Payment plans are especially useful for courses that run over an extended period of time, such as a year or several months, where the total amount can be significant.
With payment plans, participants no longer have to pay the full amount up front. Instead, they can choose to make a deposit and pay the balance in monthly installments.
But rest assured, there’s no extra work for you (or your customers) because Activity Messenger fully automates the process. You’ll never have to manually invoice or charge clients every month.
To make the enrollment process even smoother, you can add conditional logic to guide participants to their desired class with ease.
