Partial Payments

Created on:
Updated on:

Partial Payments allow you to only require a minimum deposit to be paid at the time of registration. You can set a minimum deposit amount for your attendees to pay or set the minimum deposit to $0.00 and let them register for the event without paying at all, which is helpful if you have attendees who wish to pay by cash or check for some or all of their registration cost.

To enable Partial Payments, go to your Attendee Types, and select the attendee type.

Select Yes under Partial Payments, and enter in the minimum deposit.

If you add a minimum deposit, that deposit will need to be paid by card before your attendees will be able to complete the registration form. If you have attendees paying in all cash or check, set your minimum deposit $0.00.

Partial Payments are enabled per Attendee Type or Add On.

On the Event Page

Once you have Partial Payments enabled, your attendees will have options on the final payment page. They can pay the full amount, the minimum deposit (or choose pay later if your minimum deposit is set to 0.00), or a specific amount.

Regardless of which option the attendee chooses, they will receive a Confirmation email. If they still have a balance due, the confirmation email will include a link that will direct them back to the final registration page where they will be able to make additional payments.

Apply Payment

If your attendees need to pay by cash or check, you should set the minimum deposit amount to $0.00, so they can complete the registration without making a payment, and then add that payment on their registration itself.

Click Apply Payment on their registration.

By default, the payment breakdown is collapsed, but you can expand the names and Payments sections to view what has been selected and paid for.

Choose the type of payment you're adding, as well as the amount and any additional information.

Cash/Check Payments

Receipts can only be sent to attendees on the registration, so check the box to send the receipt to an attendee.

If the attendee doesn't have an email address, their name will not be listed.

You can also apply credit card payments from the New Payment box.

View All Payments

From the Payments tab, you can view all payments and refunds from any event.
