Moneybookers: Even more payment options

July 12th, 2010 | Posted by Kevin in marketplace

italki can now accept payments through Moneybookers, one of the world’s largest payment partners. Moneybookers is used throughout the world to help process:

  • Credit Cards and Debit Cards: In addition to Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and JCB, there is also Visa Delta/Debit (UK), Visa Electron, Maestro (UK, Spain & Austria), Solo (UK), Diners, Laser (Ireland), and more.
  • Online Banking: Giropay (Germany), Direct Debit (Germany), Sofortueberweisung (Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Bulgium, Switzerland), eNETS (Singapore), Nordea Solo (Sweden, Finland), iDEAL (Netherlands), EPS (Austria), POLi (Australia), all Polish Banks, (Bulgaria), and more.
  • Moneybookers ewallet: Moneybookers also has its own electronic wallet

You can view this list when you go to purchase italki credits on the My Finance tab. Here’s an update of what the payment options look like…

One of the key things we believe about italki’s marketplace is that it is important to make it as easy as possible for anyone to join the teaching ecosystem. Unfortunately, not all payment systems are available or popular in every country. Not having a convenient payment option is a barrier for people to transact, and therefore a barrier to learning or teaching a language online.

We hope that adding these payment options will make it easier for many users to pay for teachers and language services on italki. Keep following us, and we’ll continue to tell you know about new features and payment options that we hope will make italki even more useful for language students and teachers around the world.
