Add EPC QR Codes to invoices

European Payments Council Quick Response Code, or EPC QR Code, are two-dimensional barcodes that customers can scan with their mobile banking applications to initiate a SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT), and pay their invoices instantly.

In addition to bringing ease of use and speed, it greatly reduces typing errors that would potentially make for payment issues.

Configuration #

Go to Accounting ‣ Configuration ‣ Settings and activate the SEPA QR Code feature.

Issue Invoices with EPC QR Codes #

EPC QR Codes are added automatically to your invoices, as long as you issue them to customers that are located in a country where this feature is available.

Go to Accounting ‣ Customers ‣ Invoices, and create a new invoice.

Before posting it, open the Other Info tab. CPA Books automatically fills out the Bank Account field with your IBAN.

Make sure that the account indicated is the one you want to use to receive your customer’s payment as CPA Books uses this field to generate the EPC QR Code.
