Is there a fee for creating an eWallet? There is no charge to create an eWallet; it is a free service for your school community.

Can parents create an eWallet at any time? Once you’ve enabled the eWallet payment option, eWallets are available for setup two weeks prior to your fair start date and through the end of your in-school fair. Parents cannot create accounts before that time due to credit card preauthorization regulations.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount of funds that can be loaded to an eWallet? There is a $10 minimum in order to set up an account. There is no maximum amount.

Can parents create one eWallet for all of their children? No, parents must create an eWallet for each student; accounts cannot be shared or transferred.
