Udemy never stores your full credit or debit card information in our systems. Instead, we work with credit card payment processors who are certified under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
When you enter your credit or debit card details on Udemy, that information is sent directly to secure databases maintained by these payment processors, who then complete the transaction. That partner will then provide us with a portion of the stored information (such as the last four digits of your card number) to help do things like document your purchases and label your saved cards.
During this process, our partner will also provide us with a randomly generated alphanumeric ID called a "token". This token allows us to reference a saved card during future transactions, even though we don’t have the full card number on file ourselves. Because we store a token instead of the full credit card number you originally provided, there is no way for anyone who is logged in to your Udemy account to obtain your full credit card information from within your account. In addition, there is no way for a third party to reverse-engineer a token ID to obtain the credit card information.
Currently, Udemy supports several different payment methods, depending on your account country and location. This article outlines how you can confirm which payment methods are available to you, when you go to purchase a course.

All instructors, regardless of location, have the option of setting a new course price in any of Udemy’s supported currencies.
How can I change the currency for my account?
Due to international tax and compliance laws we are not permitted to change the currency of an account, from the one that is for the nation you are currently residing or located in.
However, if you reside in a different nation than the one your Udemy account was created in, and are presently located in the country of your residence, please contact our support team so we can assist you further.
How can I see what currency is assigned for my account?
The currency that is assigned for your account will be indicated in the course prices you see, when you search for courses on the Udemy marketplace. Please be sure that you’re logged into your Udemy account, however, so that the correct currency is indicated.
In addition, if you’ve purchased a course before, you can also see what currency is registered for your account by reviewing receipts in your Purchase History.
Why have I seen two different currencies at Udemy.com?
Please be sure to log into your Udemy account in order to see the currency that is assigned to your account. If you are traveling or are using someone else’s computer, then the currency you see might be based on the device’s current location or that person’s account, rather than your own.
In addition, if you’re using the Udemy mobile app, please remember that the app features currencies supported by the Apple App Store and Google Play, and can differ from Udemy.com.
I noticed my country’s currency is available on the mobile app but not at Udemy.com. How come?
As noted above, Udemy’s mobile app features the currencies that are supported by the Apple App Store and Google Play.
How are you calculating exchange rates?
Udemy uses a country-specific price tier matrix to determine a student’s localized price. You can see the price tier matrix here. The matrix will be updated periodically based on market conditions.
What taxes are charged for Udemy courses?
Currently, students who reside in the European Union (EU), South Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Australia will be charged VAT (Value Added Tax) or GST (Goods & Services Tax) when they purchase a course. For more information on taxes please read our Taxes: Student FAQs.
Does Udemy charge any conversion or third party fees?
Udemy does not charge any currency conversion fees when you purchase a course.

Please contact your payment provider or bank for information on what fees may apply.

Udemy has a legal obligation to collect applicable transaction taxes including VAT (Value Added Tax), GST (Goods & Services Tax), or other types of sales taxes, for purchases, which may vary depending on a student's local, state, and country jurisdiction. This article includes answers to frequently asked questions we receive regarding taxes for Udemy purchases.
Who has to pay transaction taxes on Udemy purchases?
Students who reside in regions that collect transaction taxes like VAT, GST, or other types of sales taxes may be required to pay a tax when they make a purchase on the Udemy platform. Taxes are calculated based on a variety of factors such as account and billing information.
Udemy reserves the right to change this policy to be in compliance with tax requirements at any time.
How can I preview how much transaction tax will be charged?
During the checkout process, any applicable taxes will be included in your order total before you are charged. The tax amount that was charged will be indicated in your receipt and the tax rate will be reflected in the transaction’s invoice.
Depending on the region you live in and the tax being collected, tax will be included in the display price or included in the total. For example, students purchasing courses in tax-inclusive countries will see the tax included in the course price. So, if the course is priced at £19.99, then the student would pay £19.99 for the purchase.
Students purchasing courses in tax-exclusive countries will see the tax displayed on the checkout page as “Estimated Tax”.
Where can I see how much transaction tax was charged after I make a Udemy purchase?
When you complete a purchase on Udemy, you will be sent a receipt via email, which will break down the purchase price and taxes separately. The amount you paid will be shown on your receipt beside Tax.
Where can I get a copy of my receipt ?
If you require another copy of your receipt you can quickly access one by heading to the Purchase History in your account.
For instructions on how to access this page and to get a copy of your receipt please click here.
Is it possible to get receipts without the transaction tax amount that was charged shown? Or can Udemy remit the transaction taxes I paid?
Due to legal obligations we must show the amount of tax that was charged for each transaction. We will not be able to remove tax amounts from receipts. As Udemy.com is a business to consumer website, we are not able to remove references to taxes from our receipts or invoices.
If a customer wants a receipt or invoice without taxes included because they are a business and therefore do not pay taxes, they would need to sign up for a Udemy for Business account. If you are a business that is interested in the Udemy for Business platform, you can learn more here.
What are Udemy’s Taxpayer Identification Number and VAT ID?
Udemy’s Taxpayer Identification Number is 27-1779864. Our VAT ID is EU372008054.

