    There are aMember invoice links that look like this: https://mysite.com/amember/pay/212S3-8fj39fj4sl. I can see them for users who have pending invoices, but I'd like to know how I can generate these links myself.

    So for instance I have a user with username MemberY and I'd like him to purchase product #2. Is there a simple way I can generate an invoice link without the user doing anything?

    This would be very useful, I'd like to use the links similarly to PayPal's new https://www.paypal.me/accountnamehere/60 links that take you directly to an invoice.

    Hello,

    You can add new pending invoice within admin interface in user account:
    aMember CP -> Users -> Browse Users -> (edit) -> Invoice/Access

    Thank you for the answer. Is there a way to automate generating them though? Either via a set format for the link like PayPal does, or an API that can be used to quickly generate an invoice?

    I am afraid there is not such feature.

    I also recommend to check Quick Payment Link plugin
    https://www.amember.com/amember/product/payment-link

    This plugin allow you to generate payment link for specific user and incorporate either products or flat amount to it eg.:
    http://example.com/amember/p?l=username&a=30 USD&d=Setup Charge&ps=twocheckout&h=G1TR

    You can set expiration date for link if necessary.

    This link is protected by security hash and user can not alter its settings on his own.

    Plugin allow you to send generated link to user by email with single click.

    You can generate such link either from
    aMember CP -> Users -> Payment Link
    or from particular user account
    aMember CP -> Users -> Browse Users -> (edit) -> Payment Link

    Any chance you could fix the link? When I click on it I get:
    An Error has occurred Product #[104] not found (category code [])

    and I wasn't able to find the plugin via search either.

    I am, but it's still not working. Does the account's access to plugins expire?
