Booking Invoice Options OverviewBack to top
Booking Invoice options vary, from the ability to customize print and payment preferences to the option to include additional item/product details in the Booking Invoice, such as SKUs and location.
Adding pay now buttonsBack to top
With the Pay Now Link option, you can add a button to the Booking Invoice, enabling your Customers to click and pay any remaining balance on their Booking Invoice. You can find the button under the Balance Due amount.
The Pay Now button does not display in the Staff or Customer Booking Invoice PDFs. Instead, the button displays when an invoice is embedded in an email to a Staff or Customer recipient.
Learn more about notifications and email variables here:
The Pay Now Link is different from the payment link option in notification emails. The latter is a link embedded in an email that customers can click to pay any remaining balance.

Adding PDF linksBack to top
The PDF Link option adds a button that allows the Customer to create a PDF document of the Booking Invoice for printing purposes.
Printing in colourBack to top
By default, the Booking Invoice is converted to grayscale for printing. Selecting the Print in Color option prints the Booking Invoice in colour instead. The logo remains in grayscale if you have chosen to include it.
Showing SKUsBack to top
This option adds the item/product SKU directly beneath the Booking Invoice title.
Showing item locationsBack to top
The Show Item Location option displays locations for items with locations configured (Inventory > Items > Media).
This option is great for accommodation items or rental pickup locations.
Products do not include a location option to display on invoices.
Adding links to create another bookingBack to top
Check the Link to Create Another Booking option to add a link to the Booking Invoice to create another booking upon completing the current booking.
Once the Customer has completed their booking through the online booking portal, a copy of the Booking Invoice displays.
The link is visible in the sidebar on the right.
Enabling Staff ticket printingBack to top
If you Enable Staff Ticket Printing, a link is added to the Staff-side Booking Invoice visible to your Staff Members. This link enables your Staff to print a ticket to give to the Customer.
These tickets are great for tour operators with drop-in Customers who need a ticket to show the tour guide upon arrival at the meeting location.
If your QR Code integration is activated, each ticket has one embedded. A Staff Member can scan the QR Code to pull up the related Booking Invoice and optionally check the Guest in automatically.
