How can I make a purchase for a group?
EdX has the ability to facilitate a group purchase for any of its courses on edX.org. This is a great way to easily get a group of employees or colleagues into a course without them needing to go to the site to enroll or pay for the certificate.
To get started, make sure you have a registered account with edX and are logged in. Once logged in, find the course that you would like to make a group purchase for. If the option is available, then click the link on the right hand side of the course description page that say “Purchase for a Group.”
Once clicked you will see a screen pop up providing further directions on how the purchase will work as well as confirming that you in fact are intending to purchase for a group versus enroll yourself in a course.
To continue, click “Purchase for a Group”
At this point you will be brought to a payment screen. Please enter the quantity of seats you would like to purchase, load your payment information and click “Place Order.” The price and total will update based on the quantity you enter based on the cost of the course. Please note that the maximum number of seats you can purchase is 100. If you would like to purchase more than this please reach out to our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a request on the edX Business page, https://www.edx.org/business.
Please note organization name is required.
The enrollment codes will be emailed to you and you will receive the following email notification:
Once you receive the email confirmation with the file with the codes, it is up to you to distribute those codes to the individuals. Each individual will be able to click a URL and get straight into the course without paying, but will be required to create an account first on edX. Be sure to assign one code per person and track which code is associated with which person.
By purchasing, you and your organization agree to the following terms:
- Each code is valid for the one course covered and can be used only one time.
- You are responsible for distributing codes to your learners.
- Each code will expire in one year from date of purchase or, if earlier, once the course is closed.
- If a course is not designated as self-paced, you should confirm that a course run is available before expiration.
- You may not resell codes to third parties.
- All sales final. No refunds.
