Udemy Payment Methods and Options
You can invest in Udemy courses by using one of the following payment methods:
- International Debit and Credit Cards
- Bank Transfers and Cash Payments
- Google Play Apple App Store
These options vary from country to country. e.g. you will not see Paypal option in some countries and cash payments are allowed only in Latin American nations, as well as some nations Europe & Asia.
You will see these options when you go to the course page of the course you want to buy and click the “Buy now” button.
After you click the button, you will be directed to a new page. This page would show you the payment options.
You can choose any one of the four payment methods that is most suitable for you. Let me explain the first two methods in detail.
1. International Debit and Credit Cards
You can use a debit or credit card with International validity to pay for your chosen course. Udemy supports all major credit and debit cards. You can use Visa, MasterCard, Amex and Discover.
You can also use this option if you have a card that is valid in your country and Udemy accepts payment in your country’s currency. In this case you do not need a card with International validity.
Once you select this option, Udemy will show you a form that is similar to the following figure.
After filling the form details, you can hit the “Complete Payment” option. After successfully completing the payment, Udemy will inform you that your payment is done. You will be taken to a page that is similar to the following figure.
You can click on “Start Course” to begin learning immediately.
You can use this option only if you have a Paypal account. Paypal is not available in many countries.
Once you select this option, Udemy will show you a form that similar to the following figure.
You just need to enter your Paypal id to make the payment.
How To Buy Udemy Course at a Cheap Price?
Udemy programs are priced between $20 and $200 but you should never buy a course at its full price.
Most of the time Udemy is running one promotion or the other. If you are lucky, you can buy courses for as little as $10. You can find the current promotional offer by going to the Udemy Homepage.
Here are my few suggestions to buy a course for a very little price.
1. Don’t Buy Immediately
Udemy keeps on running promotional offers. So, a $100 course’s price could drop to about $10-$15 in a day or two. So, it is prudent to wait to check the price again. However, you should check often as Udemy often has flash sales that last only for a couple of days.
I would suggest you to shortlist your courses and buy then in bulk when you see a promotion.
2. Avoid Coupon Sites
So, what’s the problem with Coupons Sites for Udemy?
Well, almost all coupon sites have expired coupons. The coupons don’t work and the sites just aim to increase their revenue with the traffic.
I will strongly advise you against using these websites’ coupons. You can directly go to Udemy to check the current offer7.
3. Use PC Browser Instead of Udemy Mobile App
You can use Udemy’s mobile app to buy a course but you should avoid it. The prices are usually higher on Udemy’s mobile app as Udemy has to share a part of its revenue with Google or Apple.
I would recommend you to always use a desktop browser to pay for your courses. You can use any of the following browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Opera or any other
Udemy is a good platform to learn and update your skills. It has well developed, comprehensive courses catering to a wide range of audiences. In my opinion, it is the best platform to learn anything when you have a tight budget.
