Online payment with a credit or debit card
When making a payment in your online workflow using a credit or debit card, you are being charged a percentage of the amount you are paying. This amount goes directly to the company who is handling the transaction.
NEW for students booking fall semester 2016:
The charges for use of online payments from the fall 2016 are:
- EU issued debit cards 0,80%
- EU issued credit cards 0,90%
- Non EU cards add on price + 0,50% (for instance non EU credit card = 1,4% and non EU debit card = 1,3%)
- Business/corporate cards add on price + 1,00%
For tenants where the first reservation was made before June 2016, the old fee of 1,4% is still applicable.
A separate company called Teller/Nets provides the online payment option. These charges are automatically added to the amount you have selected to pay to the UCPH Housing Foundation whenever you are using the online payment option. The amount paid to Teller/Nets will not appear in your Account Status as it is not paid to the UCPH Housing Foundation - it will only appear in your credit card statement.
Teller/Nets accepts all kind of credit and debit cards.
Online payment versus bank transfer
When paying via bank transfer, we charge a fee for “the reception of a payment via bank transfer” of 250,- DKK.
Therefore, in most cases the cheapest way for you to make a payment is by paying online in your workflow with a credit card. However, it depends on how much you are paying - in some cases it will actually be cheaper for you to make a bank transfer, please see image below.
However, please note that in order for you to avoid paying any fees when we are returning your deposit, it is important that your initial payment consists of at least the deposit. In this case we can return your deposit rather swiftly (to the credit/debit card account), and you save a fee that we charge to return the deposit using a bank transfer.
