Now you need to give the Offer a title. This is what will show on reports but is also what will be visible to parents.
If this is a Residential Trip where the students will be away for some time, you can use the below area to add these dates in so that they are clearly visible to parents before they pay. For regular trips, uniform, etc this is not needed. This not does affect payment deadlines and due dates.
Here you have a 500 character limit to add a little more information about this Offer. We advise short and simple key points rather than a full trip letter, etc.
Now you can set the dates around payment due, etc.

Quantity - This is the maximum number of spaces available. One sold out, no more parents can pay for this unless you add more later.
Quantity per User - This is how many times each student can pay for this 1 Offer. For a trip this will be 1.
Now you need to set the payment structure.
Payment required in full - This requires the parent to pay the full amount in one single payment.
Accept Instalments or Full Payment as long as the payment deadline is met - This allows parents to pay the amount in smaller payments until the cost is covered. Should the deadline pass, parents will then be expected to pay any remaining balance in one single payment.
Payment can be made in instalments - This allows you to create a structured payment plan that applies to all with set deadlines, etc.
To create an instalment, first either move the slider or type the amount for the first instalment.
Then set a deadline for this instalment.
Now give the instalment a title (ie, Deposit).
Then click Add Instalment.

To start, untick the box labelled No Users Selected.
Next use the search field to find the students requiring a discount and click their name when it appears to add them to the list.

Repeat until all student discounts have been added, then click Save and Proceed.

View Additional Information - This is simply information you add for the parent to read. No action is required by the parent other than to read the information.
Answer a Yes/No Question - Here you ask a question that requires a Yes or No answer. The parents then click either a Yes or a No button before they can check out.
Select from a List of Options - Similar to the Yes/No Question however you can choose what the buttons say for the parents to pick from (ie. Uniform Item Size, etc)
Agree to a Term or Condition - This gives you a field to enter in some text which is non editable by the parent. The parent then has to tick a box agreeing in order to proceed to payment.
When you add any of these, ensure you click on Add Requirement before continuing.
