Iversity Partners With Paymentwall to Provide Global Payments Coverage
San Francisco, CA, September 17, 2015 (Newswire.com) - In the recent partnership between iversity and Paymentwall, the eLearning platform now supports global payment methods for students and professionals around the world to participate in diverse categories of online courses ranging from design, digital marketing, and visual thinking. Users of iversity can now pay with the most convenient ways to receive course certificates for their career advancement.
"Now, more people have the opportunity to establish career development through interactive online learning courses from professors and speakers affiliated with the University of Buckingham, Reutlingen University, European Commission, WWF, and many more," said Manuel Prinz, Paymentwall’s Strategic Partnership Manager. “Paymentwall lets online course-takers conveniently pursue learning through iversity, no matter where they are.”
iversity is a European massive open online course (MOOC) platform which, in the first 4 months since their courses went live, managed to pull in nearly half a million course sign-ups. It should not come as a surprise as eLearning is a booming industry. The market is rapidly growing due to developments in technology and, according to a forecast by Global Industry Analysts, is expected to reach 107 billion U.S. dollars in 2015.
“Some of our users have had payment issues in the past,” said Hannes Klöpper, CEO of iversity. “It will now become even easier for our users to purchase a certificate that provides documentation of what they learned.”
Users can now make payments, even if they do not have a credit card or a PayPal account, using local payment options, such as Sofort, Paysafecard, iDeal, Webmoney, and many more. With the technology that iversity and Paymentwall bring, it has become even more possible and easier for users to “study anywhere” in the world.
This strategic cooperation between Paymentwall and iversity removes the hurdle of insufficient digital infrastructures hindering participants from pursuing higher education and paying for course certificates. As a result, more professionals can now learn, grow, and expand in their chosen career path.
