Here at Sunlight we love to make your deepest learning wishes come true. We work every day to ensure that your L&D journey is the best possible, and we don't like to hear something is "impossible" because we will most likely work to find a solution and turn that into something possible. However, as we are still growing, we have some small speed-bumps to get rid off, and one of those happens to be Coursera.

Our credit cards are pre-paid cards which can only be used in the provider specified on your order, which works wonderfully with almost every provider we have tried.

However, Coursera's Payment Policy is very clear in the fact that they do not accept pre-paid credit cards, nor do they allow their courses to be gifted. The only possible way to pay is directly from the personal Coursera account of the person who wishes to enroll in one of their courses.

Unfortunately this means that you won't be able to purchase Coursera with the traditional Sunlight card. Instead we invite anyone looking to purchase a Coursera course with Sunlight, to opt for a reimbursement. In parallel we're working on establishing a partnership with Coursera, and trying to get them to change their policy. 

How do I get reimbursed?

If you'd like to know how to get reimbursed, instead of using a card, check out our article on that. You can find it here.
