People constantly look for ways to up-skill so as to take advantage of local and global opportunities. One of the platforms that helps with this is Udemy, an online learning and teaching platform that offers over 200,000 paid courses across various industries, including project management, marketing, and data analysis.

However, many Nigerians currently experience issues processing payments for Udemy courses due to the restrictions on traditional naira cards. But, with a Grey USD card, there’s an easy fix. In this article, we’ll guide you through using your Grey virtual card to pay for Udemy courses seamlessly.

But first, Here’s How to Create Your Grey Virtual Card:

On the Grey Website:

- Log in to your account.

- Once logged in, navigate to ‘Virtual Cards’ in the sidebar menu.

- Click the “Get Started” button. You’ll then be guided through a series of prompts to complete the creation of your virtual card.

On the Grey Mobile App:

- Log into your account and tap “Cards” in the menu.

- Select “Get Started”.

- Tap “Create Virtual Card” and follow the prompts to finalize your card’s setup.

You must have at least $5 in your USD balance to create a card, as there’s a one-time creation fee of $4, and an additional $1 is required to fund your account.

Once your virtual card is created, the next step is to ensure it’s sufficiently funded before paying for your Udemy course.

How to Fund Your Grey Virtual Card

- Check your balance: Ensure you have sufficient funds in your Grey account. You can deposit money into your account using Naira, GBP, EUR, or other supported currency. Afterwards, you can easily convert this into USD within the platform.

- Add funds to your card: Go to your virtual card’s page and select the “Add Money” option. This lets you transfer money from your USD balance to your virtual card.

- Specify the amount: Add anything ranging from $2 to $2,500 to your card. Enter your preferred amount and then click “Continue” to proceed. Grey does not charge additional fees to fund your card.

You can pay for your courses without trouble once you’ve successfully created and funded your USD virtual card. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out.

Paying for Udemy Courses with Your Grey USD Virtual Card

- Select your course: Udemy has an extensive catalogue of courses, and once you’ve found a course you’re interested in, click on the “Buy now” button on the course’s page.

- Proceed to checkout: You’ll be redirected to the checkout page to select your preferred payment method.

- Choose payment method: to use your Grey USD virtual card, select the “Credit/Debit Card” option as your payment method.

Once your payment is successfully processed, you’ll receive a confirmation email from Udemy, and you’ll gain immediate access to your newly purchased course.
