AutoPay is an easy way to bill your clients and collect credit card payments without having to manually do so after each appointment.

This automation can be enabled on a practice-wide level and customized at the client level, meaning you can enable AutoPay for specific clients based on their personal preference.

Once a client is enrolled in AutoPay, the default card stored in their file will be charged their full invoiced amount overnight between the hours of 12 AM and 2 AM in your local timezone.

Important: An Online Payments account is required to use AutoPay. For a walkthrough on setting this up, see Getting started with Online Payments.


Billing documents

There are three types of client-facing billing documents available in SimplePractice: invoices, statements, and superbills.

In this video, we’ll review invoices, statements, and superbills.

Note: Billing documents can be printed, downloaded as a PDF, emailed to a client, or deleted. To choose from these options, select More at the top of the billing document.
