The two buttons marked on the top left corner of your invoice are the
Appearance options button (to change template, content, items on the invoice) and the Permalink for your client -in case you need to copy-paste the link of your invoice to a different platform.
On your right side, you will find the options you can use to manage your invoice. Edit, Pdf, Print, email, attachments and ...(More) buttons.

Please note, that, online payment gateways will be available once you set them up in Elorus.
Click the "Edit" button of the box below to add a tracking category on the invoice.
