We sent an invoice to a customer. We have the Payment option available on the invoice and in the email that accompanies it. We have the payment option set in our accounts.
When the customer went to pay, they received an error message (but no explanation as to why it would not work!)
This is our first attempt at using the Payment option (instead of Square). We have another invoice out to another customer and have no received a payment from them either so assume something is amiss with the setup.

This system is built to automatically integrate with your books, helping you unlock the full potential of the advanced tracking for your accounts receivable.

Thanks for your speedy response. I was also able to speak with Anie and she offered a couple of solutions, and stayed with me until I input the bank account info a second time. This effectively took the previously set up payment Bank info out of the picture. I then contacted out customer, who proceeded to attempt to pay... and presto... this time it worked!
I really appreciate the great support I have been receiving at QBO. Kudos, folks!
