Schoopay - online payments made easy
When people register through your website or update their membership, they can pay online and the transaction is automatically recorded in your online member database with Schoolground.
Schools across Australia use Schoolpay to avoid paper forms and cash/cheque handling. Treasurers no longer need to spend hours matching payments from a bank statement. Payments are recorded for you automatically.
The only charge for using Schoolpay is a flat rate of 4.675% of the transaction value. There are no setup fees, no monthly merchant fees, no flagfall fees, no Gateway fees and Visa/MasterCard fees are included.
Payments that people make to you are processed every week from Monday to Sunday and are then automatically paid directly to your bank account each following Wednesday, minus the 4.675% fee. A detailed transaction summary is emailed to you.
Schoolground has partnered with Debitsuccess to facilitate these online payments. Neither Schoolground nor anyone else other than Debitsuccess ever has access to the payments made to you. Debitsuccess is a PCI DSS Compliant provider of billing services. If you already pay your home power bill by direct debit, you may already use Debitsuccess.

If someone elects to use Schoolpay to pay you online by direct debit, under Australian law the payment is processed the next business day. This means there is the possibility that someone could enter their bank account number to pay by direct debit when they have insufficient funds. In such instances the amount will appear as ‘paid’ in your online database and you may be unaware that funds have not been received until you get your cleared payment report each Wednesday. Therefore, if you are delivering expensive products, it is recommended that you wait until payment has cleared before releasing the goods.
If someone elects to use Schoolpay to pay you online by direct debit but they have insufficient funds in their account, it is treated in a similar way to someone writing you a cheque with insufficient funds (ie their cheque would bounce). Their own bank may decide to charge them a dishonour fee. If their once-off direct debt payment fails due to insufficient funds, you will need to contact the person directly to organise payment in another way, or ask them to follow the payment link in the automated confirmation email they received when they registered, to make payment once they have sufficient funds available.
