There may be times that you will want to bill a client in multiple installments. That's why we made it easy to create partial payments in Artwork Archive.
Recording Manual Partial Payments or Payment Installments
You can manually enter a payment installment at any time by clicking "Add Payment" at the bottom of the invoice.
Once you have added a payment, it will be recorded in the Payment History and the remaining balance will be updated.
Accepting Partial Payments on PayPal
In order to accept partial payments toward the total balance of your invoice on PayPal, you will need to turn on "Allow Partial Payments" at the top of your invoice.
Communicating Partial Payments to your Clients
After you have turned on partial payments on your invoice, you will want to communicate to your client how much they can expect to pay in each installment. A good place to do this is in the Notes section on the invoice.
The notes will show up on the bottom of the invoice and can instruct the buyer about how to proceed—as well as add a personal touch or thank you note.
They can then click "make a partial payment" on the invoice.
From there, they can enter the amount of their payment installment and click next.
They will then get an option to pay by PayPal or Credit Card.
PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Processing is a Premium Feature and not available on Artist Apprentice or Collector Starter accounts. You can upgrade your account at any time by going to "Account" in the upper right-hand corner of your screen—or by clicking here.
