  • On the Approve Payments page, check the Box next to each official you need to pay or select the Box next to the "Pay (0)" button to select all officials. 
    • If an official has a yellow caution symbol next to their payment, this means they do not have an ArbiterPay account. See the No ArbiterPay Account section below for further details.

  • Double check that the correct amounts to pay the official(s) are in the total column.
    • To change the payment amount for the official, click on the three black dots on the far-right side. Three boxes for Game Fee, Travel Fee, and Per Diem will appear for you to enter the appropriate amount. After you enter or change the amount, the total will automatically update.
  • Enter your Security Key and ensure the correct ArbiterPay account number is listed. If this is your first time making payments, you will need to enter your school's or organization's TIN (Tax Identification Number) as well.
    • Your school's or organization's TIN (Tax Identification Number) is required to pay officials. This ensures we are more accurate with payment transactions.
  • To submit payment, click the Pay (#) button. The number in the parenthesis on the Pay button indicates how many payments you've selected. The total will be deducted from the ArbiterPay available balance and the officials that were selected will disappear from the Unpaid list.

No ArbiterPay Account
If an official has the yellow caution symbol User-added image on the right side, hover your mouse over the icon and you will see a message that says "No ArbiterPay Account." This means either the official has no ArbiterPay account and needs to register for an account on (See the article How Do I Register For An ArbiterPay Account), or they have an ArbiterPay account registered, but need to link their ArbiterPay account with their ArbiterSports account (See the article Linking ArbiterPay with ArbiterSports).

You can send an automated email to the officials by following these steps:
  1. Click on the No AP Account filter from the left side  menu.
  2. Check the Box next to each official to email or select the Box next to the Email button to select all officials.
  3. Click on the Email button.
