Important: Those who purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, while those who confirm participation later or last minute, may likely have to pay a higher fee.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

I have a good friend who is interested in becoming a translator (she now works for an industrial company) and who would like to do this course. However, as she is not yet a translator I assume she doesn't have PayPal or anything like that. How could she pay, as price is quoted in USD?

Hello Paul,

As she goes through the purchase process, your colleague can choose the most convenient payment method for her from the options that she'll see available from the Payment Method page. At the moment, the following payment methods are available to purchase ProZ.com courses:

Credit Card (3rd party processor: 2Checkout)
Skrill, Check or Money Order
Wire Transfer
Western Union

I hope this helps! Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Hi Paul,
Anyone can pay using PayPal. All you need to know is the person's email address, that is, what email they registered for PayPal with.
Hope this helps your friend.
