Ubindi works in most countries, and when you set up your Stripe account
for payments you can do so in any of the 40 countries where Stripe operates (for a full list, see here
). However, your currency is set to US dollar by default (so all your classes and passes are presented to students in $US).
You can easily change this to a set different currency to match your home country or that of your students.
How to change currency
You'll find a currency selector on your 'Settings' page (accessed from the dropdown menu at the top right).
There you can choose any of the six following currencies: US Dollar, Euro, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar, British Pound and Indian Rupee. Your selection will automatically apply to all of your content (all classes, passes, etc.).
Simply select the currency you want to display, and notice the confirmation message that appears.
Changing currency will instantly change the symbol on any classes or passes that you have already created. So for example if you have a class that is $10, and you switch to British Pounds, the class will then show £10 and students will pay in British Pounds. The cost of your class doesn't get recalculated to the equivalent amount in the new currency. Only the symbol changes.
If your bank account connected to Stripe is in a different currency from what you present to clients on Ubindi, Stripe will convert payments into your bank currency automatically. However, they will charge you an additional 1% fee. If your bank account connected with Stripe matches the currency on your Ubindi classes, there's no extra fee.

Passes and credits
A pass (often called "punch card") is a bundle of credits that students can buy to access your classes or videos. On Ubindi 1 credit = 1 class or 1 video. Passes don't auto-renew, so when the credits have been used up (or have expired), students need ...
