The Billing Payment System (BPS) may be tightly integrated with JPS or used as a standalone system. BPS offers a full billing workflow engine facilitating the process from when fees are calculated, discounts are applied, invoices are created, and/or payments are made. The system can be fully automated to make the process of creating invoices and collecting payment as seamless as possible.
BPS can be configured to accommodate any number of fee types and schemes including, but not limited to, open access fees, color charges, page charges, and figure alterations. It has been designed to support various discount schedules including author membership, country, and institutional based discounts as well as promotional codes. Other features include the ability to waive fees, split invoices, and send invoice chasers. Reporting allows your team to track invoice and payment status.
