Charge a Late Fee

If you want to penalize people for registering past a specific date, you'll need to set up the event with an early bird discount or add-on. In addition, you could set up a non-refundable deposit using partial payments.

Set Up Early Bird Discounts

When you use early bird discounts, you don't need to charge a late fee. The standard price becomes the highest price that someone will pay, which has the effect of rewarding early registrants, rather than punishing late registrants.


So, when someone registers before the first date, they'll see the "late" price marked out with the date of the next price bump.


Create an Add-On Late Fee

If you need to manually charge a late fee, make sure it's clearly communicated on the signup's page, then create a late fee as an Add-On. Keep the add-on hidden on Church Center so it can only be applied by an Admin or Manager.


Once a person registers, add the late fee like an add-on, and then send a balance due reminder email.


Expand the attendee's detailed charges to see the late fee listed.
