There are a few scenarios in which you will want to issue a credit note and this guide will outline the steps of how to accomplish that.

Example Reasons for Issuing a Credit Note

  1. A customer paid an invoice with dockage and utilities for 5 nights but had a bad experience. You want to give them credit for use in a future reservation.
  2. An invoice is partially or fully paid but you want to reduce the total balance.
  3. A customer paid for an item but you want to return that item and provide a refund. For this scenario, please refer to our guide on providing credit notes and issuing refunds: How To Issue a Credit Note and Provide a Refund (Not Same-Day Refunds)

  3. Press the Credit/Return button at the far bottom left.
  4. In the Credit/Return pop-up, check the Box or Boxes next to items you wish to refund. You can manually override the Quantity and Unit Price for each item. Press Credit/Return when done.
