A payment template is a pre-set payment structure with one or multiple stages, which can be added to a payment agreement.
Creating payment templates:
To create a payment template, click the “Payment Templates” button on the top navigation. . Click “+ CREATE” at the bottom right of the page. Enter the information for the new template;
Name: A unique name to describe this template.
External reference: A reference to an external system product ID or similar.
Adding Stages: Click “ADD STAGE” and fill out the information specific to this stage of the template. Add as many or as few stages as the specific template requires.
Save: Once the template has all the required stages filled out correctly, click “SAVE” to store the template.
Create as many templates as required for different products.
*TBD: A difference in templates is the option to create a To Be Determined amount to be split across a certain number of payments. This could be utilised for products which have a specific life span, but varying degrees costs.
Example; If the TBD template was for 12 monthly payments for an annual membership, but the membership had a Gold, Silver and Bronze option, a TBD template would work.
Once this template is used in a payment agreement, only the total amount needs to be entered for the relevant membership and will be automatically evenly split across the 12 payments.
