What is Clio's Secure Payment Link?

Clio customers can now send a secure payment link to their clients that will allow them to pay off an invoice or make a deposit into trust, from anywhere, at any time. A secure payment links sends clients to a firm-branded payments page—that Clio customers can opt to display on their website—where clients can make a secure credit card payment via Clio Payments.


Sharing the Secure Payment Page with your Clients

The secure payment page allows your clients to easily transfer money via Clio Payment to any of your accounts in Clio. You can link your clients to this page however you want. For example, you can include the link on your website, your email signature, or your invoices.

To access the link to your secure payment page:

  1. In Clio, go to the Clio Payments pageScreen_Shot_2018-09-25_at_6.30.41_PM.png

  3. Click Copy link for the relevant account (for example, your operating account)Screen_Shot_2018-09-25_at_6.31.50_PM.png
