Upfront Payment Options and Payment Terms provide the power to collect the money needed upfront while offering flexibility to registrants in collecting the balance at a later date without manually setting up an individualized plan.

When creating a sale item, you set the price and how much is due upfront. There are three options:

  • Full Price Due Up Front

  • Partial Amount Due Up Front

  • Nothing Due Up Front

When setting up the conditions for a sale, set the payment terms to be applied to each sale. You may select up to three different terms as options for a sale. Payment terms define:

  • the number of installments,

  • the percentage due per installment, and

  • the amount of time between installments.

Based on the date a sale occurs and the items included in the sale, the upfront payment option and payment term settings are chosen to work together to stamp out an individualized payment plan for the sale.

Example: Order 1

  • Item A: $100 ($40 due upfront)
