Sending a Payment Request later

To send a payment request with Edit Order, first create or edit an order as you normally would with Edit Order. When you save your order, Edit Order will check to see if there is an amount due on the order and present you with the following save options:

  • Send a Payment Request: This option will allow you to save your changes to this order and send out a payment request immediately after. If you have other notifications enabled, those notifications will also be sent out.
  • Save Order: This option only saves changes to your order without sending a payment request. If you have other notifications enabled, those notifications will still be sent out.

Please note that Edit Order will only prompt you with these save options if there is an amount due on the order. If a refund is due or if the order is an even exchange, then Edit Order will not prompt you for a save option.

If you want to just create the order or save your order changes without sending out a payment request immediately, you can click the Save Order button to do so. Edit Order will then just save your changes without sending a payment request. If you have other notifications or confirmation emails enabled, those notifications will still be sent out. You can send the payment request at a later time without having to re-edit the order.
