Creating Single Use Purchases and Fees

This article will outline how to create single use purchases and fees for your school or district. Single use purchases are often items like t-shirts, yearbooks, or textbooks.

Where to Begin:

After you have logged into Script with your existing account, take a look at the menu on the left-hand side of the page. On that list, select "Payments."


Creating a Single Use Fee:

Here you'll see a page of your existing Parent Purchases. Select "Single Use" from the list on the left. If you would like to learn more about how to build a recurring fee, you can find everything you need here.


Enter the details of this single use fee: a name, a brief description, when it is due, and how much it costs. The Payment Due Date will be published to the parent or guardian as the final date they are expected to pay the amount owed. 


Now, add the applicable students. This can be done either individually or by a group.


From this list of students, you can edit the details of a one time fee by selecting the three dots on the far right-hand side. By selecting this and choosing "Edit," you will be able to change the desired amount or add any applicable discount to this fee, per student.


Once you have added all the necessary students, all you need to do is make this single use fee "live." To do that, select "Bill Now," reviewing the details, and choosing "Bill Now" again.


Your single use purchase is now live and visible to all necessary parents and guardians. When you revisit this single use purchase from the Purchases screen, you'll be able to keep track of which parents/guardians have signed and paid, as well as the total revenue collected.
