About Payment Methods

Collecting payments for one-off invoices is commonly done by sending an email to customers. The emails include a link to a payment page hosted by Stripe where customers can enter their payment details.

You can also choose to automatically charge a payment method on file. This means Stripe automatically charges the customer’s existing payment method. If the charge fails, Stripe automatically retries the payment.
