My credit card was not accepted.  Now what?  Make sure you enter the credit card billing information in the “billing information” section.  This must be the billing address where you receive your mailed credit card bill.

*Special Note to Debit Card Users: Many banks reserve the amount you attempt to charge each time you make an attempt, even if the debit card is declined.  While the money will not be withdrawn from your account, a reserve MAY prevent you from making other withdrawals for several days and MAY create an overdraft.  If your debit card was not accepted due to address verification error, contact your bank to have them update their information to the Address Verification System.

Do I have to enter a certain amount of money each time I use the system?  Transactions may be entered for any amount.  There will be a flat fee of $1.95.

How do I pay for multiple students?  You may make multiple payments with the same charge, but you must make a separate transaction for each student you have set up on your account.

How will I know the payment was accepted?  On the Order Confirmation screen, you will click PAY NOW.  You will then be redirected to a receipt screen.  Print this screen for your records.  You will also receive a payment confirmation email.  DELETE
