Donate buttons for non-profits, credit card on payment requests and a slick new home page
October 18, 2011 9 Comments
Thanks for providing feedback on the recent features we launched. Based on what you told us, we now have the following enhancements in IPN:
- Donate buttons
This is particularly useful if you are a non-profit and want to get paid for only 50 cents a payment from your web site. You can create blue and orange ‘Donate’ buttons when you add a new button from your ‘ECommerce Buttons’ menu on the left in IPN.
- Credit card payments on payment requests
We are extending credit card capabilities beyond QuickBooks invoices. Now as a small business when you turn CC capabilities ‘ON’ from your ‘Profile’ menu on the left in IPN, your customers can pay you using CC when they do an email payment from IPN or when then click the pay button on your payment request.
- Invoice/Reference # field in ‘Send Payment’ and ‘Request Payment’ flows
You can now track your payments or payment requests with a reference #. This reference # can be an account #, invoice # or any other identifier that you want to use.
- Memo field in ‘Custom Pay Link’
When customers pay from a customized pay link they can now enter a message. Some examples of messages could be ‘Payment for bolts delivered’, ‘Payment for account # 21269′, etc
- Emails on scheduled payments
You will now receive an email notification when a customer schedules a payment for a future date letting you know when the payment is scheduled for.
- New IPN home page
Slicker , cleaner home page that focuses on the key benefit to users (50 c payments) and other value added features (eCommerce payments, QB integration, etc)
As always…. please continue to provide feedback on what you like about the existing features of IPN and what enhancements you would like us to build to better serve your needs.
