Here are a few more details about paying for your son’s lunch.
The EZ School App accepts Credit and Debit Cards only.
- Add money to your son’s account when ordering your meals.
- Add money to your account without ordering meals. You can order the meals at a later time.
- Or you can order meals and add additional money for unanticipated items your son may want.
To add money to your account without ordering a meal, click on the Save/Pay button at the bottom of the menu and it will ask you if you want to add money.
The credit card company (not PDS or Piccadilly) charges a small credit card fee per transaction (i.e. each time you pay for ordered meals or add money to your account).
The fee is 2.9% of the total amount you have ordered plus any money you have added to the account + a 30 cent flat fee.
|Number of Meals Ordered for August||12|

If you ordered lunch every day for your son and you were able to do that in 4 transactions, your total credit card fee would be only about $30 for the year.
There is a minimum credit card fee of $1.95, so to minimize the fee order as infrequently as you can and preferably over $50 at a time.
