PayByPhone Auto Payments are an automated payment system that records when a vehicle enters and exits a car park and then automatically charges the driver’s payment card so there is no need to manually process a transaction each time you park. Powered using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology, customers must be a registered PayByPhone user to utilise Auto Payments.
How does it work?
ANPR technology at participating car parks is integrated with the PayByPhone cashless payment service. Your entry and exit times in the car park are monitored, ensuring you pay the correct amount for your parking session. Because the payment is automated, account holders whose accounts are active will not run the risk of receiving any Parking Charge Notices for registered vehicles.
To make things even simpler, you are able to register multiple vehicles on your Auto Payments account.
How does this benefit me?
- No need to display a ticket; your parking session is registered against your vehicle registration number
- Pay the correct amount for your parking session
- Optional reminder and confirmation text messaging
- Quick, easy, secure payments
