One option in the Client Portal Settings is to allow clients to make Prepayments. Prepayments are a type of Payment that can be made separate from any existing Invoice. When a client makes a Prepayment, it will be marked as such on the Account where you can select the Services you want the Prepayment to apply to when Invoices are eventually generated.
To make a Prepayment in the Client Portal, the client can use the following steps:
- From the "Home" tab, click the blue Make a Prepayment link in the account balance panel:
- By default, the credit card on file will be selected for use. Click Use Different Credit/Debit Card to enter a different card:
- Enter the amount of the Prepayment in the Amount to Prepay field.
- Click the green Prepay button.
A message will display to confirm the transaction. After the Prepayment is made, the client will be able to see it immediately in their list of transactions on the "Billing" tab.
