In the following, we created an example bill, let us charge both a credit card, cash and then a third time by check.
Partial Payment: Credit Card
Click the big "Pay" button to charge a credit card.
Let us select client's VISA. The payment amount was set to $5 (versus a total of $406.68). We've also included a tip of 20% as per client's "instruction".
Resulting changes on the bill include a reduced total owing of $401.68 = $406.68 [Starting Total] - $5 [Partial Payment From VISA]. Notice that the gratuity for this partial amount doesn't contribute to the reduction of the total owing amount.
Partial Payment: Cash
In addition to the $5 payment made by credit card above, in this example, customer has decided to pay you $350 in physical cash.
Click Action > Mark as paid:
Next, set your payment and gratuity amount (if any):
Resulting changes on the bill include a reduced total owing of $51.68 = $401.68 [Amount Owing] - $350 [Partial Payment by Cash]. Notice that the gratuity for this partial amount doesn't contribute to the reduction of the total owing amount.
- The cash partial payment + gratuity
- The credit card partial payment + gratuity
- The total gratuity received from the credit card partial payment
- The total gratuity received from the cash partial payment
- Gratuity is divided into parts, to payout to staff that ran the respective jobs paid for in this bill. The amount divided per worker is based on their individual contribution to the total owing in the bill. The tips report provides an aggregate report that includes these details. With Easy Busy Pets, you also get the summary below the invoice.
Partial Payment: Cheque
The remainder will be paid by cheque, resulting in $0 owing. Use the same steps as before to Action > Mark as paid. Often, in the case of cheques, the manager will also write a note into the bill about the cheque details (ex. date, and banking details printed on the cheque).
A paid invoice is one where there is no more room to make any additional partial payments. In other words, the amount owing is zero:
The above bill offers options to refund each partial payment.
