Town of Cushing
Credit Card Acceptance Policy

The intent of this policy is to develop parameters of credit card acceptance for the Town of Cushing. InforME works with the Town of Cushing to provide access to the PayPort service that will allow authorized Town clerks and/or Town officials to accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express credit card payments over the counter for virtually any fee, payments, product or services for which the Town collects payment.

  1. The Town of Cushing will accept credit cards according to the rules of PayPort as administered by InforME. Debit cards will also be accepted but will be processed as a credit card, there will be no option of receiving cash back.
  2. PayPort will add user fees to each credit card transaction according to their most recent fee schedule. Such fee will be disclosed at each transaction and the citizen will be required to sign the disclosure statements for each transaction.
  3. Only trained employees in the Town Clerk’s office will be allowed to accept payments by credit card either in person or by phone.
  4. If the customer is not known by the staff, the customer must provide positive ID or the credit card will not be accepted. Credit Cards not in the customer’s own name will not be accepted even if they have written permission.
  5. The Town of Cushing will NOT accept credit card payments for the discharge of tax liens.
