Invoice Auto Login Feature from email Templates

Ashwani shared this idea 2 years ago
Under Consideration

We need an AUTO Login Link feature in Invoice Email templates and PDF Invoices.

There is a serverping addon available

https://marketplace.whmcs.com/product/586

But this should be included in Whmcs itself as now Customers just want an option to QUICK PAY without Login

My opinion... Yikes please no! If someone else gets access to that email (by any method), then they have access to the clients logged in account. Additionally, this possibly leaves a door open for a client to argue "wasn't me" when a potential issue occurs. My opinion, just log in, it's not hard to log in ;) Case in point... Banks don't do this, as well as secure payment gateways don't do this. If WHMCS must do this, please be sure to make the feature optional, so that we can disable it.

Well - someone should be able to pay invoices and add new credit card information with that link, but not do anything else in the account.

So if someone else gets a hold of the link the worst they should be able to do is pay a bill :)

Could this be a login *for that payment only* ? I understand the security issue, but you'd be sorry to see how many people are annoyed and frustrated by a forgotten password, that they themselves were not able to remember or store of course, but then do not log in, forget to pay, queue to suspended accounts threats etc. Anything helping clients pay is worth considering :-)

People annoyed because they forgot their passwords? I hardly think this is an issue (when did one of us last forget the password to our online banking for example)? - WHMCS has an excellent "forgot password" system.

Again, adding all the extra code, functions, etc. to facilitate something like this, adds the potential for exploits.

Keep it simple, and don't add this feature in the core (rather it could be an optionally installed module). Case in point, we've used WHMCS for several years, and never once (not ever) had a client not pay because of such issues.

For sure, clients have reset their passwords, but there has never been any issue, when clicking the "pay now" button in an invoice. To be fair, the majority have their credit cards, etc. set up for automatic payments within their WHMCS accounts.

Thus, it seems prudent not to include this in the core, rather as an add-on module for those who must use it.

I agree it should be a 3rd Partly module