Udemy does not provide tax, legal, accounting, or other professional advice or services. Udemy’s services are not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, such advice or services. You should consult your own tax, legal, accounting, or other professional advisors for this type of advice or service.
If you want to compare courses to see which ones fit your current needs best, this article outlines how you can preview a course, and see if it’s the right course for you. In addition, this article explains how you can review key information about a course, the instructor(s), and read student reviews on the course landing page.
For tips on how to find a course on the Udemy marketplace, or courses related to a specific subject, please read How to Search for Courses on Udemy.
How to start a free preview
Every Udemy course has some lectures the instructor has selected for a free preview, so students can sample the course content and their teaching style. To start a free preview, please follow the steps below:
- Click on the course icon or course title to proceed to its Course Landing Page
- Next, click Preview This Course on the right-hand side of the page
- Now you’ll be able to watch a handful of lectures selected by the instructor
Reviewing course information
You can also review key information about the course on the course landing page, which includes the following sections:
What you’ll learn?: this section is a summary of what the course will teach you.
Requirements: these are the prerequisite knowledge or tools, if any, you will need to take the course.
Description: a detailed explanation of what the course covers and why you should enroll.
Featured review: the course landing page may also include a Featured review, which highlights a positive experience a student had with the course.
Course content: you can review a list of each lecture title, and any other curriculum items the course includes (quizzes, assignments, practice tests, etc). The entire course length, including non-video lectures, is also posted at the top of the section.
Instructor: this section is where instructors share information about themselves, as well as their experience and expertise. If you click on the instructor’s name, you will be directed to their profile page, which also includes icons for all the courses they teach.
Student feedback: in the Student Feedback section you can see ratings and reviews students have submitted for the course, which may help you decide whether the course is right for you.
When students take a course they are asked what they would rate the course from one to five stars. In the ratings section, you can see what the rating for the course is, and sort through reviews based on their rating, by clicking on the corresponding number of stars.
Please note that instead of using a simple lifetime average, Udemy calculates a course's average star rating by considering a number of different factors such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the likelihood of fraudulent ratings.
Below the ratings are the reviews students have submitted for the course. Reviews include comments from the student about the courses, as well as their rating for it. As a result, student reviews can be very helpful in helping you determine whether the course will meet your educational goals.
In addition, this section may also include a Featured Review, which highlights a positive experience a student had with the course.
To learn more about submitting a review, please read our Leaving and Editing a Course Review article.
If you’ve had Udemy credits added to your account by our team, via a refund, or through a gift and promotional code you’ve redeemed, then they will be automatically applied to your next course purchase at Udemy.com. The credits can be used towards purchasing any Udemy course!
Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive regarding Udemy credits.
What are Udemy credits?
Udemy Credits are a balance that is automatically counted towards your next course purchase, even though the credits have no cash value. So, for example, if you’ve had $5 of USD credits added to your account by our team, and the next course you decide to purchase is listed at $30 USD, then you will only be charged $25 USD.
How are credits used?
Udemy credits in your account will be automatically applied to your next course purchase. So, when you select a course and proceed to the payment page, you will see the total credits that have been applied to the purchase. In addition, if you have any credits left in your account, the remaining total will also be posted.
Please note that Udemy credits can only be applied on purchases that take place at Udemy.com, and not on the Android or iOS Udemy mobile app.
How long do I have to use my credits?
You can confirm the expiration date of your credits by looking at the right hand side of your Credit History page.
I received a gift or promotional code for Udemy credits. How do I redeem them?
