Payment plans a solution for education expenses

Payment plans a solution for education expenses

From voluntary donations and/or school fees and digital devices to sports fees, field trips and music classes, there’s no doubt that education costs. A new partnership between New Zealand owned companies – education ICT specialist Cyclone and leading payment solutions provider Debitsuccess – is giving parents/caregivers payment options that are making a positive affordable difference.

The recently launched alliance is providing a unique solution for education expenses – tailored school payment plans enabling parents/caregivers to spread payments for such costs across any day and any frequency.

Leigh Gibbard, School Sales Manager, Cyclone says that with low cost and no finance company involvement, the option is appealing for many schools, enabling them to recoup parent payments with minimal school administration.

“Providing flexible payment options for many education expenses helps families stay on top of these costs, allowing them to choose a manageable payment plan that suits their individual financial situation,” says Mr Gibbard. “This is a new, effective and increasingly popular path for many schools.”

Jesse Harris, National Sales Manager, Debitsuccess echoes these sentiments, highlighting the vast range of expenses that can be covered.

“There is significant financial pressure in education and, with Cyclone, we are pleased to be able to provide schools with a service that they can offer parents/caregivers, enabling schools to focus on what they do best – provide education.

“This option is able to cover various costs including donations, uniforms, sports and music fees, school trips and camps, Chromebooks, iPads, Notebooks and other digital devices that the school provides.”

With an integrated credit control offering, Debitsuccess is the only full-service payment processor in New Zealand and is committed to data security.

“The security of personal information is upmost in many people’s minds, particularly given today’s increasingly online nature,” says Mr Harris. “Being assured that there is excellent data security encourages schools to offer recurring payment options, and our billing platform enables people to allocate their own payment schedule to suit their needs.”
