Invoice Details Visible Inside HubSpot

We know it's vital for your Support Teams to have information at their fingertips in order to quickly service your customers. Chargify's HubSpot integration lets you view subscription changes, payment and invoice history, usage and next billing dates, all within the Contact and Deal Record views. 

Adding to our native HubSpot integration, we are excited to announce an enhancement to viewing Invoice Details! Once the subscription is generated, the integration will provide a PCI compliant invoice link to collect payment from your contacts in addition to visibility for your customer-facing teams. 

The invoice details include: 

  • Invoice ID 
  • Status 
  • Payment Collection Method
  • Invoice Due Amount
  • Invoice Paid Date
  • Credits Used

These values will stay up-to-date in HubSpot's CRM extension and can help you streamline your revenue operations, support, and more.

New Filter Options via API for Invoicing

Last month we released a new endpoint to send invoices via API to mimic the behavior of the "Send Invoice" button within the UI. This endpoint enables you to programmatically deliver ad-hoc invoices as well as the re-send of auto-generated invoices, thus giving you control of when to send out an invoice. 

As we continue adding new API endpoints, we are excited to announce new filter options on exposed event types on an invoice. You can now filter for multiple event types on an invoice (e.g. issue_invoice, apply_credit_note, refund_invoice) using a comma separated list. Previously, you were able to filter by only 1 invoice event.
