To make it easier for families to pay over time, you may set up any of your programs to automatically charge a credit card up to ten additional pre-defined payments.
When a family gets to the checkout screen, they will see if there is a payment plan option available. (If a family prefers to pay by check or fee waiver, they will not be offered the payment plan.)
There is a $5 deferred billing fee added to the parent's first payment, to cover the extra fees that are generated when charging a card multiple times. An email is sent automatically to the families reminding them that their credit card will be charged, with the date and the amount.
