Trusted cashless payments
iPayimpact offers a simple and secure way for parents and guardians to pay for all school purchases in one place, including school dinners, trips, events, tickets and the school shop.
iPayimpact offers peace of mind to school staff, parents, and pupils by removing the need for pupils to bring cash and cheques into school, whether for meals, trips, clubs or otherwise.
Reduce school debt
iPayimpact offers parents and guardians a transparent view of all school payments via their online payment account. The real-time view shows parents their complete transaction history and live cashless balance, eliminating any confusion regarding payments.
Email alerts and notifications inform parents that their balance is low, informing them of any recurring payments due. These alerts allow parents to update their accounts and ultimately saves schools valuable time chasing overdue payments or debts.
All payments are protected under the FCA

iPayimpact gives parents a single view over all their children's activities, including clubs, trips and meal accounts, rather than having separate logins or checkout payments for each child. Parents of multiple children also benefit from having one online payment account for all their children, irrespective of different schools or bank accounts.
Not only can parents pay for school purchases, but iPayimpact also offers schools significant savings on transaction costs, as with multiple schools, and apportions transaction costs across the items in the single basket of payments.
Simply upload information about upcoming school trips and activities to iPayimpact. Through their login, parents and guardians can review or download information relating to school trips, clubs, activities and even sign parental consent forms, saving schools hours of administration time chasing paperwork.
As well as school trips, this functionality can be used for all school information including, school prospectus, newsletters, lunch menus and more, saving schools substantial printing costs and administration hours.
