About Elighten Me Learning

The process is very simple and we did not deviate it from standard Moodle. A user comes to your site and clicks on a course. Then they see the page with details of pricing and purchase button, When they click to purchase they are taken to Freshbooks to complete the transaction. This invoice has links to do the payment options and the moment payment is successful, the user will be enrolled in the desired course automatically. Now you can use all the features and payment methods of Freshbooks while keeping your students within Moodle.

How it works with FreshBooks

Using the Freshbooks API, Moodle can accept payments and generate invoices for enrollments. Users are created in Freshbooks, and generates an invoice that is mailed to the person. The person pays just as they would with any Freshbooks invoice and are automatically enrolled in the course. No manual entry is needed. Accept any payment methods you would typically accept through Freshbooks (or their stellar payment system).
