What is the exact name of your company?


What does your company do?

Payd is a student-first company that’s 100% dedicated to building the tools necessary to help post-secondary students around the world succeed as they aspire for higher education.

What products and services do you provide specifically to campus card operations?

Payd looks at student cards differently. To us, they’re a mandatory tool that can be used to future-proof any institution and unify the student experience. Our all-in-one application creates and hosts a digital student card that will enhance the school's relationship with students, staff and alumni. By integrating all of a school’s services into one agnostic application, we simplify the on and off-campus experience. Plus with our smart saving technologies, student cards will help students actually pay off their education while they are in school. 

Is there a new product or service you want to tell us about?

Payd’s Student Card App is designed to work with your current infrastructure, not replace it. Our dedicated team will work with your current providers to create a more user-friendly experience crafted for both you and your students. By constantly working with Student groups across North America, we continue to finesse the app to ensure that everything they want or need is easily accessible. Through this process, we have developed multiple features that satisfy that asks of North American Students:

Help with Student Loans - Schools can do more than just provide an education, they can help pay for it too. Payd’s smart-savings technologies that are automatically integrated into the app will allow students to save and pay off their education while they are still in school. 

Self-Serve ID Photos - In the application, students can take and have a digital student card automatically generated. With a few clicks, these cards can be added to an apple or android wallet.  

All-In-One Application - With too many school apps, students have grown frustrated and have begun to ignore the services they are being offered. That’s why we’ve simplified the experience by hosting everything in one easy-to-use application. 

Exclusive Deals - With Payd’s extensive list of both local and national retail partners, students that have the student card app will be given exclusive offers through their student card. 

Beyond that, we have worked with schools to develop features that simplify complex and expensive processes. 

Student Card Generation - The payd student card automates the entire process in-app. We ensure every student photo is compliant with Government identification and each school's requirements.

Strengthen Community Partnerships - With our exclusive card-linking technology local vendors can be signed onto your school without an external terminal or any integration. Plus our rev-share model creates an unmatched offer for vendors. 

Expand Your Institution’s Ecosystem - With many portfolio options, students, their parents or guardians,  staff, and alumni can all take advantage of the app. 

Push Notifications - By making every student, staff use the payd app you will have a direct line of communication with all users for push notifications. 

To put it simply: Payd is the student card reimagined.
