Online Payments and Invoicing lets you generate professional invoices, email them to clients, and receive payment through credit cards or ACH, all without leaving B12.

Verifying your business

Note: You will only have to verify your business once.

1. Log in to the B12 Editor and click Invoicing.

2. Click Add banking details to be able to accept payments.

Note: If you do not see this button, please follow these instructions to edit your business address and include the US as your Country.

Next, through our payment partner, Stripe, you will be prompted to verify your identifying information and bank account. Your business address must be a valid physical address in the United States from which you conduct business and cannot be a P.O. Box.
