For paid items, Real Magnet allows you to provision the event to accept credit card payments as well as accept check payments. If a registrant selects to pay by check he is registered for the event, but he has not yet paid and therefore is considered to be a balance due.

The report shows the total amount collected for the event and what percentage is still balance due.

The balance due report provides a total dollar amount. It also displays each individual registrant’s balance due amount. Adjacent to the name is a link “Apply Payment” which allows you to reduce the balance due amount.

It is important to note that Real Magnet does NOT process any check payments. We provide a mechanism for you to track transactions.

NOTE: When reducing balance due you can either reduce it by the full amount of any amount less than the full amount.
