How to collect payments from your customers online via credit card with OfficeBooks.

Credit card clearance is available for companies based in the USA, Canada, the UK, and Ireland.

Initial setup
  • Go to the settings menu in OfficeBooks and select "Receive Payments"
  • Click the "Connect with Stripe" button to link your Stripe account to your OfficeBooks account.
  • If you don't already have a Stripe account, you will be prompted to create one.  It's extremely quick and easy (that's why we selected Stripe).  You don't even need a merchant bank account.
  • That's it.  All done with the setup!

Collecting Payments

Option 1
  • Create an invoice as you normally would.
  • Click the "Send by email" button to issue the invoice to your customer via email.
  • Sit back and wait - you'll get an email when the payment is made.
Option 2
  • If your customer has provided their credit card details to you, you can enter them yourself.
  • From the invoice screen, click the "charge to credit card" button.
  • A secure payment terminal will be displayed for you to enter the payment details.
