For all other payment methods (cash check, money transfer, etc..) SmartCoparent lets you record the Full or Partial Payments against support Payment Requests.

Steps to Record a Partial Payment for a Support Payment Request:

  • Go to Request Money > Manage Requests
    • On the ‘Manage Requests’ screen, click on the Request Number of the Support Payment Request you would like to record as Partially Paid. This will open the detailed Payment Request page.


    • Click on the Update / Send Reminder button to view all the payments made against this Payment Request.




    • If you do not wish to send a Payment Request, but want to record the  partial, payment for your own records, simply select ‘Mark as Sent (Offline)’.
    • Under the Record new payment section, you can enter the payment details such as Payment Date, Amount and Payment Method to record a partial payment against the Payment Request.
    • After entering these details just click the ‘Record Payment’ button to record the partial payment.
