It is possible to use Enrollment Management Applications without a Payment Gateway. It is not recommended, but if Schools need to use an outside payment link instead of one of the offered and recommended gateways, there are a couple of things to keep in mind in order to make this work.
- In Payment Block Settings the Application Fee Amount Field must be set to $0.00
- Waiver Codes cannot be used
- Reconcile Fees cannot be used for Applications without a Payment Gateway
Note: Currently, there is not a way to add a payment link and have it open up a new tab. When a payment link is placed on the signature tab, a Parent will click on the link and leave the application. In order to get back to the application, a Parent would need to use the back button.
The recommendation for placement of the outside payment link is on the Confirmation tab as this allows the Parent to complete the Application and move to the payment link easily.
