How Payment Processing Works in Regpack

Processing payments in Regpack allows you to keep track of and manage all user payments for your program.

Payment filtering and reporting is easy in your Regpack dashboard, and instructions on how to navigate Payment settings can be found here.

Why is online payment processing better?

Online payment processing allows you to streamline your registration process and keep all of your data within Regpack. This also saves you time entering each payment manually to a user’s profile, or logging electronic payments made outside of Regpack into the user’s record.

By processing your online payments through Regpack, you have full control to issue refunds when needed, charge an applicant in your system, as well as see a full history of all payment attempts made by your applicants.

The process is also simplified for your applicants, who can complete payment during the registration process, and avoid the hassle of being redirected to another platform for payment.

Furthermore, with the option to create auto billing plans, admins don’t have to worry about tracking down payments and applicants also don’t have to remember to pay, as charges happen automatically according to the payment plan selected.

Regpack also allows admins to run payment reports, which can be customized with fields such as product paid for, net amount, fee paid to processor etc. The reporting options greatly simplifies the accounting process and allows you to create custom reports for your whole team.

Reports can be run for the time range you choose, and you have the ability to customize the payment processing and user information fields you want.
