Purchasing Methods

Method 1: Invite the students to purchase by themselves

The most straightforward approach, where the students complete the purchase by using either a valid credit card or a voucher code. You manage who receive an invitation to purchase and register an account.

Instructions:

  1. Create a class on the Class Management system, if this is not already done.
  2. In the Manage Classes for Students table, identify your class and click on Manage.
  3. Invite the students in the Invite Student to this class section. Review the instructions posted above the box to review your options, provide the email addresses of your students, review the declaration, and then click on Invite student(s).
  4. Wait for the students to complete the purchase. The status of each invitation is displayed in the Manage Invitations section of the management page.

Method 2: Provide a generic link / purchase-as-you-join-the-class model

In some case, it is not possible for you to know in advance who will join the class, or you simply do not have access to the list of emails of your students. You can provide your students with a purchase link that is tied to your class and that does not require an invitation.

Please note that the link is tied to a class ID; make sure to provide the correct link to your students, or the purchase will not be done for the right class.

Instructions:

  1. Create a class on the Class Management system, if this is not already done.
  2. In the Manage Classes for Students table, identify your class and click on Manage.
  3. Scroll down to the Invite Student to this class section. The link to purchase without an invitation is located above the student email addresses box.
  4. Provide the link to your students, and wait for the students to complete the purchase. Each student that complete the purchase will appear in the Manage Invitations section of the management page.

Method 3: Purchase on behalf of the students

You can complete the purchase on behalf of your students by using either a valid credit card or a voucher code. This option is particularly useful if you know exactly who will participate to that class and if you want to start the simulation right away on the first day of class. It is also a great option if your university does not allow or want the students to purchase their access, or if students does not have a credit card.

Instructions:

  1. Create a class on the Class Management system, if this is not already done.
  2. In the Manage Classes for Students table, identify your class and click on Manage.
  3. Invite the students in the Invite Student to this class section, but make sure to uncheck the "Send notification email to students" option. Review the instructions posted above the box to review your options, provide the email addresses of your students, review the declaration, and then click on Invite student(s).
  4. In the Manage Invitations section of the management page, select the invitations for which you desire to do a purchase on behalf, and then click on Purchase on behalf.
  5. Review the list of participants, and then use one of the two options:
    • To purchase with a voucher, enter the voucher code in the Redeem Voucher Code. Click on Apply, confirm the order, and then click on Submit Order to complete the purchase.
    • To purchase with a credit card, confirm the order, and then click on Submit Order to proceed to the payment page. Follow the steps displayed on screen to complete the purchase.
  6. Once the purchase is complete using one of the two options, the students will automatically receive an email with the instructions to register their account.

Purchasing a voucher

A voucher is a prepaid code that can be used as a payment method to use ERPsim and gain access to the Learning Portal. You can either ask for a multiple-uses voucher code (one code that can be used for many redemptions), or single-use voucher codes that can be resold by your university bookstore.

The only way to obtain voucher codes is to request them from the ERPsim Lab. To do so, please provide:

  • The type (multiple-uses code or single-use codes) and the total number:
    • For a multiple-uses code: how many redemptions.
    • For single-use codes: how many codes.
  • The billing address and the email address of the contact person for billing;
  • If possible, indicate who is the requester(s) (the professor(s) who will use the voucher);
  • Indicate by when you need the voucher code(s);
  • Indicate if you need a quote and/or if you need to issue a purchase order before we invoice you;
  • Indicate if you require any additional document to process the invoice (W8-BEN, etc.).

All sales are in Canadian dollars. Should you need an invoice in another currency, HEC Montreal will apply its own exchange rate.

Please send all voucher purchase request at erpsim@hec.ca.
