One-time payments

Usually customers log in to Rhythm for Civics to pay fees, but it is also possible to make payments without logging in. These are known as one-time payments.

To make one-time payments, users click the One-Time Payment link in the header menu. To enable one-time payments, go to the Site Administration page and make sure the Show on the Header Menu check box is selected for the One-time Payment page.

See Site administration.

You can also require reCaptcha for one-time payments.

See Configuring reCaptcha.

Note: The one-time payment functionality requires the October 2020 ( update of Infor Public Sector 11.2, or later. It is not supported if you are using Rhythm for Civics with Infor Public Sector 11.1.

There are some additional settings for one-time payments on the Payment node under Setup > Fees in the Portal configuration:

  • The Allow URL Payment Sharing for Customer and Allow URL Payment Sharing for Public attributes on the Payment node indicate whether users can request one-time payments from someone else. If True, users will see the Request Payment button in the My Fees section of the Instrument Detail widget. They can click this button to email the one-time payment URL to the person who will pay the fee.
  • Set the Require Full Payment of Unpaid Balance attribute to True to indicate that users must pay the full balance when they make one-time payments.

These additional configuration attributes require the April 2021 ( update of Infor Public Sector, or later.
