How do I accept Partial Payments?

Partial payments allow your Clients to pay their Invoices online in multiple payments at the amount of their choosing. This feature is enabled by default, but you can turn it off in your account with these steps:

    1. Click on Settings
    2. Click on the Accept Credit Cards sub-tab
    3. Under Credit Card Settings where Partial Payments is, uncheck the box next to Allow clients to pay a portion of your invoice at a time
      Partial payments enabled.
    4. The changes will apply immediately.


Then when your Clients go to pay an Invoice, they can clear out the pre-populated amount and enter in the amount of their choosing:

Paying an invoice where the amount field can be changed.

Note: You can always enter payments manually in partial payments without this feature. This feature is specific to online partial payments only.
