How to record partial payments for a due offline invoice?



Chargebee allows you to collect partial payments for a due invoice. Here’s how you can do this:


For Online Payments (processed through Chargbee).

Customers who have a payment method (card, ACH, direct debit) on file, but the auto collection is set to OFF Chargebee will attempt a payment 


You can use the Collect Now button on the ‘Actions’ panel of the invoice details page. Here you can enter either the full or a partial amount to collect for the due invoice.





  1. For Offline Payments (Not-processed through Chargbee)

If you are collecting payments external to Chargebee, you can use the Record Payment option to record the full or a partial payment for the due invoice.






This ai also possible if you are using our APIs.
