The Parent Billing Platform allows you to easily accept split or partial payments against an invoice. For example, this allows your parents to easily split a bill or use multiple payment methods to complete a transaction. 

A payment won’t show as completed until the entire amount of the transaction has been processed; remaining balances will be shown when a user clicks into a partially paid transaction. Partial payments can only be applied to invoices. 

To get started with split and partial payments:

    1. Send an invoice to your customer as normal.
    2. When the parent goes to pay the invoice, they have the option to pay the balance in full or to enter in a partial amount. The parent will receive a receipt showing the partial amount paid. In the sales tab, the invoice will show as partially paid. You also have the option to enter in a payment method manually for the parent by visiting the sales tab, and entering in payment against the transaction.
    3. To pay the remaining balance, the parent can either revisit the invoice, and the new remaining balance will show for them to submit a payment; or you can manually key in a payment, use an existing saved payment method, or complete the transaction with a manual payment method, like cash, check or gift card.
    4. A final receipt will be sent to the parent based on their final payment, and the transaction will show as paid in full.
