*Pain coping practices that build confidence, enhance relaxation, and reduce suffering

Payment Plans and Coupon Codes

Birthing From Within is pleased to offer payment plans and coupon discounts for many of our courses. Payment plans for this course can be found when you click on the drop-down menu next to the ‘Purchase’ button in the header above. Discounts are accessed by entering a Coupon Code on the Payment Page. Please read below to see how Payment Plans and Coupon Codes work.

How Payment Plans work:  

When you choose a Payment Plan, you are choosing the number of months for your plan and the payment amount for each month. You will be asked to enter a credit or debit card number. Your credit or debit card will be charged that amount for the following number of months chosen in your Payment Plan. Payments will be deducted on the same day of the month that you enrolled (though the payment system uses the UTC time zone, which may be up to one day earlier than your time zone, so be aware that payments may be deducted earlier for that reason).

How to use a Coupon Code:

When you click on the ‘Payment’ button, you will be taken to a registration or checkout page (depending on if you have created an account with Birthing From Within before and are logged in to that account). Once you reach the payment page, you will see the total price for your course, and a link that says ‘Have a Coupon?’. Click on that Coupon link BEFORE YOU ENTER YOUR CARD NUMBER to open the field to enter your coupon code. Be sure to enter the coupon code exactly as you see it - do not use uppercase letters. Click on the ‘Apply’ button to calculate the revised price. Then proceed with entering your credit or debit card information to complete your payment and registration.

How do Coupon Codes apply to Payment Plans?

Coupon Codes that apply a percentage discount will take that percentage discount off each monthly payment.  Coupon Codes that apply a dollar amount discount will take that entire dollar amount off your first payment only.
