Introducing SMS Invoicing

We recently unveiled a cool new feature for collecting payments – SMS Invoice.

SMS Invoice as the name suggests is an invoice (essentially a Payment Link) sent via SMS to a customer. As a merchant you can specify the amount of payment, the mobile number of customer, name of customer and description and transaction id for your reference. The customer receives a SMS with the above details and a payment link which he/she can click to make the payment.
All in all its same as email invoice but using sms rather than email.

This post will guide you to start using SMS Invoice.
