Directly through the Student Zone
For instructions on how Parents can pay for a subscription through the Student Zone, follow the steps below:
- Log into your child's account.
- Click on one of the subjects you wish to pay for.
- Review which subjects you'd like to pay for. If there are subjects that they don't want to pay for immediately, you can just untick them.
Suite subscriptions include all subjects and a Bundle subscription includes all subjects apart from Languages.
- Once you're ready, click the PayPal button and select the desired payment method.
You do not need a PayPal account to purchase a subscription here — you'll be able to enter your credit/debit card details without creating an account.
- Once you pay for a subject, your child will automatically be able to access it.
Paying through a book-listing company
New Zealand Schools
If your school uses a book-listing company to organise their payments to Education Perfect, there will be a payment deadline dictated by the company you're book-listing with. Book-listing payments must be organised several months before the start of the school year. To check on the payment status of a student, please get in touch with your book-listing company.
If your school uses a book-listing company to organise their payments to Education Perfect, there will be a payment deadline dictated by the company you're book-listing with. After this deadline, we may allow students to pay for their subscription via PayPal. Book-listing payments must be organised several months before the start of the school year. To check on the payment status of a student, please get in touch with your book-listing company.
Paying through PayPal
If your students are required to pay for their subscription directly to Education Perfect, they will be given a period of access at the beginning of the year to give them time to organise payment. They will be provided with a link they can use to submit their payment. After a certain date, access will be cut off for students who haven't subscribed.
We will restore access to students as soon as we receive proof of payment. You can see whether or not a student has subscribed to a particular subject by looking at the Paid Status section of their profile.
Paying by invoice
If your school pays for Education Perfect directly, rather than through a book-listing company, your school will be sent an invoice. It's then up to your school's accounting department how students pay for their invoices. If you have any questions about whether or not a student has paid, it may be best to chat with them.
A student has paid but can't log in, how can we get them on to the system?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if a student has paid but was not given access, or if you have any other questions. Please include any supporting documents, such as receipts, where possible.
Setting up a subscription independent of schools
If you would like to get set up as an independent or homeschooling student, please refer to our article on homeschoolers and personal learners.
