Adding A Manual Payment To An Invoice (Cash, Check, Or Other Payment Outside Of TTP)
If you are not connected with one of the credit card processors in Time To Pet, you will probably be marking invoices as paid manually outside of Time To Pet.
When clients make a manual payment (usually cash or check, but this can be any payment received outside of Time To Pet), you can add that payment to the invoice in the "Edit Invoice" screen by selecting the "Add Payment" button:
After clicking "Add Payment," you can add the payment amount for the client, the date that they paid, and a description of the payment if needed. For example, a check number or "paid by cash":
If the client has an open payment, you will be prompted to apply this amount to their invoice first. If you don't want to apply the open payment at this time you can skip this step and move on to the New Payment screen. You can read more about open payments in Time To Pet here: Understanding Open Payments And Credits In Time To Pet.
After the invoice has been paid in full, it will be marked as "Paid." If the client has only paid part of the invoice, it will be marked as "Partially Paid."
As a reminder, if you are connected to a payment processor in Time To Pet, whenever a client makes a payment via Credit Card or ACH/e-check, Time To Pet will mark the invoice as "Paid" automatically.
To mark multiple invoices as paid manually all at once, take a look at our Bulk Invoicing article.
