Sharing Invoices Easily

Along with events and documents, invoices are easily be shared with clients through their unique portal in one of two ways.
1. When creating a matter, you are directed to a page where you may choose billing method, statute of limitations, user access, etc. Now, you will also see the option to add portal users that you may automatically share invoices with.

Simply add the portal user’s name in the “who can receive invoices from this matter” field and press OK. When you go back into the Edit Matter page at a later time, each portal user you have listed will show whether they are successfully registered for the portal or if their invitation is pending.
2. Another way to share an invoice is through the matter documents section. Once an invoice has been run, it will automatically be stored in that matter’s documents section. From there, you can share the invoice with the portal.

Using LawPay to Receive Invoice Payments

Once an invoice has been shared, the client is now free to pay directly through their portal using our seamless LawPay integration. Clients can download and view invoices locally on their computer. The current balance owed is automatically updated.

From the right side of their portal, clients can click on the Pay Now button under their balance amount. This will direct them to enter their billing address and credit card information with the amount they would like to pay at that time. This allows the client to pay portions at a time as well.

Once the client pays any amount towards the invoice, the balance will appear in both the invoice description and in the Balance Due box.
Within Rocket Matter, all payments will be automatically reflected on the matter ledger as “paid from portal.” No need for any extra steps here! View the matter ledger to note any payments made by date and description.
