This usually happens to correct a mistake, such as when an invoice amount is overstated, the correct discount rate is not applied, and so on.
All tab
Here you can see all invoices with all types of statuses - Paid, Partially Paid, Overdue, Failed
Paid tab
Here you can see all invoices that were successfully paid. The partially paid invoices are not included in this tab.
Overdue tab
Here you're going to see all overdue invoices. The overdue status is dictated by the due date of the invoices - if the due date has passed the invoice is going to receive the overdue status.
Failed tab
Here you're going to see all invoices which have failed payment. The failed payment can occur when there are insufficient funds in the credit card, the CC is blocked, and many more.