If you have received an email for a gift or a promotional code, click on the redemption link in the email to redeem your credits. Once you have redeemed the code, the credits will be added to your account.
What if I lose my gift or promotional code for Udemy credits?
If you lose your gift or promotional code, please contact customer support for the retailer where the code was purchased. Since the initial transaction did not occur on the Udemy platform, we do not have access to the necessary information and cannot offer additional assistance.
What happens if I refund a course that had Udemy credits applied to the purchase?
If you are granted a refund for a course purchase, which used Udemy credits towards it, the credits that were applied to the initial purchase will be returned to your Udemy account. Please note that Udemy’s standard refund policy applies.
Why is there an option to choose Udemy Credits for my refund instead of to my original payment method?
If your transaction is eligible for a refund to your original payment method, you can choose to receive that refund in the form of Udemy Credits instead. The credits will be added to your account immediately after your refund is processed, so that you can use them towards your next purchase.
With refunds to your original payment method, it may take 5 to 10 business days before the funds are posted to your bank account, or longer, depending on your financial institution and location.
For more information regarding our refund policy, please click here.
I selected Udemy Credits for my refund but I’ve changed my mind. Can I have the refund sent to my original payment method instead?
No. Once Udemy Credits are selected as the refund method and the transaction is processed, the refund cannot be reversed in our system and sent to your original payment method instead. Udemy Credits are added to your account immediately after the refund is processed.
Can I request a cash refund for a gift or promotional code before it’s redeemed for Udemy credits?
If you have purchased a gift or promotional code from a third-party vendor, you will need to contact that vendor directly, for information regarding the company’s refund policies.
If I purchase a course as a gift will my credits be applied?
Yes. Udemy credits in your account will also be automatically applied to a course you purchase as a gift.
Can I use my credits on the mobile app?
No. Udemy credits can only be applied to purchases that take place at Udemy.com, and not on the Android or iOS Udemy mobile app.
How can I check my account’s credits?
You can check your account’s credit total, and review your credit history, by navigating to your Udemy credits page. You can access the page by moving your cursor to your initials or profile image at the top right hand, and then by clicking on Udemy credits in the dropdown menu.
You can also get there by clicking here.
In your account’s credit history you can review when and how many Udemy credits were added to your account, the status of the credits (for example: whether they were used towards a course purchase), and their expiration date.
Please note that your credit history page is only accessible at Udemy.com, and not through the Android or iOS Udemy mobile app.
Can I request to have my credits put on hold? Or select credits with a specific expiration date to be applied to my next course purchase?
No. Udemy.com is set up to automatically apply Udemy credits to your next course purchase, regardless of the expiration date, until all your account credits have been used.
Can I redeem more than one promotional code for credits?
Generally speaking, promotional code campaigns are limited to one code per person. Additionally, if you qualify to receive more than one promotional code as part of separate campaigns, only one promotional code can be redeemed for credits, until you have applied that first set of credits towards a course purchase (or until the first set of promotional credits expire).
I received an additional promotional amount with my gift code. How does this work?
Udemy or our partners may run certain campaigns, during which you may receive a promotional amount with the purchase of a gift code in a single code. The gift code amount is equal to the amount paid to purchase the code. The promotional amount is the additional unpaid value that you may receive in Udemy Credits on top of the gift code amount, as detailed in the campaign.
When you redeem the single code, the gift code amount will be applied to your account as Udemy Credits that never expire. The promotional amount will be applied to your account as Udemy Credits that have an expiration date (except where prohibited by law). The promotional amount must be redeemed for Udemy Credits and applied to course purchases before they expire. The expiration date of the promotional amount can be found on the code’s redemption page or by clicking here.

