To apply a payment, select the relevant item or items and click + Payment or Record Payment.

Invoices must be in Finalised state before payments can be applied.

The New Invoice Payment window lets you attribute specific amounts to each line. It will default to the full outstanding balance of each line, but you can amend this as appropriate.


The quantity helper shown below lets you select a quantity of items to be paid for, and calculates the correct amount for that quantity.

Select the desired Payment Type and enter any your Reference, plus any Remarks.

Payments may also be backdated if required.
