Dear All,

Pls pardon me for asking a silly question, but I want to know the process of online fee submission for PMI membership as well as for PMP exam through the online mode. I am confused as to how a credit card payment will be made in USD when our Credit Cards are in INR currency domination.

Kindly help to clarify my doubt.




If you have credit card, it will take care of transaction and currency conversion. While paying the fee for any PMI, you will just need to enter credit card number, its expiry date, and its cvv code. Your banker and PMI merchant will take care of all conversion. Keep in mind if you are paying $100, do not expect the exact amount to be deducted from your amount, it will always be higher because of your bank service tax, e.cess, and currency exchange cost. If today $1 = INR 56, you might be actually paying INR 60 per dollar in this case…you don’t have a choice. The amount from your credit card would be immediately deducted but you will get all related deductions details in the next 2 days.

Hope this helps.

Usually do not ask one more shop owner on her behalf vendor associates. Distributor information is known as a business secret inside the retail enterprise, and professionals look at the practice undesirable. risk management

 I paid for the membership as USD 139, but in terms of INR, so much more (FCY Marksup fee, service tax and cess ) was deducted from my HDFC credit card. I am fearing the same will be the case for the exam fee. Is not there a way to pay by iNet account or the debit card, instead of credit cards??


People in the technology industry that want to get into Product Management as a career usually choose to do an MBA. The idea is to get into a reputed B-school’s MBA program and at the end of it, get hired into a tech/product company into a Product Management role (which is what I did as well). While an MBA is a very high-value addition to one’s resume, this route may not be for everyone. For one thing, MBA programs tend to be very generic and broad-based, focusing on business as a whole. But if you are clear that you want to focus on technology and that Product Management is what you want to do, then there may be another alternative for you.

I recently heard about the International PG Certificate in Product Marketing & Product Management(ICPM) , You might find it useful

Credit cared is internationally valid for payment, you can do the payment in any currency through credit card. Also you can apply for PMP Exam through PMP Certification Training providing institutes in India.
