You may have noticed a "Paused" section in your invoices lists in the billing tab. Here you can see all of your paused invoices in one place. But what does a "Paused" Invoice mean??
The paused status indicates that an invoice will stop sending reminder emails to customers to pay and/or stop automatically attempting to charge the default payment source on file. Resuming the invoice will cause the invoice to start reminding customers again and will start attempting collection of the amount due. Only Invoices that are Unpaid can be paused/unpaused and this status doesn't affect the invoice's ability to be charged or paid by the customer, it just doesn't happen automatically.
An invoice can reach this state for a variety of reasons:
The system will automatically mark all invoices as paused if the subscription has been paused.
Subscriptions can be paused manually by managers by going to the membership tab in the team profile.
Stripe may also automatically be pausing your memberships after too many failed attempts at payment collection. If you think this is happening to you, please read how to stop this from happening here.
Managers can manually pause an invoice individually through the invoice actions in the invoice detail page. For example: Maybe you want to stop trying to collect the money and remove it from the unpaid list but not close the invoice entirely?
