TouchNet, the leading provider of integrated and secure commerce and credential solutions for universities, partnered with TransferMate in 2020 to expand its presence and ability to deliver a secure, intuitive payment portal for students studying abroad in the US and Canada.

A custom integrated solution was designed to help higher education institutions solve payment challenges. This enables international students and authorized users to pay all fees, including tuition, books and accommodation expenses, in their local currency or by domestic bank wire through our new solution.

Through this partnership, TouchNet customers now have access to TransferMate Education’s payments portal and benefit from TransferMate’s broad global regulatory footprint.
