Step 1: To begin the process of setting up instalments for an Optional Extra, hover over ‘Payment Options’ in the main menu and select ‘Optional Extras’ in the drop-down menu that appears.
Step 2: Next, select ‘Add new’ to create a new Optional Extra, or ‘Edit’ to update an existing one.
Step 3: A pop-up box will then appear with the options for setting up your Optional Extra.
One of the questions you will be asked is, ‘Allow people to pay by instalments?’ – select, ‘Yes’.
Step 4: Once you have selected ‘Yes’ additional fields will appear.
Here, you can select the number of instalments a payment can be made in and the frequency with which they are taken - for example, weekly or monthly.
Step 5: You will also be able to select whether you’d like to charge an additional fee for paying by instalments.
If you choose ‘Yes’, enter the amount you would like the additional fee to be. This will then show you the total cost the Optional Extra will equate to including the additional fee.
Step 6: Once you are happy with your choices and the rest of the Optional Extra’s settings, click ‘Save and Finish’.
You will now have successfully created the option for people to pay for the Optional Extra in instalments.
