We have now made auto-payments available using your credit card in Freshbooks. We don't store the data or your details, this is handled by a 3rd party payment processor called Stripe who's service is integrated into Freshbooks, they are very similar to PayPal and they process billions of dollars globally every year and just like PayPal we trust them with this facility. If you want to have your details removed from Stripe then just email us and we will remove you from their system, easy peasy.
How to setup auto-payments with your credit card:
Click on the link in your invoice email to view your invoice online.
Once your invoice is opened online, click the “Pay Online” button
When prompted with the payment method choose Credit Card (PayPal already has autopayments features built in)
After you type in your credit card details, just above the “Pay Now” button you will have a checkbox labeled Save card and automate future payments
This will allow your credit card details to be saved with Stripe to be used and processed for any future payments. We do not keep any of your credit card details and these are only securely stored by Stripe and details about their security protocol are found here.
