More sales, more students.

Turn more visitors into customers with Performance Checkout—a faster, single-page checkout. 


Reduce customer drop off with pay-first

Your customers create an account after the transaction is complete, requiring less information from them before payment is taken. 

The entire process is naturally simpler. 

Accelerate conversion with a single page checkout

The entire checkout is streamlined—move prospects through the buying process faster and deliver an easier student experience. 

"I experienced a 58% lift in conversions after switching from the Two-Page Checkout to Performance Checkout.”
