The easy way to send money

JPay makes sure that the money transfer process is as seamless as possible, both for you and for your inmate. Whether you are funding a commissary or 'spendable' inmate trust account or a dedicated purpose account, your inmate will be able to access that money quickly. Recurring payments are available, and you can send money to multiple inmates where permitted.

JPay also provides a quick and easy way to send money using a money order. For many facilities and agencies, you can send a money order directly to the JPay Money Order Lockbox, where it will be processed electronically. Learn more about the JPay Money Order Lockbox here.
