The entire EXLskills economy – and all products/services offered on EXLskills – are priced in "EXLskills Coins." Each EXLskills Coin is purchased for exactly US$1, at the time of writing. There is no secondary market for your Coins and they are to be used solely on EXLskills – similar to how you would use airline miles or points.
In order to purchase EXLskills Coins today, you must have a valid credit card that you may add through the billing dialog here. When you add your credit card, you may see a pre-authorization for US$1, however, it will never be charged unless you explicitly purchase coins and/or other services on EXLskills. Prior to any charge, the system will always inform you, and unless previously authorized, get your consent. When you make a purchase on EXLskills, you will notice that you aren't immediately charged. This is because your balance is settled monthly, i.e., if you purchase 10 EXL Coins today and another 5 the next day, you will see a single charge for US$15 at the end of your billing period. The date that your balance will be charged is noted in the billing dialog in EXLskills.
If at some point you wish to have your credit card 'forgotten', you may do that in the same billing dialog that you used to add your credit card. Remember that if you have unsettled charges for the current billing period that your balance will be settled and your card will be charged prior to removal. Once your card is forgotten, your coins will remain active indefinitely and you may continue to use EXLskills premium services – however you would need to add a credit card again if you wish to purchase more coins.
