Installments / Partial Payments Magento Extension Now Available

What Is The Installments/Partial Payments Module?

This module allows you to increase your sales by not forcing your customer to pay for all of the order upfront. This is very common for rental / hire stores especially. The customer can pay for part of the order, then later comeback to the order and pay for the rest. All the information is recorded in the admin for how many payments have been made, and how many remain.  We have updated installments / partial payments module so that it can now work not just from the customer side, but also from the admin side in the admin create order page. The admin can choose to have the order use installments.
  • Admin can set how many installments a customer can make for an order
  • Customer can make payments from the customer side
  • Admin can submit payments from the admin side for each installment
  • Separate invoice is generated for each installment payment made
  • Installments report page in the admin showing installment payments made – can be exported to CSV
  • Customer can still choose to pay for the whole order at once if they want
  • On admin order page, a new installments tab showing all the installments, the amounts, and if they are paid or not

Responsive (Mobile Friendly) Professional Rental Hire Magento Template For $199

Looking to get started with a professional design template? That default Magento template is pretty tired - we'll have to agree! We can install a Rocket Theme Magento template for you for $299. Checkout the designs below.


NOTE: Each Design has styles you can chose to vary the colors (chose the style drop down Style changer usually on the top right of each template):

Of course you still need to purchase a license for our rental system if you don't have one already :) for $499 if you want to use our rental system, but this could be the way to go if you don't want a full customized template. If you need help customizing the designs our hourly rates are $85/hour for things like changing the logo, putting in custom images, etc however the admin panel for the template will probably get you by mostly for doing these type of changes without needing knowledge of web programming.
