Hi @codineer,

* Please make sure you are using an accepted payment method. They are listed on this Help Article.

* If you are using a learning program, switch to your Coursera account.

* If your location is India, please read the section which covers the India error message.

* Regarding application, do you mean financial aid application? If so, make sure you have written enough words in each section. You can post a screenshot here so that I can see the error.

* Finally, if you still need help, please click the Contact Us button at the end of the article. Don't forget to log in when you are on the article page.

All the best.

you are welcome @codineer  .if you can’t submit financial aid application it’s happen for many reason : 

1- if you already submit 11 application you must wait until one of the application approved and submit new one because the maximum for financial aid is 11 application at the same time .

2- some addon in the browser not compatible with coursera so try to remove all the addon or use another browser with last updated browser and try to submit your application .

- for indian learners they have a difficulties you need to follow the help article to make payment or wait for coursera provide other options .

for your second question yes if you audit the course you can purchase the certificate you will not lose any progress you will get your certificate when you submit all the assignments and if you start it for free and you complete all the work you can purchase the certificate you can learn more in this help article : Enrollment options

Hi @codineer

Are you from India? 

Learners from India are currently facing this payment issue, and probably, it’s not from Coursera’s side. Check this post answered by Jose A:
