With thousands of nurseries, primary and secondary schools now using our cashless Online Payment System to receive and process payments, experience tells us that parents are only too happy to make payments online!

Cash in schools can cause a variety of issues. Consider the time school administration invests into collecting and managing cash from students! Alongside swallowed-up time, there’s also the issue of lost money, money spent where it is not intended to be spent, hunting high and low for spare change or the cheque book on busy mornings and the potential of bullying or extortion - there must be a better solution!

There is - and ParentMail has it!

In today’s cashless world, online payment collection is the safest method for processing school payments for all involved.

In a recent survey of over 6000 parents, a huge 70% think a mobile app makes it easier to pay; 82% said they were very satisfied with ParentMail’s Online Payments service!
