No, you cannot receive an overpayment through the payment link that is sent when a specific invoice is shared. The link in the email will only accept up to the outstanding balance of the invoice (or up to the Client's total outstanding balance, as per your settings). However, this is not true for payments made via the Secure Payment Linksee here.

In the case that another payment was made in error while a previous payment was still pending, the excess funds will be placed in the Client's Operating Account.
