Instalments and Payment Plans

This article provides a comprehensive guide on managing instalments/payment plans for offers.


Instalment or payment plans are used to split the amount of an offer item into multiple partial payments. Each of these payments can have different amounts and due dates. When the offer is accepted or converted, an invoice will be generated for each of these instalments.

The instalments feature is highly versatile, allowing to create instalments for courses and all other offer items (e.g. accommodation, materials, etc).

For structured payment plans, you can use our instalments generator tool to create the instalments in few clicks.

Instalments cannot be created for courses with Unit of Study or Subject Based pricing.

Access to Instalments Tab

The instalments are created at the offer stage and you can modify them as long as the offer is not accepted/converted.

  1. Go to the offer that you’d like to manage instalments for.

  2. Click on the Instalments tab.

  3. You’ll see all the instalments for that offer in the grid.

Single-Instalment Plan

When you add a course to an offer, the system, by default, create a single instalment for that course with the start date of the course as the instalment due date.

Modify Instalment Due Date

Modifying the due date for an instalment is simple.

  1. Click on the instalment that you’d like to modify.

  2. Click on Change Due Date in the Actions panel.

  3. Select the new due date.

Multiple-Instalments Plan

When you need more than one instalment, you can create additional instalments manually or by using the Instalments Generator tool. Both methods are accessible from the Instalment tab.

Note that the instalments are created for each offer item.

Instalments Options

eBECAS/EDMISS offers an easy-to-use Instalment Generator for creating instalment plans.
It provides the following three options:


Option 1

Set the number of instalments for the course duration and specify the first due date. Each instalment will follow at regular weekly intervals based on the total number of payments.

Optionally, set weeks prior for each subsequent instalment.

Option 2

Set a regular weekly interval for instalments and specify the first due date.

Optionally, set weeks prior for each subsequent instalment.

Option 3

Set the first due date and the second due date by weeks after the first. Then set a weekly interval starting from second due date.

Optionally, set weeks prior for each subsequent instalment.

The maximum number of instalments that can be created corresponds to the number of weeks in the duration of the group to which the item belongs.

The minimum number is one, which represents a single-instalment.

  1. Click on OK to generate the instalments.

  2. The instalments generated will be displayed in the data grid.
    Each instalment comes with a description that includes the item’s name and the period it covers.

  3. Click on OK to save the instalments.

Instalments Around Holidays

By default, instalments are created without considering extended holidays. This means if a due date falls within a holiday period for that offer, it will be set to that date regardless of the holidays.

However, there are instances where you may need the due date to not be during a holiday. For these cases, eBECAS/EDMISS provides two options in the setup.

This options will not modify existing instalment plans. It will apply to future instalments.

Generate Offer Instalments - move back Due Date by Study Weeks (skip Holiday weeks)

This option adjusts the due dates of instalments generated through the Instalment Generator by skipping holiday weeks and only aligning them based on Study Weeks.

Generate Offer Instalments - move around Holidays when due prior to Instalment Date

This option will automatically adjust the due dates to the nearest Monday around the holidays that previously coincided with the due date. You have the flexibility to choose the direction in which you'd like to move the due date.
