Managing your Customers

Like any business management system, the secret is to adopt good customer management practices. Paysley allows you to import your existing customer database or add new customer records directly in Paysley.


In your My Customers section, you will find a list of all your customers. From the list, you can conveniently:

  • Click on the customer's name to open the customer's profile
  • Click on the customer's phone number to instantly text them or send a text payment request
  • Click on the customer's email to immediately send them an email or payment request
  • Select the Actions icon (3 dots) to open other available options


When you open a customer's profile, you can:

  • Edit or update your customer's detail.
  • View the customer's invoice & payment request history
  • View the customer's payments made history
  • Generate a statement
  • Create and send a new invoice to the customer

How to add a New Customer

Step 1:  Go to your My Customers section by clicking the My Customers manage button on the dashboard. Alternatively select My Customers on the left navigation bar.

Step 2:  Click the + New Customer button.

Step 3:  Fill in the customer's info and click Save. You can add additional fields by clicking + Extra Information.

How to Import Customers

Paysley supports CSV and XLS file format imports. For your convenience we already created template files you can download to setup for import.
