Sending an online invoice link to a customer

Each invoice in MYOB has a unique link that you can send to a customer. Just go to the Share menu and choose Copy link in an invoice and copy the link. You can now send it to the customer so they can view their invoice online.

If you like, you can still email your invoices as you usually do, or print or export them to PDFs. But unlike PDFs or printed invoices, an online invoice is live. This means if you send the customer a link to an online invoice, the customer will see any changes you make to the invoice in real time.

You can send the online invoice link using whatever method that works for you, like:

  • via email—send the link in an email from your business's email program, like Outlook or Gmail

  • via messaging app—if you use Teams, WhatsApp or another messaging app, include the link in a quick message

  • via text message—add the link to an SMS and send it to your customer's phone

  • via social media—flick the link to a customer via direct message.

Customers can pay you online — even from a printed invoice

Only available for Australian online invoice payments users

If you send your customer a printed invoice – and you've set up online invoice payments – they can still view and pay the invoice online. A QR code is automatically added to your invoice when you print it or export it as a PDF. When the customer scans this QR code using their phone, they can view the online invoice and easily pay it online.
