The new fee form will appear (as below)

Give the fee a descriptive name, and an amount.

If this fee will be charged on a one-time basis set recurring to no, and leave fields below it blank.

Recurring Payments

If you want to charge on a recurring basis, set recurring to yes. Doing this will divide your fee amount by the total number of payments, and bill them out at frequency specified in months.

Here is an example:

Fee name: Adult Fee
Amount: 100
Recurring: Yes
Payment Frequency: 1
Total Number of Payments: 3

This fee will appear in the dropdown as "$100 every month for three months - Adult Fee". The customer will be charged $100 on the day of registration, $100 one month later, and the final $100 one month after that for a total of $300.

Press the Save changes button to save your fee

NOTE: Recurring payments were phased out in April 2015 to support our new credit card processing system. If you still need this option please contact
