How do students pay for a subscription through the Student Zone?

If you need to purchase a new student subscription on EP, you can complete this easily through the Student Zone! This article outlines how you can achieve this.

Before we start, there are two things you should know:

  • This method of payment can only be used for schools that have enabled this feature. 
  • Payment through the Student Zone can only be made via a Laptop or PC. The payment feature is not yet supported on our App.

Start by logging into the relevant student's account. Click on any of the subjects you wish to pay for. Click the Make payment prompt.

Depending on how late in the school year it is, students may have the option to continue on EP without paying by clicking Remind me later.

Students can continue working on EP in the meantime. 

Unpaid, remind me later example

Review which subjects you'd like to pay for. If there are subjects that you don't want to pay for immediately, you can just untick them. Then, click PayPal.

From here you can input your PayPal details or select Checkout as Guest if you’d prefer to pay by debit or credit card.

You do not need a PayPal account to complete payment.

Pay with account or credit card example

Enter your email address (this is where your receipt will be sent) and click Continue to Payment.

If the email you enter is associated with an existing PayPal account, PayPal will require you to log in. Alternatively, try using a different email address and continue as a guest.

You'll now be prompted to fill in your card details. Once you have ensured that your card details are correct, click Continue.

Your student's account will then be updated immediately after payment. They will no longer receive this payment prompt and will have access to the purchased subjects as normal.
