GovPayNet is an electronic payment processing company that works with government agencies. They allow for debit and credit card payments to be made using their system. GovPayNet was founded in 1997 by a former sheriff. Before 1997, bail payments were done on a cash only system. GovPayNet gave these agencies a way to pay using a credit card. This expanded to allow credit or debit payments for things such as probation fines, child support, traffic and criminal fines, etc.
It was recently announced that Securus Technologies has acquired GovPayNet and Securus CEO and President Robert Pickens could not be more excited. He is impressed with the experience that GovPayNet brings to the table and sees the merger in only a positive way.
