Making a Payment
How do I make a payment?
Log in to your student account and agree to the account balance. Go to the "Make a Payment" tab and choose TransferMate in the drop-down menu. Select the country of payment and complete the payer details. To make a payment visit your bank or use online banking to pay in the currency and amount stated in your emailed instructions.
Note: Students from China, India, and Brazil will need to provide identification and payment receipt documents.
How long does a transaction take?
It may take your local bank up to 48 hours to complete the transfer to TransferMate's local account. Once TransferMate receives the funds, TransferMate will make the payment the same day to your school's bank account. These payments are generally received by your school the same day if payments are received by 2 pm GMT. However, the payment may take up to 24 hours to post to your school's bank account.
How will I know if my payment has been successful?
Your student account homepage will display status updates regarding your payment.
I have made an APM/credit card payment, but I haven't received a confirmation that the funds have been processed.
Credit Card/APM/E-Wallet payments can take longer to be cleared.
Example: Payments made from a Union Pay, Visa, or MasterCard can take up to 3 to 5 business days.
How do I make a Bank Transfer payment?
Once you have initiated a payment quote in your student account, check your e-mail for "Payment instructions." The email will advise how to make a payment and contain TransferMate banking information. Once received, you can either use your online banking service (only if it allows for a bank transfer to be done) or go to the nearest branch of your bank and initiate the payment from there with the assistance of a bank teller.
I received an error message and can't proceed with a payment quote.
Check to see if you have a preferred payment method. If you do, you will need to remove it from your Student Account Center payment profile.

- Log into your account
- Click "Make Payment"
- Click "My Profile" and select "Payment Profile"
- Under "Saved Payment Methods," click the gear icon and select "Remove from Preferred"
