Can I accept card payments with PayPal with recurring transactions? I can do this with a regular invoice, but can't find the option when setting up recurring invoices.

Let me share some information about accepting card payments in QuickBooks, jackson16.

 

For now, setting up payments for your PayPal with a recurring transaction is unavailable in QuickBooks Online (QBO). You can only create templates for recurring transactions for expenses, or invoices. You'll want to search for a third-party application that supports your business needs. 

 

In connection with this, you can also take advantage of the Days in advance to create options on scheduled recurring templates. This way, you'll have visibility into future cash flow as well as the ability to send reminders to clients before the transaction date. For more information, check out this article for more details: Schedule Recurring Transactions Created With A Template.

 

QuickBooks provides different reports and projections to get a clear look at your current and future business finances. In case you want to know the amount of money moving in and out of your business and bank account, I have this information that you can read so you'll be guided: Track Your Cash Flow In QuickBooks Online.

You need a 3rd party app to do so. You can utilize a subscription management app or another app to reconcile Paypal transactions into QBO.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. Can this feature be made available please? Regular invoices can be paid via paypal, and I think it's fair to ask that recurring invoices should have the same capability too.
