Dec 29th 2015 at 2:12 AM


School Easy Pay

Paying your kid’s school or college costs can be a huge drag, and getting enough money sometimes is not the only problem. These are just some of the costs related to kid’s education:

  • Tuition fees;

  • School Books;

  • Dorm costs (for colleges);

  • New Clothes;

  • Food, etc.

All of these costs turned kid’s education into a huge financial burden for parents. Most of them would like if they could pay all these with monthly bundle payments, in Australia this is possible through the system called School Easy Pay, which divides college or school costs in up to 12 equal installments. This system enables parents to continue following their regular lifestyle while kids are at college and even save money during this difficult time.

E-commerce is currently one of the hottest growing businesses and many retail stores offer their best deals for online shoppers only. Most online stores enable customers to pay goods with their credit card and PayPal accounts. PayPal transactions are much more secure and transparent than credit card ones, and therefore it’s advisable for all people who enjoy the awesomeness of online shopping to register their account. Of course there are lots of other companies that offer online paying services, like: Skrill or Payoneer, but one of the best benefits of PayPal is that it is recognized by most online stores and that it is the most popular online paying systems at the moment. This means that many of your friends also have PayPal accounts and it can also be used for transferring funds from one account to the other with just a few clicks.
