How to send an invoice to request additional payment or directly charge captains/players (web guide)

Note: Navigate here if you’d like to view screenshots of how to do this on the web.

If a team has not paid its balance by the payment deadline, you can either:

  • request for payment from the captain/players,
  • or you can directly charge* the captain/players.

How to request payment or directly charge players

  • From the league dashboard, tap on the team’s name
  • Tap on the “…” next to the name of the player you’d like to charge
  • Tap on View Details
  • In the Player Details view, tap on the “…” in the top right corner
  • Tap on “Invoice/Charge Player
  • Add the amount you’d like to charge the player
  • Determine if you would like to directly charge* the player, or request payment from them
  • *Note: If the player has paid using a credit card through OpenSports, you can optionally charge the player the additional amount directly (instead of requesting it/sending them an invoice). Direct charges will be processed without requiring the player to accept the charge. If they paid with Apple Pay or Google Pay, then the system will warn you that you need to request payment from them instead of directly charging them
  • Determine if this charge is going towards the team cost (i.e., if the team did not pay off it’s registration cost), or if it goes towards something else (like a player got a red card, and needs to pay a fee for it). Enter the reason for the charge.
  • Confirm the charge. You will now see it reflected in the Player Details page!
