Customers cannot have outstanding balances or open transactions against their account before deactivation. If there are open transactions, a notification displays in the header. Open transactions include:
- Unposted Invoices
- Unposted Payments
- Open Quotes
If a customer has an active balance or open transactions and you require the account to be disabled, consider using Stop Credit. The customer account remains Active, but no further transactions can be applied to it.
