I have a B2B web app in which users can pay to add elements to their public profile. We are keen not to make it look too "e-commerce" as it is for financial companies rather than B2C.
Currently, there is a link in the main navigation called "Awaiting Payment" and a traditional red badge to show how many items are awaiting payment. See mockup below.
We are now required to show a payment history page so I propose to rename the main navigation link "Payments" and include a dropdown menu of two choices:
- Awaiting Payment (which used to be in the top nav on its own)
- Payment History
My questions are:
- Does it still make sense to show the red badge at the main navigation level? If so, should there still be a red badge in the dropdown menu too?
- If there are notifications in the "Payment History" page, should the sum total of the notifications in the menu be shown at the main navigation level?
