To play Cantopia, each participating student is required to submit a payment of $14.99 using their credit or debit card. This process is handled by, which accepts all major cards and is one of the world’s largest and most trustworthy online payment processing services.

Students typically do this by responding to the email that is automatically generated when the instructor enters the class roster into the simulation website. Or alternatively, once the instructor has submitted roster information to the website, students can click on the Sign Up link and follow the simple instructions. To create an account, students should be sure to use the same email address that was provided to Cantopia by the instructor.


The first step in setting up Cantopia for the classroom is for the instructor to request a teacher account by submitting information through this online form. The teacher account will be created once we verify the identity of the instructor. This usually takes a day or less. The teacher account is free for instructors, but we do ask that instructors require all students in their class to register and pay for their own Cantopia account.

If this payment method does not work for you, then please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the specifics of your situation. We can be flexible, and will strive to find a solution that fits your needs.
