School Payments

We help schools, clubs, businesses, and not-for-profit organisations with their online payments and fundraising activities. Primary and secondary schools throughout Ireland use Payzone to process a range of school expenses.

With Payzone, you can go cashless with your school payments. Our solution enables schools to completely eliminate cash and allows parents to pay school expenses online 24/7 or at their local Payzone shop.

Parents and donors can pay with ease while you get full visibility on payments received, reduced administration, increased security and efficiency through cashless payment solutions.

"I love the new Payzone payment system. Got email for 2nd year trip, tada!! Paid and sorted within seconds!! No looking for cash, no kids forgetting to hand it over, no last minute worries. Just done and dusted. It's a fantastic system and I am thrilled the school adopted it as a system to pay bills."

What will my client see?
To make a payment, your client selects the item they require and proceeds to pay.
Each person making a payment will register their details and create their own account.
When they return to pay you a second time they simply enter their email address and password and continue to make their payment.

What about security?
Payzone uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to transmit all data over the internet.
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry-standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

Where does the money go?
The money will go directly to your bank account. There are no third parties.

Do I need a website?
You don't need a website. We can set you up with an administration account so you can log in and accept your client’s payments.

Where can I find a Payzone Agent?
Payzone agents are available in many locations across the country.
