Manage Payment Methods

If your daycare center allows you to pay invoices online, you can pay invoices with your credit card, or you can pay invoices via ACH with your bank account. Click a link below to jump to a specific account type.

Manage Bank Accounts

Adding a bank account to KidKare allows you to set up one-time or recurring ACH payments. This authorizes your bank to quickly send money from your account to pay your invoices, eliminating the need for paper checks and cash payments. This payment method is referred to as an ACH payment. Paying your invoices with ACH can save you money, as the processing fees charged for this method of payment are typically less than the ones charged for using a credit/debit card.

  1. Log in to app.kidkare.com. Your daycare center should have sent you a welcome email that allows you to create an account. If you have not received this invitation, contact your daycare center.
  2. From the menu to the left, click Payment Settings.
  3. Click Accounts. The Accounts page opens.

Add Bank Account

When you add a bank account, Stripe, the service that processes online payments, will make two small deposits into your account. You have to enter these amounts to verify your bank account. Ensure that all information you enter is accurate.

  2. Click the Name on Account box and enter your full name as it appears on your bank account.
  3. Click the Routing Number and enter the routing number for your bank account.
  4. Click the Account Number box and enter your full bank account Number.
  5. Click Continue. The Pending Verification message displays. Your bank account is at Pending status until you receive the two small deposits from Stripe. Once you receive these deposits, continue to the Verify a Bank Account heading, below.
