An online method of paying court fees using credit and debit cards is being called a success by court administrators who credit it with improving efficiency and contributing to higher collection levels.
According to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC), any traffic tickets, court-ordered fines, costs, and restitution issued anywhere in Pa. can now be paid using the online E-Pay system. The system was expanded from Common Pleas courts to all magisterial courts, phased in between April 2010 and December 2011.
