Invoice documents where partial payments (down payment, advance payment, partial payment, payment on account or payment on account) are called partial invoices.
With the partial invoice module, individual partial invoices can be created based on an order. These can be conveniently created from the order and transferred to a final invoice at the end of the process. The specifics of a partial invoice are shown in a table on the invoice below the item table.
This module is relevant when partial payments are to be settled.
Under Master data → Article → +NEW a new article is to be created, which is then to appear in the partial invoices as an item. The article name can be e.g. "Partial billing fee" or similar.
Under Sales → Sales Order → +NEW an order is to be created, on which the partial invoices should be created and then released. In the "Partial Invoice" tab an overview of all partial invoices for the order appears.
From the order, the "Generate partial invoice" button can be used to select how the first partial invoice should look like.
Name for partial payment invoice → Freely selectable and appears on the invoice document

Item for partial payment → Select the item for partial payment. This appears as an item in the partial invoice
Item name → The name of the item as it should appear on the partial invoice
Item description → The item description of the item, as it should appear on the partial invoice

At the bottom of each partial invoice issued, all partial payments made up to that point, including the current ones, are listed. payments made up to that point, including the current ones, in order to provide the customer who receives it a good overview for the customer who receives it.
