Payers: You can add students by name, class/section, by subject name, by student name, by applicant to CRM form.
Partial Payments: this can be enabled when your students/users can pay you in any given time before due date! Example: Student XYZ is billed with $ 1000, student will pay 600 in this month, and 200 in next month and rest when finishing course.
Recurring Payment: this can only be enabled if you have stripe payment gateway integrated.---> How Often: is a cycle period---> Number of Cycles: Is till when the cycle selected should repeat.---> Recurring Invoices Should be Generated From? - which gateway should the invoice be generated if you enable Stripe then a plan will be created in stripe and stipe will send notifications when the cycle is in active sprint(iteration).
Link with Finance Module: Finance module is maintained by the accountant, they can also track expenses, income and analyze profit or loss. There if you want to disclose the payment info with accountant you can link the Fee Category to Finance Module there you'll have to choose the account, Credit Ledger and Debit Ledger.
Multi Currency Support: is used when you run an online school and charge, there you can define currency rates of current day and enable the category so that the currency rate will be constant and wont flicker in future!
Now, if you didn't add payers while creating fee category it's all right you can add invoices to students.
Now go to All Fees & Invoices > Add Invoices(use '+')
There you can add payers then a plan will be created to the payers whom you'll choose
