Flywire
Many of our international students studying at our institution are financially supported by their parents in their homeland. In other words, they rely on their families for payment of their class fees. So, Flywire makes international payments convenient by making payment by visiting our college website and finding the Flywire payment option. Some prefer this method over credit card payments or by wiring money to the student's bank account in the U.S., which creates a whole additional step in making payments.

Alternatives Considered
BlueSnap Inc.
Merchant e solutions has a truly awful admin website and is clunky to use. There are almost no options for customization. Bluesnap allows configuration to fit our needs and a much better customer service experience.
