Frequently Asked Questions

Payments are made online via our payments portal at the end of your enrolment. 

We use Stripe to process all payments. We recommend using the traditional card option. 

Please make sure you have entered all the details correctly. 

Some browsers may have popups blocked, or other settings which may prevent payments going through. If you are having difficulties, then perhaps switch internet browsers. 

If payments are not going through, then check your banks settings and options, as a failed payment would be the result of an individual’s bank. In the event of a failed payment, your best bet would be to contact your bank for clarification. 

We do have the potential to take card payment over the phone if all other options fail. If this is something you need, then please contact one of our team members.
