From all over the world
The Lucubrate subscribers are from all over the world. Some have access to online payment methods using Credit Card or Debit Card. Some of the Lucubrate subscribers do not have that opportunity.
Access to banking facilities
In many countries, many people do not have access to banking facilities and bank cards. Taking the example of India, there are probably more mobile phone users than there are people with active bank accounts. Telecom operators, in such locations, offering mobile money wallets, which allow adding funds easily through their existing mobile subscription number, by visiting physical recharge points close to their homes and offices and converting their cash into mobile wallet currency. This can be used for online transaction and course purchases.
The Bank Connection for Lucubrate
The Lucubrate project uses PayPal as the project bank. The subscribers can use their PayPal Account, Credit Card or Debit Card to pay for the courses.
PayPal is a global e-commerce business allowing payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet. Online money transfers serve as electronic alternatives to paying with traditional paper methods, such as cheques and money orders.
Other forms of Payment
The Lucubrate project has now opened for “Other forms of Payment” than the use of PayPal or Credit Card.
Where the Mobile Money Wallets is available, the subscribers can use that.
Where neither the Mobile Money Wallets nor PayPal or Credit Card are available, the subscribers can communicate with the Lucubrate Team to find a solution. We have now created a form for that use.
