Offer Instalments / Payment Plans


Instalments or payment plans allow you to break the total amount for an offer item into multiple payments, each with its own amount and due date.

The payment plans feature is highly versatile can be used for courses and all other items such as accommodation, transport etc.

Payment plans cannot be created for Unit of Study or Subject Based Courses.

Considerations for Working with Payment Plans

At the offer stage (before the offer is converted), the different instalments in a payment plan can be created and modified. Once the offer is converted, each instalment will generate an invoice (one invoice for each instalment) for the related enrolment and the instalments cannot be modified in the offer.

When a course is added to an offer, the system automatically creates one single instalment for the total amount of the course. By default, this instalment due date is the course start date.

If the student prefers to pay for the offer in full rather than through instalments, there's no need to create new instalments. Simply change the due date as required.

Modify the Instalments Due Dates

Modifying the due date for an instalment is simple. You can modify the due date for multiple items at once.

  1. Select the instalment(s) that you’d like to modify the due date for.

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

  3. Select the new due date.

  4. Click on Update to save.

Instalments Generator Options

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.

The maximum number of instalments that can be created is limited by the duration (in weeks) of the offer item. The minimum number is one, which represents a single instalment.

  2. The scheduled instalments 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. To add instalments, click on the Create icon ➕ at the top right of the data grid. Then enter the details of the instalment.
    Click on Save to finish it.

  4. The total amount for the item needs to be distributed among all the instalments. You can monitor the remaining UnAllocated amount from the details panel.
    Repeat the above process until all amounts are distributed across all the instalments.

  5. Once all instalments have been allocated, click on OK to save.

Instalments Around Holidays

This option will not modify existing instalment plans but will apply to future plans.

By default, instalments are created without considering holidays. This means a due date will be set regardless if that date falls within a holiday period. .However, there are instances where you may need the due date to not coincide with a holiday.

For these cases, you can update your system settings to automatically adjust the due dates to the nearest Monday after the holidays. See the following article for more details:

Updating this setting will not modify existing instalment plans but will apply to future payment plans.
