Log New Payment

This request logs a new payment on a loan.


There are two types of payments that LoanPro handles: logged and logged and processed. They differ from each other slightly, and here's a breakdown of what a logged payment is:


This request will only log a payment

Logged payments are those that are processed externally from LoanPro. In other words, a transfer of money was made, but LoanPro was not directly involved in the transfer. This request will not pull any money from a card or an account, but it will create a record of a transaction where money was exchanged and, if desired, update the loan's values to reflect the transaction. This type of payment applies to situations like the following:

  • A borrower pays in cash
  • A borrower pays with a check/money order
  • A borrower pays with a card, but the card transaction is processed outside of LoanPro's LMS

For an example of how logging payments works within the UI, take a look at our Log a Payment article.
