Not necessarily incorrect. As has been said if this is a big part of
your business you may _want_ to break the transaction into to so you can
book the pre-payment to a liability account.
What I would say is the easiest way of handling this is, when the
payment is for more than the amount showing as owing: Make a cash
receipt, select the existing transaction to pay it in full, click
update, change the amount to the full amount of the payment then post
the receipt _without_ updating first.

select all the open transaction and click update. if the amount isn't
$0.00 then you have either collected too much or not enough and you need
to make an adjusting transaction to account for that difference.
