Importing payments on invoices is similar to importing other transactions except that the imported payments are automatically posted. You can import payments/receipts on invoices by choosing File>Import>Payments on Invoice, or if you have the information on the clipboard, you can hold down the option key (Mac), or the shift key (Windows) and choose Edit>Paste Records.
