When setting up recurring plans and creating manual invoices for the same child (or siblings) the parent(s) will receive multiple invoices. If the parent is signed up to pay online they can pay multiple invoices at once and only one transaction fee will be charged.
Auto Pay is set to Off:
When the parent chooses to pay their bill they will be prompted to pay their entire balance (adding up all invoices sent and their carryover balance if they have one). If they pay all at once there will be only one transaction fee charged.
If they pay in multiple installments, each payment will incur its own transaction fee.
Auto Pay is set to On:
As long as invoices are sent with the same due date, any parents who are set to Auto Pay will have their total payments auto-drafted at once, resulting in only one transaction fee.
If invoices are sent with different due dates the payments will incur multiple transaction fees; therefore, it is important to keep this in mind as you are setting up your recurring attendance and tuition plan due dates.
