Convera to Simplify Payments at NIC

Convera (previously Western Union Business Solutions), a leader in cross-border, cross-currency money movement and payments, and NUCB (NUCB International College, NUCB Undergraduate School, NUCB Business School, ) have agreed on a collaboration to enable students worldwide to pay tuition using a simplified payment process that helps ensure funds arrive on-time and in-full, without hidden charges.

From February 2023, NUCB has implemented Convera's Global Pay platform, which provides students with a price comparison tool and allows them to lock in exchange rates for up to 72 hours. Students can pay in their local or preferred currency to minimize surprise expenses and transparently track their payment status through the online portal, mobile messages and email.

Convera’s platform is trusted by 800+ institutions worldwide to enable payments in 140+ currencies across 200+ geographies.
