6. Enter the Due date. If you have the Invoice date and Invoice number you can add them too. You can make this bill a recurring payment.

7. You have the option to add Line Items. These can help you break down the invoice total into different items. Add a Description and Amount and +Add another line if needed.

Note: Line Items

Line items won’t be available for recurring payments.

Note: Synced with an accounting software?

  • QuickBooks Online- You’ll be able to see extra attributes such as QuickBooks category and class. See a full list here.
  • Xero- The line items will show you the fields that match with the ones in Xero.


It’s a good idea to leave yourself a note advising what this is for.
