How to apply payments on an invoice?
The Apply payments option shows up only if there is any excess amount available for the customer. When this operation is selected, the list of available Excess Payments will be shown and the preferred credit can be applied to the invoice.
Excess payments are the payments that are collected in additional or advanced to the payments required, by using Record Payment or Remove Payment (that is linked to the invoice).
Apply Excess Payments
Using the Apply Payments option, you can apply excess payments manually on invoices.
The Apply Payments option is only available when:
