Features and Benefits

Streamlined Payment Management

Mitigate confusion by ensuring parents only see the fees that apply to their students. Assign general ledger codes to each fee to help manage district-wide collections more accurately.


PayForIt is PCI compliant. All personal data and credit card and payment information is encrypted and stored in a secure location.


PayForIt makes it easier and more convenient for parents to manage and monitor school payments, meaning schools are more likely to collect funds due and will spend less time chasing delinquent accounts.

Why Choose PayForIt?


PayForIt gives schools and districts the power to streamline a common education pain point – fee collection. When you implement PFI, schools can get away from messy in-school cash and check handling and easily assign, track, and manage payments online for a variety of needs and sources.


The PayForIt parent portal can be accessed via desktop, or on mobile apps for iOS and Android. This means parents can check accounts, add funds, and pay fees anytime, from anywhere.
