We accept Paypal, Credit cards, Debit cards and have partnered with Ebanx to allow students to pay in their local currency and at local banks wherever Ebanx operates. Currently, this is the list of countries where we allow payments in local currency.
I) Payments in US dollars
Ideally you should make payments in US dollars; this is our preferred method of payment. However, as listed below, we have other options available for your convenience.
II) Payments in Local Currency
If you live in a country where local currency payment support is available, you can pay in local currency. To avoid currency fluctuations, we have set a fixed price in local currency that is slightly less or more than the price in US dollars, depending on how the exchange rate changes. Moreover, in some countries, taxes such as “IVA” has been included in the final price.
III) Payments in Canadian Dollars
If you would like to make your payment in Canadian dollars, we can accept the payment based on the equivalent US dollar amount based on the exchange rate the day of payment. An e-transfer can be used to make the payment. Contact us for details.
IV) Payments in Euros
If you would like to pay is Euros, a fixed price has been set matching approximately the USD price. You can make a payment in Euros using Paypal or your credit card.
