How to Log a Payment

Logging payments in Houzz Pro helps you keep track of all the payments you receive. It's a great way to organize payments for your records and accurately reflect your business financials within financial reports.

This is a helpful feature if you receive a payment outside of Houzz or don't use online payments. If you use Houzz Pro online payments, you do not need to manually log payments — they will automatically log when the client pays online. Read more here to set that up: How to Set Up Online Payments
