How do I Record a Partial Payment for an Invoice?

Updated on August 26, 2020 06:01AM by Admin

Sometimes a customer may make only a partial payment against an invoice you have sent. You can record this payment in two ways.

  1. Manually record the payments against the invoice
  2. When a customer pays the partial amount for their invoice using an online gateway.
To indicate that you have received payment against an invoice, you must record the payment in that particular invoice and mark it as paid. If you receive partial payment from a customer, record payment partially. Each payment will be recorded as a separate receivable in Receivables App against that invoice. 

Steps to record a Partial Payment

  • Log in and access the Invoices App from your universal navigation menu.
  • Create a New Invoice or select an existing invoice.
  • Click on "Record Payment" next to Bulk Actions.


  • In which, select payment method (for instance: here "Zipmark" payment methods are used) which is a mandatory field.
  • Fill the partial amount paid or to be paid and other required details.
  • Click on the “Save” button.
