MySchoolBucks Vendor Transaction Fee

posted Dec 7, 2017, 8:18 AM by Clifton Dancy
Parents who use the online payment system MySchoolBucks to manage their child’s meal accounts will soon see an increase in the vendor’s transaction fee.


Effective December 11, the fee for electronically adding funds to a child’s meal account will increase from $1.95 to $2.49 per transaction. The change, which is the first increase in 16 years, is a result of increasing credit card processing fees, according to MySchoolBucks. As a result of this increase, MySchoolBucks has raised the maximum deposit limit from $125.00 to $200.00.
Please note that MySchoolBucks manages transaction fees and Hampstead School District  receives no part of the fee. Parents can still pay via check to avoid any fees, payable to “Hampstead Lunch Program.”
