The PayPal enrolment plugin allows you to set up paid courses.

Course costs

If the cost for any course is zero, then students are not asked to pay for entry. There is a site-wide cost that you set here as a default for the whole site and then a course cost setting that you can set for each course individually. The course cost overrides the site cost.

If the course cost field is not empty, then students trying to enrol will be presented with the option of making a payment to enter.

If you ALSO enter an enrolment key in the course settings, then students will also have the option to enrol using a key. This is useful if you have a mixture of paying and non-paying students.

Verifying the default encoding

Template:Moodle 1.8If you are using Moodle 1.8 or later, you need to verify the default encoding in your PayPal business account as follows:

  1. Login go to your PayPal account, select "My Account" tab, then Profile tab.
  2. Click on "Language Encoding" in the right column Selling Preferences.
  3. Click on "More Options" button and select UTF-8 encoding for both cases. If you are using other software with IPN please check that it is compatible with UTF-8 encoding.
