Adding direct deposit bank details to invoices

Direct deposit is a popular payment option which lets your customers pay directly into your bank account. In Australia, the New Payments Platform makes this a much quicker payment method.

To include your direct deposit banking details on invoices, you'll need to customise your invoice form.
