School Tours, and other costs
with one click
IPPN has developed a new payment facility for Schools. Schools can now collect payments directly from parents – no more cash on site.
Through IPPN’s TextaParent.ie service primary schools can request payments from parents via Stripe or PayPal.
The purpose of this payment system is to facilitate the easier collection of school money from parent/guardians and to reduce the amount of cash and cheques being sent into your school.
WHAT WILL MY RECIPIENTS SEE?
WHAT WILL MY RECIPIENT NEED TO DO TO PAY ME?
To make a payment, the parent will simply select Pay. The funds will be
paid directly into the schools Stripe or PayPal account
WHAT TYPE OF CARD PAYMENTS CAN I ACCEPT
The payments made will go directly to your Stripe or PayPal account. Each provider offers their own method of drawing the money into your own bank account.
Stripe: the money will be held in your Stripe account usually for 5 days and then transferred to your bank account.
PayPal: you will have to manually
transfer funds from your PayPal account into your chosen bank account.
Please note that fees are applicable with Providers, you can add these to your payment request.
HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN SOMEONE HAS PAID?
On your ‘send history report’, you will have a list of mobile number(s) that you have sent a payment request to. When a payment is received it will display on this report. Note that parents will have to complete the PayPal transaction fully in order for this to display correctly.
Your chosen provider will have a detailed report of payments made to your account.
CAN I REFUND CUSTOMERS WHO MADE A PAYMENT ONLINE?
