When the billing option for a student is set to Assign each charge to a payer's account (payer-centric), the Owner and Assignee of transactions may appear differently than when the billing option is set to Assign all charges to this student's account (student-centric).
When a payer is determined on the payer's tab of the student record, every charge and credit will be owned by the student and assigned to the payer.
Charge: Owner is Student, Assigned to Payer
Credit: Owner is Student, Assigned to Payer
In payer-centric systems, the payment must show it's coming from the payer. This means the payer is the owner. It can be entered 2 ways.
Option 1: Payment: Owner is Payer, Assigned to Student Option 2: Payment: Owner is Payer, Assigned to Payer
note: If Option 2 is selected, unapplied payments will not show on the student record unless the box is marked on the activity tab to 'show all available payments and credits for payers'
