The WPM Education E-Payment System allows Alma users to pay fines and fees using My Account in Primo. Once the request is initiated in Primo and processed in the payment system and Alma, both Alma and the WPM Education E-Payment System send payment receipt emails to the user.
The WPM Education E-Payment System must first be configured in Alma to enable online payments. The Pay Fine link must then be configured in Primo. For details, see Configuring the Pay Fine Link.
