Whether an invoice is automatically being paid depends on your chosen payment method and the individual payment settings on the customer.

Most often subscriptions are billed to an online payment method (i.e. a credit card) which requires you to set up one of our integrated Payment gateways. There is also the option to choose a manual payment method, where you have to manually mark the invoices as paid. By default a customer without a payment method in Upodi is handled as manual invoice.

Upodi also supports offline payment methods like GIRO, FI, EAN etc. or asynchronous payment methods like SEPA, iDEAL, PBS or LeverandørService.

"Upodi Test" Credit Card Gateway

By default your tenant uses a payment provider called "Upodi Test", which is meant for testing purposes. The credit card gateway will always show 'Success' on transactions made by card, but will not charge any money.

The following card information can be used with the Upodi Test gateway to simulate different transaction outcomes:
