Ever been unable to pay somewhere because you left your checkbook at home and credit/debit cards were not accepted? Very inconvenient. Payette County eliminated this hassle by offering electronic payment options in their clerk’s office. Those who prefer to pay for a marriage license, notary fees, recording fees and other services with a credit or debit card, can now do so and take care of business quickly and efficiently.

“Our customers have been requesting the ability to pay by credit and debit card for quite a while,” Payette County Clerk Betty Dressen said. “Most people don’t carry checkbooks or much cash anymore. Our new service eliminates the inconvenience of having to leave and come back.”

The county now accepts any credit or debit card displaying a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express logo.

Payette County partnered with Access Idaho to provide the payment processing service, PayPort. The partnership operates under a self-funded model in which no tax dollars or county funds were used to develop and none are necessary to maintain the service.

The clerk’s office is the 121st county department in the state to use Access Idaho’s PayPort payment service. In addition to PayPort, Access Idaho manages the state’s official Web portal, idaho.gov, and specializes in electronic government applications.
