Golden bank

The Golden bank is a great way to make the most of your research budget. You may add funds to your Golden bank account at any time and use these funds to pay for job submissions. Funds can be added with a credit card, PayPal, or international bank transfer. For example, if you have US$1,000 left in your research budget, you can add the US$1,000 to your Golden bank account and use those funds to cover the cost of your next several jobs submitted through Golden.

Your Golden bank funds will never expire. If you usually pay with purchase orders, the Golden bank can also help you avoid multiple international bank transfer fees. Just make one large purchase order and transfer funds into your Golden Bank account. Then you can use the funds to pay for several jobs without having to pay the bank transfer fee plus your bank's fees every time. To learn more or to start an account, log in and click on the “Golden Bank” tab in the menu bar.