This article outlines how you can redeem a coupon you’ve received for a Udemy course, and begin your learning journey at a discounted price. Gift codes for Udemy courses can be redeemed the same way as a coupon. In addition, the article below includes answers to some of the frequently asked questions we receive about redeeming coupons.
How do I redeem a coupon or gift code for a course?
Coupon and gift codes can be redeemed at Udemy.com. Currently, however, coupon and gift codes are not supported on our mobile app. If you have a coupon or gift code for a course, you can redeem by following the steps below at Udemy.com:

- Click Apply Coupon on the right-hand side of the course landing page.
- Enter the coupon code and click Apply. The price of the course will update to reflect the discount.
- Click Buy Now to purchase the course.
Please note that not all instructors have opted into Udemy promotions, so, some courses may not be eligible for a coupon that is part of an ongoing Udemy sale.
For steps on how to apply a coupon code in your shopping cart, please click here.
Why do I see “sorry, this course is not included in this promotion” when I try to enter the coupon code?
Since Udemy courses are created and managed by the instructors themselves, they determine whether their courses are going to be included in our promotions and sales. So, if you see this notice, it means the coupon code you’ve received cannot be redeemed for that course. Most instructors, however, are enrolled in Udemy promotions. So you’ll very likely be able to redeem the coupon code for a similar course. For tips on how to search for courses on Udemy, please click here.
In addition, please note that Udemy promotions can vary in length and scope, and not all sales apply to our entire marketplace.
How long are coupon codes good for?
If you have a coupon code that’s part of a Udemy promotion, then the coupon code can be used to discount eligible courses, until the promotion ends. The duration of specific Udemy promotions may vary. Some promotions may run for several days, while others may run for multiple weeks.
If you’re unsure about the expiry date of a coupon code an instructor has provided for you, however, we advise asking them directly.
What’s the difference between a Udemy coupon code and an Instructor’s coupon? How can I tell?
Since Udemy courses are created and managed by the instructors themselves, they can also can create coupon codes for their courses if they wish. These coupons can be redeemed the same way as outlined above, at Udemy.com.
Generally speaking, instructors forward coupons they’ve created to their students in promotional announcements from their courses, which often include a personalized message from them. In addition, many instructors also run their own promotions separately from Udemy, via their own social media channels and ad campaigns.
Why can’t I enter coupon codes on the Udemy mobile app?
The Udemy mobile app features the payment systems for Google Play (Android) and the Apple App Store (iOS), and as a result, there is currently no way to redeem a Udemy coupon on those platforms. Instructions on how to enter coupon or gift codes at Udemy.com are posted above.
I recently purchased a course but now I have a coupon code that will discount the course price to lower than what I paid. What can I do?

You can have the system automatically select your saved card for a purchase, by turning on the Show my saved payment methods on the checkout step option. If this option is turned off, however, then no card’s information will be entered, and the payment page will not select the Remember this card box.
To either activate or disable this option, please follow the steps below:

- Click Payment Methods from the dropdown menu.
- Toggle on or off the Show my saved payment methods on the checkout step option.

Please note: We recommend paying the boleto within 5 days to prevent it from expiring. After you pay the boleto, you will receive an email confirming that the boleto was paid, and that you now have access to the course.
If the boleto expires, however, you can get another one for the course or use a different payment method to purchase it.

- You will be redirected from Udemy and asked to confirm your CPF.
- Click Validate and you will proceed to the original payment page.
- Click Boleto Bancario and the boleto will generate again.
- You can print the boleto by clicking on print under the File tab. The boleto can then be taken to a bank for payment or paid online via internet banking.
Please note: we suggest paying the boleto within 5 business days to avoid it expiring.
Commonly Asked Questions
I paid my boleto today but I still can’t access my course. What can I do?
After Udemy receives confirmation the payment's been completed the course will appear in your My learning. Generally, this takes one business day.
If it’s been longer than this, and you still can’t access the course, please contact Udemy Support.
I want a refund and I paid via boleto; how will it be sent?
In the event you would like to get a refund for a course purchased using Boleto Bancário, please contact our support team, who will refund the course purchase price by issuing Udemy credits directly to your Udemy account. Please note that a refund request can only be submitted if the boleto for the course has been paid.
I changed my mind, I would like to purchase the course with a different payment method. Can I do that?
Yes. If you have not paid the boleto yet, then you can purchase the course using a credit card. You can also purchase a course via our mobile app. If you purchase the course using another payment method, then simply do not pay the boleto that you submitted for the course initially.
I have two boletos for the same course; what should I do?
If you have issued two boletos for the same course, but have paid for one of them, then no further action is required. You will be able to access the course.
If you haven’t paid for either boleto, however, then you will be unable to start the course until you have paid for one of them. Once you have paid one boleto then you can ignore the other one.
If you have paid for two boletos for the same course, however, then please contact Udemy Support to initiate a refund. The course purchase price will be refunded by issuing Udemy credits directly to your Udemy account.
Can I choose the due date for my boleto?
No. Once you have issued a Boleto Bancario for the course we recommend paying the boleto within 5 days to prevent it from expiring. If the boleto expires, however, you can get another one for the course or use a different payment method to gain access to the course.
Can I pay my boleto after its due date?
No. We recommend paying the boleto within 5 days to prevent it from expiring. If the boleto expires, however, you will need to get another one for the course or use a different payment method to purchase it.
I didn't pay my boleto in time; can I still pay for a course with another boleto?
Yes. We recommend paying the boleto within 5 days to prevent it from expiring. If the boleto expires, however, you can get another one for the course.
Can I pay in multiple installments with a boleto?
No. The course price must be paid in full when you pay for the boleto.
Do I need to provide proof that the boleto is paid so you can add the course to my account? Or, if I provide proof that the Boleto was paid, can you add the course to my account?
No. The course you purchased with a boleto is added to your Udemy account automatically after we receive confirmation from our payment processor that the boleto was paid. Generally, this takes one business day.
I paid my boleto a couple of days ago, but I still don't have the course in my account. What should I do?
After the boleto is paid it generally takes one business day for the course to be delivered to your Udemy account. If it’s been longer than this, please contact Support and provide a receipt showing that the boleto was paid.

