Hourly billing takes into account the number of classes, price calculation base and the rate for classes. This billing variant is used when the student pays for a certain number of hours (eg when purchasing additional lessons before the final exams). He can choose the number of lessons to be paid or choose the time range in which the lessons are to be paid.
How to enable this type of settlement?
You can easily set up payment in advance type of settlement in the group or individually for the student.
When creating a group, select Hourly in advance option in the Default settlement type field.
Now, you can choose whether you want Unit or Lesson set up as a price calculation base.
What is a price calculation base?
The basis for rate calculation is important when converting the price for classes in the event of a change in their length.
Select LESSON if you want the student to pay the same rate regardless of the length of the course
Select the UNIT if you want the system to calculate the rate when the length of the class changes.
This way, all students assigned to this group will have this type of settlement.
Payment per hour in advance can be also assigned to particular students:
1. Select the student from the list.
2. Go to the Payments tab and click on the Settings icon.
4. Set up Hourly payment in advance type of settlement, choose price calculation base, enter unit’s price and click on the Save and Close button.
