When setting up a Course Section (within either the Courses or ECFE module) with a Recurring Charge, you must also select Yes or No to Require All Payments.
If Require All Payments is set to Yes and a customer registers for a course after the first recurring payment charge, they will be charged for the missed recurring payment at the time of registration (as well as any Registration Fee if applicable). In the example below, if a customer registers for this Course on July 11th (or after), they will be charged the $25.00 Registration Fee as well as $50.00 for the missed recurring payment on July 10th. They will then be charged the $50.00 again on August 10th and September 10th.
If Require All Payment is set to No, that same customer would be charged only the $25.00 Registration Fee. They would then be charged the $50.00 on August 10th and September 10th.
A Course with a Recurring Charge can also be set up with a $0 Registration Amount and only a Recurring Amount. The person being enrolled will not pay anything up front but will automatically be charged on the specified date. A reminder email is sent before the charge occurs, but they do not receive an actual invoice.
