  1. Ticket Payments.

      • <$46.00 | $4.95
      • $46.00 - $65.99 | $5.95
      • $66.00 - $115.99 | $6.95
      • $116.00 - $200.99 | $7.95
      • $201.00 - $300.99 | $8.95
      • $301.00+ | 2.5%
    • Ticket payment process: By using this service you understand and empower PAYNYC Fines to act as your agent for the purpose of facilitating your payment to NYC. Your payment for tickets and the NYC convenience fee will be processed directly by the NYC Department of Finance. PayNYCFines only charges its service fee after NYC DOF issues a payment confirmation that your payment has been processed successfully. Users who pay a tickets via PayNYCFines will see three charges on their card statement: (1) "DOF PARKINGANDCAMERANEW" (Ticket payment), (2) "PRKNG&CAMERATIX SERVICE" (NYC Credit Card Processing Fee), and (3) "PAYNYCFINES" (Our service fee). All three fees are disclosed on the PayNYCFines checkout page.
    • Your ticket is not paid until a confirmation code is issued by NYC. Once issued you, you will see the confirmation code the payment confirmation page, in a transaction receipt via email, and via SMS. If you did not get a confirmation code, your ticket is not paid.
    • All payments via PayNYCFines are final. Once you authorize PayNYCFines to facilitate payment for a parking ticket, you will not be able to cancel the transaction and you will not be able to get a refund under any circumstances, including payments through the website or the SMS/texting interface. By submitting payment information to PayNYCFines, you acknowledge that you are the owner, registrant, and/or operator of the vehicle that was ticketed.
    • You are responsible for reviewing all information provided to PayNYCFines before submitting payment. If any errors are made in inputting your information, PayNYCFines assumes no responsibility for any interest, late fee, or other legal penalties that results. If the amount due is different than the amount authorized, then you give PayNYCFines permission to charge you for the full amount due and paid by PayNYCFines. Keep in mind that the amount owed may be different from the initial amount on your ticket because of late fees or other penalties.
    • You agree to allow PayNYCFines to create a unique email and phone for your account when paying tickets. However, based on information received from NYC Dept. of Finance in April 2023, PayNYCFines now uses the phone and email you submitted to us in NYC's payment website to address concerns raised associated with fraudlent trnsactions when using a PayNYCFines created email. This means you will receive two receipts -- one from NYC Dept of Finance and one from PayNYCFines.
    • You agree that PayNYCFines may provide other information, including personally identifying information and payment information, to the necessary government department or its assigns to pay your parking ticket. You agree that in the process of facilitating your ticket payment, PayNYCFines may solve any Captchas we enounter on your behalf. You also acknowledge that PayNYCFines is not a financial institution.

When disputing a ticket through our platform, your credit card will be charged 50% of the current fine amount at the time of your dismmissal. If your ticket dispute is not successful, you will not be charged and you have 30 days to pay the ticket before NYC imposes additional late fees and penalties.
