Setting Up Fee Policies

You may want to charge a fee for students to access an activity or a set of activities.  For example, this might any one or combination of the following:

  • A fee collected by Xorro from participants, to enable unlimited use of Xorro-Q, instead of your subscribing to a paid Facilitator Plan (Compare Plans);
  • A fee collected by Xorro-Q or by a content partner for special content (eg activities or questions), for which participants must pay;
  • A fee which your institution needs to collect from every participant in an activity or course: for example a course fee.

In Xorro-Q this is done using a Fee Policy.

A fee policy defines how participants will be asked to pay for membership in a specified group.  Once a fee poloicy is created, it can be assigned to as many groups as required.   There is no limit to how many fee policies your organisation might have.  

A minimum fee applies of US$4.95 per participant.  This amount is recovered by Xorro to compensate for the unlimited use of Xorro-Q.  Fees higher than this amount are shared between Xorro and the Institution.  Tell us your specific requirements.

Every participant who pays any fee under a Fee Policy will automatically receive a Participant Plus account at no added charge (value US$4.95).  If a participant wishes to join several groups with different Fee Policies applied to them, then a fee will apply for each group joined (ie there is no credit on earlier fees paid).  However if several groups have the same fee policy assigned to them, then the Participant will only have to pay that Fee policy one time; activities running for other groups using the same Fee Policy can be accessed by this Participant (if he/she is a member) without paying further fees.
