New: Send Invoices with discounts

Paystack merchants can now include flat amount and percentage discounts when preparing professional invoices

Include discounts in invoices

A popular feature request we receive is the ability to include discounts in invoices. Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now do just that - send invoices, and include discounts either as a percentage of the total bill, or as a flat fee.

Here’s how to include discounts in your invoice:

  • Log into your Paystack Dashboard, and click on Invoices
  • Next, click on “Request a Payment” [1], and select the “Professional Invoice” option (NOTE: You can only add a discount to a professional invoice) 
  • Next, type in the customer’s email address [2], and click on “Next: Edit Details” [3] to proceed

  • Review the information you’ve provided, and click on “Send Now” [8] to send out your invoice!
