Credit card

How to pay your fees by credit card.

You can pay online by credit card on Student Services Online when using the following major credit cards:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • UnionPay

From 3 January 2020, a 1.9% Convenience Fee will be applied to credit card payments. To find out more, visit the Card Payment Convenience Fee webpage.

All credit card payments will be made in New Zealand dollars. 

The University does not see or record your credit card details when you make an online payment through the Direct Payment Solutions website.

  7. Click the 'Continue with payment' icon.

Single transaction limit

Credit and debit card providers like UnionPay, VISA, Mastercard etc. may set limits on the amount of money you can pay in a single transaction. Some card issuers may also set daily limits or card limits on the amount of money you can pay.

You may wish to pay your tuition fees in smaller amounts to avoid exceeding the maximum transaction limit. You could also talk to your bank about paying your fees online in one single transaction to the University.

Processing time

Approved credit card payments will generally appear on your University fees account as soon as the transaction is completed online.


Once your payment appears in Student Services Online, you can generate a receipt.
