Send Invoices Send Invoices from Cheqdin to your customers for recurring or ad-hoc invoices. Parents and carers can make a payment for any amount using the 'Pay Now' button found in the email they receive from Cheqdin.
If a custom amount is not entered by the parent, the full invoice amount will be debited from their bank account on the due date.
Accept Flexible Payments
When making a payment, if your customers have payment arrears or use alternate payment methods like voucher payments/others, they can enter an amount that they wish to make a payment for using the ‘Pay Now’ button.
