Create a Quick charge for a customer from your UI


You can collect a one-time payment from a customer or a subscription using the Add Quick Charge option as well as  Add One-Time Charge and Quick Charge. 


One-time Charges

 This option can be quite useful, especially when you come across scenarios where you have to collect payments from customers for goods or services that are not normally included as a part of their subscription model. It can also be used when you want to collect payment for a product or service that is not modeled into your system like a non-recurring addon.

A one-time charge can be applied to a customer or a subscription via the Chargebee UI or via API.
