|What is PayForlt?|
PayForlt (PFI) is a Secure Online Payment system which simplifies payment, collection and balancing of funds for School Districts.
PFI is a web-based portal system that is part of the QSP suite of products used in the Mountain Lakes School District. PFI was developed and is supported with the ongoing QSP philosophy of quick, simple and practical.
The Mountain Lakes School District offers PFI to our parents to fund student lunch accounts and, in the future, pay student fees online.
-The lunch payment process is automated for both the parents and the district so errors are minimized and the process is standardized.
-Using PFI, cashiers spend less time taking cash at the serving
lines so students have more time to eat. Additionally, there is not a chance of lost lunch money from home to the serving lines!
-Payments can be made by credit card or ACH (electronic checking) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parents' convenience.
-Parents can review what their students are actually purchasing along with account balance information.
