What happens when an order is paid for with Partial.ly?
When a customer checks out with Partial.ly, the order will automatically be added to your Shopify account with all product and customer information. The Shopify order will have the status of 'partially paid'.
Shopify requires payments to be authorized and then captured, which are both automatically handled by Partial.ly. There are two options for how Partial.ly payments can integrate with the Shopify order:
Option 1 (Default): Partial.ly will create a single authorized transaction upon order creation, which will be fully captured when the payment plan is paid in full.
Option 1 has the benefit of only a single authorized transaction appearing in the Shopify order timeline. The downside is that the amount paid on the Shopify order will not update until the plan is paid in full. This means the customer may have have paid 50% of the balance due, but it will not reflect in Shopify. You would need to log into partial.ly/login to view the paid amount. Once the plan is paid in full, the full amount will be captured and the Shopify order will be marked as paid.
Option 2: Partial.ly will create 33 authorized transactions upon order creation. This will allow the order to capture up to 33 payments, the max limit allowed by Shopify.
Option 2 has the benefit of tracking every Partial.ly payment on the Shopify order. If the customer paid 50%, you will see they have paid 50% within Shopify. The downside is there will be a the large number of authorized transactions appearing in the Shopify order's timeline.
Option 1 will be the default, but you can change it to Option 2 in your Shopify Settings in your Partially merchant account at https://partial.ly/merchant/shopify/settings under Payment Behavior.
Example of Option 1:
Example of Option 2:
WARNING: There will be a 'Capture payment' button on the Shopify order. Do not click this button. Partial.ly will automatically charge the payments according to the payment plan schedule. If you wish to manually process a payment for the customer, it must be done within your Partial.ly account.
How do I issue a refund?
Partial.ly Plans can only be canceled and refunded through your Partial.ly Merchant Account.
If a cancel/refund is only done through Shopify, it will only generate a notification but no actual refund will be processed, and the plan will stay open and continue to collect payments.You can read more about refunds here: How to Cancel/Refund Payment Plans.
