Payment plans are an option you can add to a registration, typically used for higher priced items to spread the cost over time. When a payment plan is enabled for a registration your customers can choose to pay in full or opt for the payment plan.
In order to set up a Payment Plan, the User must have the Season Management authorization assigned to their Role.
Creating Payment Plan
Search for “Payment Plans” and on the payment plan page click the "Create" button.
- Name: Use meaningful name
- Finance Fee: this field is optional. If you want to charge a finance fee, then you will need to create that Product.
- Deposit: This is a set amount required for the customer to pay at time of purchase.
- Schedule: The payment schedule uses prescribed (not relative) dates. The percentages must add up to 100%. You can have as many payments as you wish.
Assigning Payment Plan
You can assign a payment plan to the Registration Settings within a Season or a Level. The Payment Plan that is set at the Level will override the Season settings.
Choosing Payment Plan
As a customer (via Dash Online): After making a selection in the online Program Finder, the customer will have the option of paying in full or selecting the Payment Plan.
