Manage all payments from collection to reconciliation

Fee Payment Systems

Collecting payments to schools requires a system.  There are so many options for parents and the community to pay for fees, activities, funds and donations just to name a few.  Some parents want to pay online others want to pay in person or over the phone.  Some want the option to create transactions in person, on the phone and online.  To complicate the process even further, we all want the option to pay with different types as well.

At PaySchools we can help you to get to the best solution for all of these challenges.  Below are the products that can be used together or separately to achieve your goals in streamlining the payment collection process.

PaySchools Central

PaySchools Central makes school payments quick and simple. By putting the power back in the hands of parents, we can make registration and payments easy. Parents never have to worry about their children running out of lunch money thanks to greater control over how and when to pay.

A dashboard-style website clearly lays out all information so parents can see students’ balances immediately. PaySchools Mobile App gives users a feature-rich, enhanced mobile experience to quickly and easily fund accounts with a few taps. The easy account setup requires no credit card so parents are up and running in minutes.  Enhanced Auto replenishment means parents never have to worry about their children running out of money. What does this mean for you? Fewer phone calls to your support staff because the system gives parents greater control for payment options, meal restrictions, site navigation and password recovery; the Help Portal assists users with most issues.

PayForIt.net

PayForIt.net (PFI) is a secure web-based system which simplifies payment, collection and balancing of funds for school districts.  PFI is an enterprise solution supporting food service, fees, activities, fund raisers, after school programs and registrations across your district. It enables parents to pay fees and fund accounts quickly and easily online, permitting them to opt into and manage email reminders about their student’s accounts. PFI’s Mobile App allows parents to fund their student’s lunch accounts, see account balances and view their student’s cafeteria purchases for the past 30 days.

PaySchools has been our “go to” electronic payment firm for all District needs. PaySchools successfully collaborated with our technology department, district bookkeepers from elementary, middle and high schools, finance departments and senior management to design and implement the district’s first online electronic payment system, PayForIt.net. This system enabled the district to accept credit card payments for payments of all student fees. The system was so successful that we have now moved our student lunch payments to PaySchools – Greg, District Contracting Officer

PASS: Pay At School System

PASS the Pay At School System provides the ability to support face-to-face transactions in District, for any student from any school.  It helps schools collects cash, check & credit card payments (PCI compliant) for face-to-face transactions including non-student associated transactions like clubs, and donations. With PASS, your district has the ability to look up student information, read necessary notes, view required fees, and process payments…all while speaking with a parent face-to-face. And because PASS interacts seamlessly with PayForIt.net, any fees paid in-person are also automatically reflected online. This gives our districts the ability to accept any payment, anytime, anywhere.
