eBill

Short for Electronic Bill

ePayment

Short for Electronic Payment (sometimes referred to as an eCheck or ACH Transfer)

All of CASHNet®’s transactions are processed electronically through the internet

Only users you set-up in the Payers section of your CASHNet® login will have access to view your eBills and make payments on your behalf. No one at Oregon Tech has access to view, change or add users to your Payer's login information.

  • You will be responsible for adding/removing Payers from your login
  • If one of your Payers has forgotten their name and/or password you will be responsible for providing them with it by clicking the button called "Resend payer invitation" after clicking edit on that specific Payer (we cannot reset student PINs or Payers passwords in the Cashier's Office)

It is more secure if you do not let others process transactions using your login. Sharing a login can result in access to bank account or credit card information you may not wish to share with the other person. Students should only access CASHNet® using their own login, and should set up each new Payer that they wish to have access.

Yes, you may set your parents up as Payers in CASHNet® (click on your name on the top left and then access the Payer section in the middle of the page)

  • Payers can login at anytime to make payments on the account or view eBills and Recent Activity
  • Payer's financial information will be secured to their unique login (saved account information will only be view able by the Payer
  • Payers may change their password or email address in their own login at any time

Any Payers on your account will be listed in the Payers section of your CASHNet®. You can add or remove Payers as often and whenever you would like. The Payers section also contains a button named "Resend payer invitation" that you will need to use if one of your Payers has forgotten their password (we cannot provide Payers with login information or reset passwords in the Cashier's Office - we do not have access to this information).

Electronic Payments

  1. Navigate to the ePayment form by pressing "Make Payment" button in the blue navigation bar at the top of the screen (scroll all the way to the top of the page)

  2. Press the line item you want to make a payment on

  3. If you are paying on a current balance it will default to the total amount, which you may change it if you are making a partial payment

  4. Complete information for the line item you have selected

  5. After you have filled in the requested information, press "Add to Basket"

  6. You may continue shopping or if you are done press the "Checkout" button

    • If you have questions about how to identify your account and/or routing number (normally located at the bottom of your checks) please contact your bank or credit union for assistance

    • Debit cards cannot be used for this type of payment (if you want to use a debit card you will need to select the credit card payment method)

Credit Cards and Debit Cards

  • The convenience (merchant) fee is actually assessed by the credit card companies (Oregon Tech does not make any money on these fees)

  • Each time a credit card is used the credit card company assesses a convenience fee

    • Oregon Tech has paid these convenience fees to the credit card companies in the past, however with the cost and frequency of these fees climbing we have not been able to continue absorbing these costs

    • Rather than asking all students to absorb these fees in the form of increased student fees, we feel that the cost of the convenience fee should fall on the person using the service

  • CASHNet® automatically assesses the convenience fee to only credit card transactions, so that fee does not have to be passed on to the student body

  • The credit card companies consider the action of charging a convenience for the card holder

  • The customer who uses this service will pay 2.75% convenience fee

  • Yes, however debit card payments will be processed as a "credit card" transaction

    • The convenience fee of 2.75% will apply to all debit card transactions

    • Do not attempt to enter your debit card information as an ePayment (it will not process correctly and you will be assessed a returned item fee of $25)

  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are all accepted by Oregon Tech through CASHNet®

    • All credit or debit card transactions are assessed a 2.75% convenience fee for each transaction
  • Oregon Tech offers the option to pay by either credit card or ePayment all within the same login

  • From your "basket" click the "Checkout" button

    • You will be asked to select a payment method (you will either see "Enter new credit card information." if you have not previously saved your credit card to CASHNet®, or "Use saved credit card information.")
