peerTransfer and ECSI Partner to Provide International Students With a Payment Solution For Their Entire Education Life Cycle

peerTransfer, a leading provider of global payment solutions for the education industry, and Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI), a leading provider of customizable solutions supporting the entire life cycle of higher education and post-graduation, have partnered to provide a more efficient, cost-effective payment solution for international students and their educational institutions.

The new partnership will give international students at ECSI partner schools the ability to use peerTransfer as a payment processor for their loan repayments garnering the same advantages gained from using peerTransfer for tuition and other school-related fees. The two companies will also integrate International payment options into ECSI’s tuition payment plan offering providing additional value for partner schools.

Iker Marcaide, CEO and founder of peerTransfer, remarks “We are very excited about the new partnership which will provide our international student customers with a solution for the entire life cycle of their education payments – giving them an efficient, easy and economical international payment solution from the time they pay their admissions deposit through to their last education loan repayment.”

”The peerTransfer partnership provides additional payment options to our platform and will allow us to further streamline the loan and tuition payment process”, said Dan Frazier, COO of ECSI. “We are eager to introduce this new feature to our already robust solutions.”

The partnership provides value to both the school and their international students. By providing additional payment options to streamline loan repayment, school administrators expect to see better revolving funds flow and lower delinquencies. In addition, this integrated solution will reduce manual reconciliation work for financial staff while providing a cost-effective and convenient method for international students to make payments.
