How to Use One-Time Charge

When you need to collect money but don’t require a full invoice, you can use Kicksite’s One-Time Charge feature.

Creating a One-Time Charge for a student buying merchandise.

Creating a One-Time Charge:

  1. First, open the One-Time Charge window. There are three points of entry:
    • In the Finances section of Kicksite, go to the Payments tab, then click the One-Time Charge button. Select the Student, Prospect, or Family you want to charge.
    • Go to the Finances module of a Student’s profile, then select One-Time Charge from the Add New dropdown menu.
    • Search Quick Links (which can also be opened using the / key on your keyboard) for One-Time Charge.
  2. Choose a Revenue Stream
  3. Enter an amount.
  4. (Optional) Set up tax for this Charge.
    • Your retail invoice tax rate is used by default. You can change your tax settings in Finances Settings.
  5. (Optional) Add a description. 
    • If you add a description, it’s used as the line item title. Otherwise, the line item is titled as the Revenue Stream.
  6. Click Pay Now and review the summary. Then, either: 
    • Select a Payment Method and click Pay Now again to finish.
    • Click Pay Later if you’d rather wait to collect, or don’t have a Payment Method on file.
    • Click Void to discard this Charge if you made a mistake.

Good to Know

  • Using One-Time Charge creates an invoice with the “MISC” prefix.
  • The fastest way to find a One-Time Charge invoice is to check the attached person or family’s profile, but they also appear in the Invoices tab of Finances.
  • If you need to charge a late fee, set the due date in the future, have multiple line items, or have different tax rates in the same invoice, use the Add New Invoice page instead.
