The Expenses module is designed to make it easier for you to set classroom expenses, such as desk rent and wifi, ensure students are then paying these expenses, as well as being easy enough for students to interact with.

Unlike other modules, the Expenses module does not require enabling to get started. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Click Expenses under modules on the left side of your Teacher Dashboard.
  2. Edit a few of our pre-populated/example expenses (i.e Electricity, Desk Rent, etc.) or create your own expenses from scratch using the green 'Add new expense' button.
  3. Set your desired expenses to active by clicking on the draft/active toggle button next to them.


The Expenses module will only appear in your students' sidebar when you have set your first expense as active. We recommend not doing this until you're in class with your students and have introduced the classroom expenses to them, as after the first student signs in, a 7 day countdown begins.

A 'Requested payments from The Bank' widget will appear on student dashboards for them to practice  setting up automatic payments. You might even want to use this as an opportunity to discuss what we use these for in real like, such as avoiding late fees.


If students don't setup the requested payments within 7 days, Banqer will automatically set them up. Students won't be able to edit or delete the payments - so there's no chance of them playing the system. This also means that if they don't have enough money, the automatic payments will still go through, and your students will go into overdraft.

*Note: The Expenses module does not allow for differentiated expenses, meaning that all students have to pay 'bills' for what you set up within this module. If you want to charge some students for certain things, and not others, we'd recommend checking out the 'Debits' function in your Payments & Transfers tab.
