Partial online payments using FreshBooks

FreshBooks now supports partial online payments! Your Clients can now pay part of the Invoice amount when entering in their credit card information. This feature is not enabled by default, but can be turned on in your Settings.

To turn on partial online payments:

  1. Log into your account and head over to Settings in the top right
  2. Click on Accept Credit Cards here and then head to the Credit Card Settings section of the page on the right
  3. Click the checkbox under Partial Payments (allow Clients to pay a portion of your Invoice at a time).


Now, when your Clients go to pay your Invoice online they’ll see a new field for Payment amount. It will default to the total remaining balance of the Invoice, but your Client can now edit it down to whatever payment they want to make.


Once the feature is turned on it will be enabled for all of the Invoices that you have online payments turned on for.
