The link on the customer within Squeegee is unique so that once you have sent it out and the customer signs up, you don't have to do anything at all.
The process takes a few days for customers to become active (around 3-5 working days) and as soon as they are active, you can start making charges.
To invite a customer, go to the customer edit menu (three dots to the top right of the customer) and press direct debit
Then choose how to send the link, either email, SMS or copy the link to send a different way and choose whether to have the customer set to make a direct debit charge automatically front this screen that will come into effect once they are active (you can always go into the customer and edit this afterwards)
