New Payment Options
07 August 2015 - 18:36
In response to subscriber requests, we’ve increased the payment options for subscriptions to Q-Assessor. These options are described in greater detail on the subscriptions page. The two new options are these:
- Paymode-X: This is a payment processor used by many larger institutions like universities and corporations. It imposes no fees on us either, so we welcome this form of payment. If your institution is picking up your subscription cost, they likely will insist on this mechanism. The information we provide on the invoice is sufficient for your finance people to make the payment to us via Paymode-X.
- PayPal: This payment processor has a global reach and allows subscribers to pay via their PayPal accounts, if they have one, or via credit cards, if they don’t. Due to the low volume of subscriptions that want to pay this way, we have not implemented any automated PayPal functions like a “Pay With PayPal” button. Instead, if you want to pay this way, we will send you an invoice via PayPal that has links by which you can then log into PayPal and send the payment. This works well, though PayPal extracts a usurious percentage rate for “service fees” particularly if there is a currency exchange. If you are in a hurry and are unwilling or unable to pay via one of the above alternatives, then we will work with you to use PayPal.
You select your preferred payment option when requesting a subscription. If there are questions or issues regarding handling payments, we will of course discuss with you via email.
Note: because of problems we have had with bank wire transfers, this payment option is no longer offered.
