Send Invoices Through Text Message?

While reading through this community, I see a lot of peoples problems with sending their invoices over email. 

1. Their invoice won't send over email

2. The customer cannot find the invoice email

3. Email takes too long to respond to 

 

So my question is, is there any way possible to text messaging to send my invoices? Perhaps attach my invoice document to a text message and send that text message to all applicable customers. 

 

If you've experimented with anything like this, please let me know. 

 

Thanks!

Send Invoices Through Text Message?

Hi, erikslikkerveer.

 

QuickBooks offers a user-friendly method for sending invoices to your customers. You can send a transaction link via SMS to your customers so they can view their invoices from there.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. On the invoice screen, click the Save and share link.
  2. Click the Copy link button.
  3. You can send the link via SMS to your customers.

To get more details about this process, here's an article for your reference: Create invoices in QuickBooks Online. It contains additional information on how to receive payments through QuickBooks payments or ACH transfer.

 

Feel free to drop me a reply below if you have any other invoice concerns. I'll be around to help. Have a good one.

Hi!

 

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. I do like texting my invoices, but I was also looking for an app that can integrate with QBO and send automated invoices through text message? Anything along those lines

 

Thanks!

I appreciate you for getting back to us here on the Community page, @erikslikkerveer.

 

QuickBooks integrates with multiple third-party apps. At this time, you can look a supported one that'll help you achieve your goal through the app center or from the Apps tab.

 

To look for an application using the app store:

 

  1. Open this link: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/app/apps/home.
  2. Set the US as a country/region.
  3. Search for an application from the search field.

 

From the Apps tab:

 

  1. Open your QuickBooks Online account, then go to the Apps tab at the left pane.
  2. Look for an application from the Find Apps column.

 

To learn more about creating and sending invoices, feel free to read the details from this link.

 

Aside from emailing invoices, you can also print them by following the instructions from this article: Print Invoices.

 

That should point you out in the right direction today. Keep me posted if you have any other questions. I'm a few clicks away to help. Have a good one!

Hi @Angelyn_T @erikslikkerveer 

 

Check out SnapDesk! https://snapdesk.app/

It's on the Quickbooks App Store, has great reviews, and I'm currently using it so I highly recommend! Not sure why the QuickBooks Team isn't knowledgeable about the apps in their own app store, they should be promoting this to their customers! It has helped me tremendously with my small business.

Hey there, @MPP315

 

Thanks for following the thread. I'm happy to provide the link to the integrated apps for Desktop. 

 

Check out the link I've included below to access the website that contains all of our integrated apps for QuickBooks Desktop. 

 

You can search directly for apps in the upper right corner of the screen. Or feel free to scroll through them and check them all out. 

 

 

Let me know if there's anything else that I can do for you. I'll be here every step of the way. You can reach out to the Community at any time. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hey there!

 

I've found a great way to send invoices over text. I use MessageDesk.com. This company integrates with QBO and makes it super easy to text invoices and even schedule them. 

 

I get paid faster using MessageDesk especially because clients usually check their texts more frequently than email.

 

Hope this helps!
