can transfer all received payments.
Before Mollie can pay you your profits, you'll have to provide them with some info, such as:
- a copy of your passport
- the stakeholders
- your bank account number.
5. Link to Teamleader Focus
In Teamleader Focus, navigate to Integrations/Marketplace and search for 'Mollie'. The only thing you need to enter, is your API key.
Remember step 2? You can find that API key in your Mollie account at 'Website profile'. At the bottom of the page you'll find your unique key. Enter it, and your account is linked to Teamleader Focus.
If you have already received a full payment for the total of an invoice via InvoiceCloud, your customer cannot add a new payment to the invoice. The invoice is permanently marked as paid and cannot be paid again.
If you want to change the amount of the invoice and receive a new payment from the customer, we advise you to credit the invoice and send a new invoice to your customer, which they will be able to pay via InvoiceCloud.
That's it, now go and get those invoices paid!
