Set Up Payment Terms

For each payment term, you can specify if the payment can be made in installments. For example, you can define that a payment can be made in three installments with a third of the payment due after 30, 60, and 90 days.

If a payment term must be paid in one installment, you must still specify how the due date will be calculated.
