Allow users to pay for catalog courses in installments


A feature to allow users to pay for a course over several installments (for more expensive courses). There are many third party merchants who can facilitate this. A native solution could also be helpful.

I support this 100%!  Many other online course platforms have this built-in and it's very time-consuming to do this manually through our institutional finance department.

This would be a great update to Catalog. This would make the more expensive courses more accessible and equitable for lower income students.

We have heard from both our campus constituents and peer institutions that this is needed functionality.

In the Vocation Education sector this would be greatly beneficial, as sometimes the cost is split between the apprentice and the employer.  And for a programme that lasts 4+ years, being able to pay in instalments over a longer period of time would be greatly beneficial.
