BOIPA was able to help Scoil Mhuire on their way to smashing their fund raising goals, all thanks to their trusted card terminal.
“We call our BOIPA card terminal ‘George’ and he’s now a vital member of our team who accompanies us to all our fundraising efforts. George has made it easy for us to collect money. He removes the barrier to donations. You still have the challenge to convince people of your cause. But once they arrive at that decision, George has made it easy to convert that ‘yes’ into money,” Darragh Richardson, Scoil Mhuire Tresurer.
Many primary and secondary schools in Ireland are moving towards cashless payment options
Back office times for card per day account for 28 minutes compared with 94 minutes for cash*
Increasing the volume of card payments to 80% of accepted payments can play a crucial part in lowering admin costs, saving a business as much as €6,000 annually*
Cash payments had always got the job done for St Peter’s but was causing inefficiencies compared with emerging digital approaches to payment acceptance. A security breach in Spring 2018 was the final straw that convinced the school to switch to Way2Pay’s digital income collection system for schools.
Way2Pay, in partnership with BOIPA, is Ireland’s fastest growing cashless payment solution for schools and clubs. Allow School parents or Club members pay by text instantly on their smartphones with just a few simple clicks.
“We are delighted with the results from using way2pay. We sent out our first payment request to parents, and we received 50 payments paid online with way2pay on the very first day. The system is easy and convenient to use and cuts down on our workload in the school.”
– Mary Caffery (principal), Sacred Heart School
“We previously used excel for annual contributions, now way2pay does everything for us. You have no idea how much time and effort this saves us!”
– Catriona O Callaghan, Bursar, Gael Scoil Lios na nÓg
“Our parents were looking to pay online for school items such as Voluntary Contribution and Mock Exam fees we are delighted we chose Way2Pay the system is very easy to use and it updates in real time”