Have questions regarding how Udemy courses are priced? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.
- How does pricing work on Udemy?
- Does Udemy offer promotions on courses?
- Why is the price for a course at Udemy.com different than the price on the mobile app?
- How are you calculating exchange rates?
- Do I have to pay taxes when I purchase a course?
How does pricing work on Udemy?
The instructor of the course determines the list price of the course. In addition, both Instructors and Udemy can offer discounts on courses at anytime. Once you have purchased a course, you are able to learn at your own pace, and you have lifetime access to the course material as long as you continue to have access to your Udemy account.
Does Udemy offer promotions on courses?
Yes! We frequently run promotions that offer courses at great, low prices! If you want to be alerted of our promotions, please make sure you’re subscribed to our promotional emails. You can review your notification settings on your account notifications page.
Why is the price for a course at Udemy.com different than the price on the mobile app?
Depending on your device, location, and what country your Udemy account is registered in, your payment options on the mobile app may include Apple App Store and Google Play. Udemy does not have control over the price tier structure provided by these platforms. As a result, the course price listed on the mobile apps may differ slightly from the course price posted on Udemy.com. This is because the pricing matrix for these mobile providers will select the price tier that is closest to the course price set by the Udemy instructor, but they do not always match up exactly.
Additionally, courses on the mobile app may have a different price listed during a sale, because there is no way to enter coupon codes on the Udemy mobile apps, like there is on the web version of Udemy.com. If you encounter a price discrepancy on the mobile app, and have a coupon code to discount a course, please enter the code on our web version at www.udemy.com. Once you have purchased the course at Udemy.com you will also be able to access it on the mobile app.
How are you calculating exchange rates?
We are using a country-specific price tier matrix to determine a student’s localized price. The matrix will be updated periodically based on market conditions.
Do I have to pay taxes when I purchase a course?
Students who reside in regions that collect transaction taxes like VAT, GST, or other types of sales taxes, may be required to pay a tax when they make a purchase on the Udemy platform. Taxes are calculated based on a variety of factors such as account and billing information. This article includes information regarding taxes that may be charged for Udemy course purchases.
Still have questions?

The SkillsFuture program allows Singapore students to learn new skills by taking Udemy courses, and in addition, you’re reimbursed for the course. The program is overseen by the SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), and as a result, it is only open to eligible students in Singapore.
Below are some of the more commonly asked questions we receive regarding the SkillsFuture program.
How can I participate in the SkillsFuture program?
You can learn more about the SkillsFuture program and how you can participate via the program’s official site.
How do I know if a course is included in the SkillsFuture program?
How can I request that a Udemy course be added to the program?
The courses you see on the SkillsFuture site is a curated list by the Singaporean government, and only those courses are currently eligible for the SkillsFuture Program.
With that said, Udemy submits more courses to be reviewed and considered for approval by the SSG on the monthly basis. If there’s a Udemy course that you would like to be considered for the program, please contact our Support Team to inform us of which one!
How do I receive credit / reimbursement for my SkillsFuture course?
- Ensure that the course is eligible for Skillsfuture Credit at www.skillsfuture.sg/credit. Once you have found a course in the program you would like to take, purchase the course on Udemy using your credit card or PayPal account. You can also purchase an approved course through the Udemy mobile app, using the Android or iOS app.
- Proceed to your Purchase History and download an e-receipt for the course purchase you made at Udemy.com. For steps on how to do this, please refer to this article. Please note that if you purchased the course using Udemy’s mobile app, you can access a receipt for the transaction via your Apple App Store or Google Play account.
- Submit a claim for the course from your own SkillsFuture Account:
- a) Login with SingPass at http://www.skillsfuture.sg/credit
- b) Follow the instructions to submit a claim from the SkillsFuture portal.
It will take approximately one month from the date you submitted the claim for it to be processed and deposited into your bank account, which is linked to your SingPass.
Please note that sometimes course titles may change. If you believe your course is included in the SkillsFuture program, but you were unable to get reimbursed because SkillsFuture couldn't find the course on their list, please contact our Support Team.
What if I need a refund for a course in the SkillsFuture program?
Refund requests for courses approved in the SkillsFuture program are processed the same as all Udemy courses and can be submitted through our Support Team. The Singapore Government and Udemy communicate regularly, however, to prevent fraudulent redemptions through the SkillsFuture program.
If you have any other questions regarding the SkillsFuture program please contact our Support Team.
