Common Problems with Invoice Ninja on Zapier

I can't generate an API token#

Ninja Forms only enables API tokens for users on their Pro plan, so if you are not on the Pro plan or on a new user trial that has Pro features, you won't be able to connect that account to Zapier.

Create Invoice action is ignoring the value in the "Paid" field#

If you want the invoice to be marked as paid (by including the dollar amount of the payment in the paid field), you'll also need to make sure that the Auto-Bill field is set to "No." If you have Auto-Bill set to yes, the payment on the invoice will be ignored.

Can I connect to my self-hosted installation?#

Yes!

I want to create quotes, but there is no Create Quote action#

Quotes are considered invoices on the InvoiceNinja side, so you can do this using the Create Invoice action and setting the "Is Quote" field to yes.
