in some business statuses, the customer deposit amount of money as a balance to deduct from it in upcoming transactions (sales orders or invoices) .

I wondering how can I apply this in odoo so that customer payment show the amount of remaining balance after deduct invoice total amount?

for example:

- customer X deposit 1000$ pay it in advance to us
- we register this payment via customer payments 1000$
- after couple of days the customer X make sale order in 750$ and confirm it
- we issued an invoice in that amount 750$ (the invoice status being opened)
- when we want to register the payment of invoice the amount show the whole amount of invoice 750$ hence we expected to show us -250$

please help us to preform this situation and correct us if we acting wrong procedures

Thank you
