Enable Partial Payments

You can configure the Standard Payment Links to receive partial payments from your customer for a particular order.

Use Case🔗

The Partial Payment feature comes in handy while dealing with large transactions, where the customer finds paying the total amount in parts more convenient than paying the entire amount upfront.

Handy Tips
This feature is not available for UPI Payment Links.

For example, a tourism company, Acme Corp. offers expensive travel packages. As per the company's payment terms, a fixed booking amount should be collected from the customer before making any tour reservations. With the Partial Payments feature, Acme Corp. issues a Payment Link using which the customer pays the booking amount for an order. The customer can make multiple payments for the remaining balance amount for the same order using the same Payment Link.

Given below is a diagram of how partial payments work for Payment Links.

partial payment workflow

Just like any other payment, each partial payment would have a unique payment_id, but will be tied to the same order_id, thereby allowing customers to easily make multiple payments for the same order using the same Payment Link.

This makes it easier to track the status of a particular order.

How it Works🔗

  1. You create a Payment Link of ₹20,000.
  2. The customer chooses to pay an amount of ₹10,000 out of the due amount mentioned in the Payment Link.
  3. Since the customer pays less than the due amount, the Payment Link would show partially_paid status until the amount due is zero or until the link gets expired or canceled.
  4. After the full amount has been paid, the status of the Payment Link changes to paid. Know about the Payment Links States.
