Can credit cards be automatically charged?
Yes, if you’re using Stripe or PayPal Pro to accept online payments, the "Auto Pay" feature allows you to automatically charge credit cards as soon as you email invoices to your families. Best of all, Auto Pay works with both manual and automatic invoicing.
To get started all you need to do is add a credit card to a family and turn on “Auto-Pay”. If a credit card is on file already and you have permission to charge that card automatically, you can edit the card to turn this feature on. (Parents can also enable/disable this feature in their “My Preferences” page in the Student Portal.)
If a family has multiple credit cards on file, Athleta Desk will automatically try them all, in the order listed, until one that works is found.
This feature is NOT available if you are using PayPal Standard.
