Recording Purchase Payments

This guidance advises on how to apply a payment to an existing purchase. You will first need to select the purchase you want pay off by clicking Purchases and then select your purchase form the list, or run a quick search for it in the search box.

The payment can all be arranged and processed in the Payment Details section. You will firstly need to put the date of the payment for bank purposes and then you come to the amount where you can choose to do a full payment or a part payment.

Full Payment

To apply a full payment you will need to ensure that the full amount is in the amount box. This should be there by default but it always worth checking. Now you will need to select the payment method from the drop down menu and then which bank account the money will be taken from. You can choose to put note in the box for your reference if you want. Finally, hit Add Payment.
