If I have multiple children attending one school can I pay for all of their fees with a single transaction?

No. Transactions are tracked and funds applied to your child’s balance by using their student ID number. Since Certified Payments only allows you to enter one student ID number per transaction you must pay for each child’s fees in a separate transaction.
