Modified on: Tue, 13 Sep, 2022 at 11:39 AM


Payments are used to pay for goods or services. They can be made by credit card, debit card, bank transfer, cheque, cash, or any other method of payment. Invoices are used to record the amount that has been paid for a product or service. The invoice is usually sent with the payment so that it can be tracked as part of the accounting process.

In this article we will go over some common or popular use cases for using payments and invoices:

Covered in this article:

  • Charging a card while on the phone with a customer without sending an invoice
  • Using invoices for recording manual payments without Stripe Connect
