New Payments System 2019
Dear Parents / Guardians, 4th June 2019
We are moving to Online Payments to streamline our finances and reduce the challenges presented by using cash. We hope to roll this out for August / September 2019.
The company we deal with is called DataBiz and they have an Online Payments system. This makes it possible for Parents / Guardians to pay all school payments (tours, Book rental, Swimming, etc.) online, using either a debit or credit card.
(We also feel that this is an opportune time to be able to communicate with parents by email – Newsletters, and eventually school reports etc.)
When the system is set up…After logging on, you will be presented with a list of any individual fees that apply to you, showing the total fee amount, the total paid so far, and the total balance due. You can change the amount being paid if you wish to pay in instalments.
The online payment application is provided by DataBiz Solutions (an Irish software company) and it uses Stripe ( an international processing firm ) as its card payment processor. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available. You will be notified by email each time a new charge has been applied to you.
In order for us to proceed, we are looking for your email address that we can supply to DataBiz Solutions to enable them to contact you in this manner.
Please fill out and return by 14th June 2019.
Kind Regards, Brendan Kelleher & Staff.
