  2. Sign up for a Covcel account using PayPal. Click here for details.

Paying with Pre-Paid Cards

Covcel GED Prep lets you use pre-paid cards for the majority of purchases, but certain restrictions apply.

The following restrictions apply to pre-paid Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards:

  • Covcel doesn’t support entering the three-digit CVV code normally found on the back of some cards. If the code is required by the issuing bank, payments may not process successfully.

Note:

  • Some banks may require registration of pre-paid gift cards by name and billing address.
  • There’s a $1 authorization at the time of order to make sure the payment method is valid. This authorization is not a charge, but banks may hold the authorized funds as unavailable until the authorization expires.

Failed Payments

When you pay for a purchase on our website and receive the message “Failed payment”, this means that our system was not able to charge your credit card.

So, even if you tried to pay 2 or 3 times and you got the “failed payment” message, your credit card was NOT charged. Unfortunately, we cannot influence the payment process.

We encourage you to try purchasing the Covcel course again.
