University College Cork was founded in 1845 and is proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world. UCC is a long-established university home to 21,000 students. It is also Ireland’s leading Research Institute and is the first university in the world to be awarded the international Green Flag for environmental friendliness.
UCC receive thousands of multi-currency payments through checks, bank transfers and credit cards from international students. Bank fees and international charges meant UCC were receiving less than expected.
International payments were difficult to reconcile because of uneven amounts and missing reference numbers.
TransferMate offered a solution that meant payments arrived referenced with the full amount due, saving the UCC income team a lot of time.
UCC added a TransferMate payment link, which they included in their website and invoice letter as an additional payment option to their international students.
