Hi, I'm new here and have been using Wave for some time. I'm very happy with except that I would like to receive notifications when someone pays me. Is this possible to set up?

    Just download the app on your phone and sign in. It will send you a push notification when an invoice is viewed **(unless it was sent and opened as a PDF) as when an invoice is **PAID!

    @SJEMarketing Aside from @mahout's suggestion (which is a good one) .. you can also make sure that you have notification enabled on that specific app in your device settings.

    I have adjusted my settings but I still don't notifications when someone has paid. Does it need to be linkedin to my bank account for this to happen?

    @SJEMarketing I just sent you a DM so I can check the email you use in our system to see what might be preventing these notifications from getting to you. As long as you are getting paid via either Payments by Wave or Stripe integrated into Wave, you should be receiving payment emails.

    If your clients are paying you via the Wave integrated solutions then you should be getting email notification, I receive them from Stripe (if it used), BUT if clients are paying you via Direct Transfer then no chance unless the bank has a means of sending you notification to say that there is activity on your account, and you then have to manually update your Invoice status as Paid.

    Hey @DavidF, thanks for reaching out. Can you check if the correct email address is on your Wave account? The one that you originally set up the account with is the email that should be receiving updates from Wave. You can check this by selecting your business name in the top left of your account, close to the bottom of that dropdown will tell you the email you are signed in on. If you need to update that email you can select Manage your Profile from that dropdown > Emails & Connected accounts

    You may also need to double check your spam/junk boxes to ensure that emails are not getting lost in there. Please let me know if you need anything else :smile:

    Hey @DavidF, what email service provider do you use? If you haven't done so, I'd also recommend adding [email protected] as a trusted contact/domain. If you're okay with it, you could also send over a DM with the email you use for Wave and we can dig in further. Unfortunately there isn't much we will be able to see if it's being weeded out after it hits the email server, but we can check to see if it is bouncing back before that!
