Advance Payments with AEM
If you want to record a payment on a blank invoice for a customer (a deposit on an invoice), a line item must be entered on the invoice. Using a Service-Layout Sale, you will need indicate an account. For an Item-Layout Sale, you will need to indicate an item. No dollar amounts or quantities are required.
When you enter the sale or order, fill in the Paid Today field, and sync it back to AccountEdge Desktop. The (credit) sale or order will show in the Sales Register as a credit under the Returns & Credits tab.
