When setting up Fees Management, it is recommended that you review PowerSchool's payment methods to determine if they meet your district's needs. PowerSchool includes six default payment methods, cash, credit card, check, electronic fund transfer, money order, and other. If needed, you can create as many other payment methods as your district requires.
Manage Payment Methods
- On the start page, choose District under Setup in the main menu.
- Under Fees, click Payment Methods.
- Click New.
- Enter the Code name of the method of payment, such as CP.
- Enter a description of the method of payment, such as Coupon.
- Click Submit.
To edit a payment method, select the method you want to update, edit the information as needed, and click Submit.
Although payment methods can be deleted, it is recommended that you do not delete them to maintain uniformity across the states for state reporting purposes. If you delete a payment method, you must then update any fee record containing that payment method and select a new payment method. Transaction records already created are not affected. To delete a payment method, select the payment method and click Delete.
