Allowing your clients to pay their invoices online is a pretty neat feature which can take away a lot of the hassle associated with chasing up money from clients.
You simply send them the link to the invoice, they pay using their credit card and you get the money in your account within 2 business days.
We use Stripe as our online credit card payment processor – https://stripe.com/au

Processing payments online is surrounded by complex legal, security, fraud and compliance issues which require the need for a third-party payment provider. The payment provider is fully compliant and up to date with all of these issues.
We chose Stripe because their registration process is by far the easiest, they have excellent features, outstanding support and they are trusted by the millions of users and the worlds largest organisations. Stripe is certified to the highest standard of security in the payments industry, PCI Level 1.
