Pupil Direct Payments
This feature is only available if your school has enabled it. See In-App Card Payments for more details.
By default all in-app payments are taken on behalf of pupils by school admins or instructors. However your school admin can enable the ability for pupils to make direct card payments using their online account.
Pupils can pay for lessons, pre-paid blocks, courses & charges themselves using a credit or debit card:
- Lessons are charged based on the number of hours unaccounted for and the applicable hourly rate.
- Pre-paid blocks, courses and charges are charged based on the current unpaid amount for the item.
When a pupil makes a payment for a lesson they will be charged based on the applicable hourly rate. The rate used is determined as follows:
- If the pupil has a hourly rate set on their profile this will be used. See Pupil Profile - Default Hourly Rate for details.
- Otherwise the default hourly rate for the school will be used. A school administrator can change this.
As an instructor or school administrator you can manage payments made by pupils in the same way as you do for other payments.
Payments will be shown as taken by the pupil in all payment lists:
You can also access receipts for payments made by pupils in the same way as you do for other receipts.
