API: Create Invoice with existing Stock Items

Question asked by Lisa Porter 4 months ago

Hello,

I am attempting to create an invoice with line items that are existing Stock Items.

I want to be able to say something like 1 x StockItemId as a line item and it would pull the pricing automatically. This is the way it works in the web front end. It's possible to select one of the stock items from a drop-down list.

Looking at the documentation https://www.clearbooks.co.uk/support/api/docs/soap/createinvoice/ it seems that I have to specify the complete item details, like description, price etc... which i don't want to do..

How can i create an invoice with an existing stock item please?

Hi Lisa,

  1. I do not believe we have the option to set Stripe as a payment option via the API.
  2. This is not possible.
  3. This can be achieved via our auto sender under Contacts > Emails > Email settings without the use of the API.

All the best,

Mohamed.

Hi Lisa,

I am afraid that the API does not support the use of the stock feature. My apologies.

All the best,

Thanks for the reply. That does cause a number of problems with out planned integration :(

I am wondering the API enables me to complete some of the other requirements?

  1. I need to be able to add "Stripe" as a payment option to the invoice when creating it.
  2. Set the invoice email template
  3. Send the invoice by email

are these possible please?
