PaySchools

If a school entity has a need, chances are that PSBA has a service, expert or program to meet that need.


PaySchools

Simple. Convenient. Cost-Effective.
Now your school can accept secure online payments for student purchases -- school lunches, continuing education, registration, prom tickets, T-shirts and anything else school-related – all through your district Web site, eliminating cash transactions and lost checks.

How It Works
Parents access PaySchools through a link on the home page of their school district's Web site. They select the items they want to purchase and then pay for them using credit cards, debit cards, or electronic checks. The payments are automatically processed, and the money is transferred to the school's bank account.
