Enable Partial Payments for a Registration Event

Allow registrants to make partial payments when registering for an event.

Permissions Required

Only available to administrators and users who have the Manage Events permission.

Enabling partial payments allows you to set a minimum payment amount that registrants must pay during the registration process. Registrants can then return to pay the balance of the event over time.

You can choose whether guests without logins can register with partial payments or if partial payments are restricted to only individuals with a Realm login.
