Lunch PrePay Account Payments

Parents can prepay on their student's accounts by sending cash or check (made out to Northshore School District). Parents may also pay with credit card using Discover or Mastercard by contacting PayPams. Due to credit card regulations PayPams can no longer accept Visa.


Parents/guardians can either log in to a website www.paypams.com or call
1 (888) 994-5100
to make credit card payments via PayPams.

Other benefits of the system include:

  • Payment access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via the Internet or telephone

  • Email confirmation of transactions and/or account balance

  • Direct payments to multiple accounts with one transaction

  • Pay all at once or schedule future payments

  • Access to balances

To provide these services, the PayPAMS system charges a convenience fee of 5.6% per transaction, with a minimum payment of $25. The first time you contact this service they will ask you to register your information and choose the student(s) you wish to link to your credit card payments. The district does not accept credit card payments via the food service phone number. Parents may continue to make cash or check payments at their student's school. Please include the student ID number with all payments.
