Knight Express Card

St. Francis students are given the option of using their Knight I.D. card to pay for purchases in the cafeteria.


If you opt to use the Knight Card, parents will have to register an account by logging onto 


To set up an account, all you need is:

  • A valid email address

  • A credit card

  • Your son’s student identification number

    • New students will be given this number on Registration Day.  It is the number of their school email.

  • Your son’s first and last name exactly as he was registered on our system

    • If you registered your son as Robert with St. Francis, you cannot use Bob on PayForIt, the system will not find a match.

  • Our District is:  OH - St. Francis (Toledo)

    •  Please note there is another St. Francis in OHIO. Make sure to select the correct school.

  • Payment options are under the “Lunch” tab


Each son in your family can be set up on the same account.  If you decide to put money on your son’s Knight Card account, there is a convenience fee of 3.9% per transaction for Visa/MasterCard.  Typically it will take up to 2 hours for a payment to appear in your son’s account.


Features of the system include:

  • Deposit money at your convenience into your son’s Knight Card account

  • Set email reminders to notify you when your son’s account gets low

  • Set up recurring payments for your son’s Knight Card account

  • Check your son’s Knight Card account balance

  • Your son can use the card in both the Cafeteria and for game tickets

  • View an activity report so you can see what your son has eaten or spent in the previous 30 days.



Until students have their new ID/Knight Card, they can key in their student number in the cafeteria. You should dissuade your son from sharing his number with other students to avoid anyone using it fraudulently.


If you need further assistance, the toll-free number for PayForIt is 1-800-572-6642. Their hours are from 8:30am-7:30pm, Monday through Friday.



Important for Returning Parents:

You do not need to set up a new account every year. Their student number stays the same for the duration of their time at SFS.
