Payment types are used to identify clients that are invoiced on different billing cycles.



If you have a mixture of clients that are billed on different billing cycles (ie. weekly, monthly, "as and when required", "in advance of service", "at the end of service" etc.) you can use payment types to identify these different types of clients / billing cycles.


Identifying clients on different billing cycles becomes important when managing bulk scheduling and bulk invoicing processes.

One of my regular clients has a Payment Type of Monthly Invoiced but i want to change one of their invoices to have a different payment type. How do I do this? >

If you have a client that normally pays for their services at the end of the month, but then orders some boarding services for the summer, you might want to invoice those services in advance of service rather than at the end of service. One option to acheive this is to change the payment type for that one service order which will subsequently change the calculation of due date.
