AutoPay Configuration Requirements

This applies to all AutoPay schools.

Two configuration requirements must be met for non-resident AutoPay functionality:

  1. The invoice billing person must be defined on the invoice. To locate scenarios when multiple payers may have entered billing preferences, navigate to the  Other Possible Payment Accounts Exist query on the AutoPay homepage.

  2. The “Receive Invoice” flag must be checked. The “Receive Invoice” flag is on the relationship between the nonresident person and the student. To review scenarios where the billing person on the invoice is not able to see the invoice, navigate to the NR Billing Person Not Flagged “Receive Invoice” on the AutoPay homepage.
