The Pay Link and Pay Button variable options are only visible if you have connected an integrated payment provider (Square or Stripe) to your WriteUpp account.

To add a Pay Link or Pay Button that can be used with an integrated payment provider to your invoice footer:

Go to Settings -> Invoice and chose Layout

Scroll down to the Invoice Footer section and click in the editor where you want to insert the link or button

Click on the VAR option in the editor toolbar and scroll down until you find Pay Link and Pay Button and click on the one that you want to add to your footer

You can use one or both of the options in your invoice footer

If you select Pay Link, it will insert the ##PAY_INVOICE_LINK## variable into your invoice footer, which will appear as a link on your invoice with the text Pay Invoice

If you select Pay Button, it will insert the ##PAY_INVOICE_BUTTON## variable into your invoice footer, which this will appear as a blue button on your invoice with the text Pay Invoice.

Below are examples of the Pay Link and Pay Button in the invoice footer of a saved invoice:

The Pay Link variable can also be inserted into your invoice email templates, but cannot be used elsewhere in WriteUpp. If you're using the pay link in an invoice email, please don't copy and paste it from another invoice email, or the invoice itself. Using the Pay Link option from the VAR dropdown ensures that the correct invoice is linked once the email is sent.

When your client clicks on the pay invoice link or button, they will be taken to the online portal where they can make payment.

If you add either of these to your invoice footer or invoice email template and then disconnect your payment provider from WriteUpp, you will also need to remove the variables from the footer and template.
