How do I pay an invoice online? Any invoice can be paid online using a valid credit card.  Only VISA, DISCOVER, and MASTERCARD are currently accepted.  To pay an invoice, click on 'SUBMIT A PAYMENT'.  In the Online Payments box, select the 'For Account Balance' option, enter the amount you wish to pay, and select the 'Once Now' option.  (NOTE:  Currently, you can only make one payment at a time and cannot make recurring payments).  Select 'Continue to payment'.  Review the amount to be paid and select 'Confirm and Continue'.  Enter your credit card information, and select 'Pay Now'.  

What do I do if there is an error when paying by credit card? If you get an error when paying by credit card, verify that the CREDIT CARD NUMBER, EXPIRATION DATE, and SECURTY CODE are entered correctly.  Also make sure that the NAME, ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, and  EMAIL ADDRESS associated with the credit card account are correct.

Is there a fee for credit card transactions?There is no fee charged to you for credit card transactions.  We are happy to accept your payment by credit card.  However, please keep in mind that Shaarai Shomayim pays a fee to the credit card companies for every credit card transaction, and the fees can be large - especially for Rewards credit cards.  You can always send a check to the Bookkeeping Office to pay any open invoice, and Shaarai Shomayim will not incur any fees to process your check.
