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. Below is an explanation for that field.
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.
You can use the Add Adjustment to adjust off of the enrollment any costs that you are pro-rating for that enrollment.
When you set up Recurring Billing, you enter a dollar amount in the Registration Amount field. That is the amount the person is charged immediately upon enrollment. The registration amount can be $0 if desired. You then set the amount that they will be charged on a recurring basis under the Recurring Amount field. There can only be one recurring amount (it can't vary). In the field Recurring Charge Dates you enter the dates that the automatic charges will occur separated by a comma (i.e. 1/1/2020. 2/1/2020, etc).
