Traffic tickets and court fees can now be paid by CC

WEST PALM BEACH — Clerk & Comptroller Sharon R. Bock’s office is now accepting credit card payments over the phone for those with traffic tickets and criminal court fines or fees. The service is designed to make it easier for customers to meet their court-ordered financial obligations.

The Clerk’s office has contracted with nCourt, an independent payment processing company, to accept phone payments from customers who wish to pay by credit card.

To use the service, customers call the Clerk’s customer call center at 561-355-2994 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. A Clerk employee will verify the amount owed before seamlessly transferring the caller to a Court representative to complete the credit card transaction. A 6 percent service charge from the Court is added to the payment amount for each credit card transaction.

Before the launch of this new service, customers with criminal fines, fees or payment plans were required to make payments either by mail or in person. This service gives them a more convenient way to comply with their court obligations.
