If you want the credit to be income to you, then you have to invoice for it!
(Is this what you didn't get from Fred's response?)
Just in case you need more specifics...
I would suggest creating a new category called BonusInc.
When you receive and apply the overpayment, you have two ways to deal with
1) Before you apply the payment, add a new line on the existing invoice for
the BonusInc amount. The payment will then exactly offset the total, and
you won't 'see' a credit.
2) Make a new invoice for the bonus income amount. (You may want to use a
numbering scheme that clearly indicates what invoices are specifically for
overpayments - eg: perhaps adding -OP to end of original invoice number??)
You can do this before or after you apply the payment - if after, you'll
'see' a credit, and will have to manually apply it to the new invoice.
I think the former is quicker, but there are some advantages to the latter:
easier to keep track of what was REALLY due from the customer, and to report
back to customer if he has any questions on his account.
