Overview

When making electronic check/ACH/PAD payments within the Application Form, Enrollment Contract, or within the Billing Management tab, parents/payers have a workflow of steps to follow so they can connect their bank account for either a one time, manual, or automated ACH/PAD withdrawals.


Payment Workflows

There are 3 different payment workflows depending on your location and payment processor as explained below. Please note the differences, and if you would like to complete the complimentary migration from Stripe Legacy to SA Payments, please reach out to the Support team.


SA Payments - US

The verification process is automatic for families that choose a direct log-in (SSO) and for those that prefer to manually enter their banking details.

Workflows

Option 1: Logging in directly allows your parents/payers to make an immediate payment. They can click on the 'Agree' button to proceed. Please note, this screen will display your school's name where it says [Connected Account].

Next, they'll be asked to type and select their bank.

Option 2: If the parent/payer is unable to find their bank, they can choose to manually add their account as noted by the arrow in the screenshot above. Next, they'll be able to enter these details.

IMPORTANT NOTE: there are no micro-deposits if your schools is using SA Payments.


SA Payments - Canada

Parents need to manually enter their banking information and will be verified automatically without having to enter micro-deposits. Please note, there is no direct log-in option currently for SA Payment schools in Canada.

Workflow

Manual Entry: When parents choose to connect their bank account or pay through Pre-Authorized Debits they will be asked to enter their banking information.

Next they will see a confirmation screen.


Stripe Legacy - US and Canada

For schools that are still on Stripe Legacy and that haven't completed their complimentary migration to SchoolAdmin payments (contact Support to make the change), parents/payers can choose a direct log-in (SSO) process with their bank, which will automatically verify the parent/payer without having to enter micro-deposits. However, if a parent/payer chooses to manually enter their banking information, then they will be required to confirm 2 micro deposits to verify their account.

Workflows

Option 1: Logging in directly allows your parents/payers to make an immediate payment. They can click on the 'Agree' button to proceed. Please note, this screen will display your school's name where it says [Connected Account].

Next, they'll be asked to type and select their bank.

Option 2: If the parent/payer is unable to find their bank, they can choose to manually add their account as noted by the arrow in the screenshot above. Next, they'll be able to enter these details.

This initiates the microdeposit process. Families that prefer to enter their banking information in manually when making ACH payments will be required to verify two micro-deposit amounts deposited within 1-3 business days to their bank.
