How to Manage Payments From Your Email Client?

How to Manage Payments From Your Email Client?

by Luis

Yes, you read that right. You can view, charge, refund, and cancel customer's payments from your email!

If you process online payments, whether it is for an e-commerce, SaaS, or something else, you will inevitably need to manage billing requests. Anything from charging customers, adding coupons, refunding orders, sending invoices, etc.

And what do customers use most when they want to communicate with a company? Email. So why has there been a disconnection between payment processors and customer service tools? It beats me. But, here's where Missive enters the game and bridges the gap with the help of ChargeDesk.

ChargeDesk is a billing toolkit that connects to Missive as an integration. It's the perfect way to match billing and customer support.

With the ChargeDesk integration, you can:

  • See a customer's payments next to their support tickets

  • Create new charges (either by invoicing the customer or charging a card on file)

  • Manage coupons
  • Send payment reminders
  • Edit customer details, including adding tax numbers
  • Securely update a customer's credit card on file
