We wanted to make it easier for you to contact us, so Legal Training now has a new phone number for you to call us on. We could have gone for an 0845 number without any cost to us, or even an 0870 number and made some money out of it, but we wanted to make things more customer friendly. For that reason, we decided to spend a bit more money and go for a geographic number, so it's cheaper for you to call, especially from a mobile. The number is 0207 5588 247. Since we are an internet provider, we also wanted to give you access to call us from your computer, so if you use Skype just click here to call us for free!
For several years now, we have accepted PayPal as a form of online payment for our courses. It's a relatively simple way of paying, and integrates well with our site. We do know that one or two people have had difficulties with using PayPal though. While we are always happy to walk people through the process, or even accept a cheque if the process is too difficult, we did want to provide people with another option for paying.
Google Checkout was launched recently in the UK, with a similar model to PayPal. The key difference with Google Checkout is that you can have a single account with a trusted provider (Google), and you don't need to register with multiple different web sites when you buy from them. You just enter your details once, and Google takes care of the rest. That means that when someone comes to Legal Training to buy a course, we can re-use the information that they have already entered in to Google to short cut the registration process. It's not particularly labour saving for shopping at just one site, but if you are shopping for Christmas presents too, you will find an increasing number of other internet sites accepting Google Checkout, and the time savings will soon add up.
When we saw the benefits of Google Checkout, we decided it was something that we wanted to offer to our customers too, so we spent quite lot of development effort building an integration from our site to Google Checkout. We'd encourage you to give it a go, and if you have any feedback, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
