Advantages of using WisePay
Using your debit or credit card, payments to the school can be made conveniently from home, office, or anywhere that has an internet connection. Payments can be made 24/7. You do not have to wait until the school is open and you do not have to write cheques or find cash. Furthermore, at any time you can see your payment history in your 'Wise Account'. Additionally, you can track every transaction that you make. Your Wise Account also allows you to see your balances at any time. This is particularly useful for a school trip that you are paying on instalments or for meal balances. You no longer have to call the school to ask about your balance or wait for a statement to arrive - you can see this information anytime at your convenience.
Further information can be found in the WisePay Information booklet:

WISEPAY - UPDATE REGARDING PAYMENT ISSUES
As part of the ongoing investigations into the payment issues that some parents are experiencing, it has come to our attention that some Visa Debit/Credit Cards are not currently held on the 3DS (Data Secure) database which is why the transactions are unable to be authorised.
If when attempting a payment in WisePay, you are directed back to the screen that asks you to select a payment card, even though you have already added your information, or, you do not see the button on the screen to enable you to approve the payment either by logging into your online banking or to receive a one-time passcode, it could be that your card details are not on the database.
In this instance, please contact the fraud department of your bank to ask them to check that your card is registered as 3D secured.
You may also wish to try using a different Card type if available.
Please be assured that we are continuing with our investigations alongside Opayo.
