Send Invoice Reminder

Merchants can send customers a reminder to pay an invoice.

  1. Call the remind method. Include the invoice ID in the URI of the request. By default, the reminder includes a generic subject and note and sends a copy of the email to the merchant.
  2. To customize the invoice details, include a notification object in the JSON request body. Here you can set the subject line and write a note to the customer.
  3. Set send_to_invoicer to true to send a copy of the email to the merchant.
  4. Set the additional_recipients array to send a CC:email to anyone the merchant needs to notify.

This sample request sends an invoice reminder:

curl -v -X POST \
  https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v2/invoicing/invoices/INV2-Z56S-5LLA-Q52L-CPZ5/remind \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer Access-Token" \
  -d '{
  "subject": "Past due",
  "note": "Please submit a payment at your earliest convenience.",
  "send_to_invoicer": true,
  "additional_recipients": ["recipient@example.com"]
}'

A successful request returns the HTTP 202 Accepted status code with no JSON response body.
