Paying for Courses at the OTP

Q. How to settle the payment online?

Please refer to the Guide for Online Payment by clicking here.


Q. What kind of payment method do you accept at the OTP?

OTP accepts online payment by VISA, MasterCard and Faster Payment System (FPS) new! globally.


Q. Why I could not make further payment using the same credit card?

Maximum 12 transactions within 24 hours are allowed.

You will have to use other cards, or wait until the time limit is over, for further payment.

Technical Issue with the Online Payment
Q. Why does my online payment fail?

Below are some common reasons why payments fail:

  • Your credit card reached the daily maximum transaction number or limit amount. You can ask your credit card service provider to increase when necessary.
  • Your card does not accept international transactions. If you're making payments from abroad, make sure your card accepts international charges.
  • Typing wrong the card details (Card number, expiration date, even One-Time Password code, etc.). Review the details on your credit card.

In other cases, it may relate to the ever-increasing fraud prevention and/or other security measures implemented by credit card service provider to protect the cardholder against card abuse.

We recommend using another credit card, or to try again at a later time. Should the transaction continue to fail you might want to get in touch with your credit card service provider.


The HKGBC has no control over such transaction refusal. Your credit card service provider would not disclose the reason for your failed transactions to HKGBC.


Q. Is it safe to settle the payment online on this platform?

PayDollar, our payment gateway is a fully compliant 3-D Secure solution, a merchant plug-in software that complies with Visa 3-D Secure Protocol and MasterCard SecureCode. PayDollar achieved PCIDSS compliant in meeting the international security standard. For more details of PayDollar, please visit here the webpage -


Q. What is a One-Time Password (“OTP”) Service?

OTP Service is a security feature provided by most credit card service providers. When you make an online transaction, you will receive a 6-digit OTP through a Short Message Service (SMS) to your registered mobile phone number or email address.

Simply enter the 6-digit OTP to authenticate your transaction.


Q: How can I do in case I could not watch the video even my credit card was charged?

Please contact HKGBC Secretariat for assistance.
