How to Add Funds to Your Glotsalot Account
Back to How to Create a User Profile
Now that your profile has been successfully created, you can create and fund your Glotsalot Account so that you can schedule your lessons. If you have not yet created a profile, go back to the last step; “How to Create a Profile” and finish that step first.
To add funds to your Glotsalot Account, after logging in to Glotsalot.com, go to the small person icon at the upper right of the page, and click on it. The menu that displays should list several options. Click on the Accounts icon. It’s the first option on the list. The page that displays, “ Accounts,” is essentially your Glotsalot bank and wallet. It’s where you can add funds, see your balance, and see charges to your account from lessons you have scheduled or already taken. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the Accounts Summary page. To the extreme left you have the page title “ Accounts Summary.” To the right of this is a green pill shaped button called “Transaction History” We’ll talk more about that later.
Below the Accounts Summary Title there is a small information table titled “Learner Account” This info table show’s your current credit balance with Glotsalot, as well as any pending credits or charges to your account. All amounts in your Account will be listed in dollars and cents. If it’s your first time in your Learner Account, the balance you find should be $00.00.
Next is the Add Funds section. This is where you can add money to your account securely from Paypal, or from another external source. Below the “Add Funds” title is a box where you can enter the amount you want added to your account to pay for lessons, entered in dollars and cents. Entries must be at least $10.00, so if you try to add less, it won’t work and you will receive an error message. How much should I add to my Glotsalot account? That’s entirely up to you. The more you put in at one time, the less often you will have to go back and enter more to reserve a teacher or tutor for a future date. This is also an opportunity to perform a “gut check” on your motivation. If you put an amount of money in, you know you will use it; virtually guaranteeing that you will move closer to your goal of fluency in another language. Just how committed are you to learning your next language?
Once you have entered the desired amount into this block, click on the dollar sign ($) to the right of the block to submit the transaction and calculate the total. Once this has been done, in the table below, the first line will indicate the amount of credit you chose to purchase. The second line will indicate the Admin Fee amount included in the purchase. This is 3% of the amount you chose to purchase, and it covers the Glotsalot Administrative costs for the transaction which include the fee paid to Paypal for their service. The third line will indicate the total amount that will be paid into your account by the Pay source (usually PayPal).
When you click on the yellow PayPal Checkout button, you will be directed to PayPal.com to complete your transaction securely with PayPal. Once you have Authorized the transaction there, you will be redirected to the Accounts Summary page. When you see a balance in your Accounts Summary, you’re all set! Now go back to “Find a Teacher” and get your first lesson reserved now.
Once back at the Accounts Summary page, you should see the green pill shaped button titled “Transaction History” Clicking on this button will take you to your personal Transaction History Page, where you can review the Glotsalot transaction record for the purchase you just made.
The Transaction History provides a full and complete accounting of every financial transaction that has occurred on your account, listed in a table format, with clickable tabs for more in depth information for each line item. At the top left of the page you will see the Transaction History page title. To the extreme right of the page, and to the right of the Transaction History page title is a pill shaped button that says; “Back To Account Summary.” When you have finished reviewing the Transaction History, Click on the Back button to get back to the Accounts Summary Page.
Viewing the Transaction History table, the default is to show all results, or any transactions that the user has had or will have. If you are looking for a specific transaction or range of transactions, you have several options for filtering the data. If you are looking for lessons within a specific date range, you only need to choose a start and end date by clicking on the calendar icons to the right of where it says “ From Date ,” and “ To Date .” Any lessons within the date range chosen will populate in the table below. The table only shows about 25 line items. If you need to see more of the results, A second way to filter your results is to select the specific activity you are looking for. You can do this by choosing an “ Activity Type” From the pulldown list with the same name. Using this method, you can filter for Add Credits Withdrawals, Transfers, Lessons, Cancellations, or Refunds.
A third way to filter your results is to select the specific dollar amount or dollar range you are looking for, if you know it (such as, all lessons between $10 and $20). Just put a dollar range in the search boxes (charges to your account are shown as negative amounts), and the results will populate in the table below.
Viewing the Transaction History table, the top row tells you what will be listed below. You will notice small arrows to the right of the words in each cell of the column title row (the one on top, with the bolded text). Clicking on one of these cells filters all of the results in the table by that column’s information, in alphanumeric order. For instance, the 2nd column to the right lists the Transaction ID Number. If you click the Transaction ID title cell once, you will see that the arrow in the cell will point up, and the table results will be filtered to show the ID numbers with the lowest number first, followed by the next lowest ID number, and so on. Click on this title cell a second time, and the order will be reversed, showing the highest Transaction ID Number. This same filtering tool can be used with any of the cells that has the two opposing arrows in the title cell. If the column has words in it, the results will be shown alphabetically, with the results starting with the letter “A” showing first, and the results starting with the letter “Z” showing last. Clicking on this cell a second time will list the results in order from “Z” to “A.”
When you have filtered for the desired range, your results will show up in the table below. The line items in the table are listed in a self explanatory manner based on the column headers. To the far right, each table entry has a teal colored “Details” button. Clicking on the button will open additional detailed lesson information for the lesson in question.
