Overpayment and Partial Payment statuses
Some local solutions which Zotapay offers allow end user to deposit less or more funds, than they paid for the item. In order to highlight and track such orders, Zotapay’s Magento application has two additional statuses:
ZotaPay Partial Payment – the End User deposited less than the item costs
ZotaPay Overpayment – the End User deposited more than the item costs
When status is Overpaid or Partial Payment, the true paid amount needs to be displayed in the Payment & Shipping Method.
