After you have created a sales order, you can create a downpayment invoice from the admin view of this sales order.
1. To do this, click on the Actions button of the sales order and choose "Downpayment Invoice".
2. Next, a pop-up will appear asking you if you want to invoice a fixed amount or a percentage as a downpayment. This calculation works both ways. If you enter an amount, the percentage will be calculated. If you enter a percentage, the amount will be calculated.
You can also indicate whether you want to calculate the value of the downpayment excluding or including VAT.
3. Once you've clicked on the "Create" button, Akti will display a link to open the downpayment invoice and send it to the customer.
