Registration Payment

UCity 3 years ago updated by Brad Brown (Answers in Genesis - Web Development) 3 years ago 6

Will there be a feature to include payment for families in the registration process?

Under review

It is unlikely that we would be able to support accepting payment as a part of the registration process.


Here's what we do support at the moment. The only payment option we currently provide the ability to display a payment processing website link, such as a Paypal link, on your public page to accept donations.


You can customize both the registration form and the confirmation email, so you could use either of those methods to request that participants submit payment. You can also add an "admin only" field in your student roster to the to track who has paid.


It may be possible for us to more prominently display a payment link during the registration process. We wouldn't be able to automatically verify that a payment was made. Would something like that be helpful?

Thank you for your response.


It would be incredibly helpful to have verification of payment if it could be displayed during registration.

As far as customizing the confirmation email to include details of how payment should be submitted, how would I do that? I haven't found anything in the settings toolbar that gives me that option.

Under review

Those options are on the promote page. Just click 'Promote" in the main menu, and there are buttons on that page to customize the participant and volunteer welcome emails.

Would it be possible to expand the number of characters allowed in the confirmation email? Also could there be more options for formatting? I would like our email to be in the form of a checklist, but I have had a very difficult time getting it to work within the form provided. Here is a sample of what we would like to include:

There are two issues here.


The field supports up to 5000 characters, which should be sufficient. However, the editor isn't resizing to fit the content, so on a longer message you will only be able to access the top portion. I have alerted the developer and we'll work on getting that fixed.


Until we get that fixed, your best bet is probably to create your content in a text editor or word processor and past it in. If you run into trouble doing that, let us know and we can change your content for you until we get things fixed.


The other issue is formating. Currently, we only support bold, italic, and new lines. We'll discuss the possibility of supporting more formatting, such as bulleted lists. For now, the closest you can get to what you want would be something like this:
