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 Manage. 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:
- In Clio, go to the Clio Payments page from the left hand menu
- Click New credit card payment in the top-right corner of the screen
- Click Copy payment link for the relevant account (for example, your operating account)
You can now paste the link wherever you want. Anyone with the link will be able to pay you (via a Clio Payment) using the secure payment page.
Viewing Payments made using the Secure Payment Page
You can view all of your pending, completed, and failed Clio Payments on the Clio Payments page.
Linking a Payment to a Client
Once the payment is processed, you must link the transaction to a client. You can then use the funds to fill a client's trust account or pay their outstanding bills.
You will receive an email notifying you of the payment:
