A: Visa and MasterCard (credit or debit) Q: How do I know the EZSchoolPay.com site is secure? A: The EZSchoolPay.com site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Your credit card information is protected by the most sophisticated internet security available (secure-socket layer with 128-bit digital encryption).
We use payment gateway partners that are worldwide leaders in secure web commerce to process payments. We also use a Comodo security certificate that guarantees the transactions for up to $10,000. You can click on the TrustLogo to verify that you are actually using the EZSchoolPay.com web site.
Also, your credit card information is never shared with the school's Meal Tracker® system.
For this tremendous convenience, a flat rate convenience fee*, determined by your school or school district, will be included in the amount charged to your credit card. The fee is clearly identified on the online credit screen prior to your approval.
*The convenience fee is $3.00 per transaction. Checks are accepted by your student's school at no charge.
