The New York City Department of Finance is partnering with Electronic payment provider PayNearMe, and 7-Eleven Inc. to enable NYC drivers pay for parking tickets in cash at more than 100 7-Eleven convenience stores in all five boroughs.
To make a cash payment, those with parking violations can visit www.nyc.gov/dofpaynearme and click the “Get Started” button to obtain a PayNearMe payment code for any unpaid balances. The code along with the cash payment for the New York City Department of Finance can then be submitted at a participating 7-Eleven location
.The transaction is a quick process in the story and will generally post to the Finance Department within 15 minutes to an hour. There is a $2.99 convenience fee to use the service.
“No one likes paying parking tickets, but PayNearMe makes it convenient for those who prefer to resolve their debt by paying cash,” said NYC Department of Finance Commissioner Jacques Jiha. “We are pleased to offer this service as an additional payment option for New York City drivers, as it is in line with our consistent efforts to enhance customer service.”
The New York City Department of Finance processed more than 230,000 cash transactions in 2016. Consider every payment made using the PayNearMe service one less person standing on line at a Parking Violations Bureau to make a payment.
“PayNearMe looks forward to working with the City of New York to offer new cash payment alternatives,” said Mike Kaplan, senior vice president of merchant processing. “With a significant number of payment locations, people can pay their fines anytime, day or night. It also removes the strain from city offices and automates the payment process so that payments post on time and money can be put back to work.”
