When you access the 'Online Payments' you must enter student's name and date of birth. These details are entered each time you make a payment as student information is not held within the payment system. No student’s details are given to Westpac. As a consequence, payments for each child need to be made separately. (There is also the option to enter the Student Registration Number and Invoice number but these fields are not compulsory). You must also enter details about who is paying.
This is a secure payment system hosted by Westpac to ensure that your credit/debit card details are captured in a secure manner. These details are not passed back to the school.
Under payment options, you enter the activity or item for which you are paying. Write a title in the 'Payment Description' that will enable the School staff to match your payment with the school activity or item.
You have the ability to check and change any details of the payment before the payment is processed. You can print your own receipts or have the receipt emailed to your email account. This gives you immediate proof that you have paid for the item. The next morning, details of the payments are passed to the school where they will be matched against your child’s account. As a receipt has been issued from the payment page, a further receipt will not be issued by us.
