How do I save with NSLS Pay?

NSLS Pay always uses a digital gift card to pay. Each time you enter a total, it will purchase a gift card for that exact amount so you can give it to the cashier as payment in full. However, that gift card costs you less than its face value. You will see a charge to your payment account from NSLS Pay for less than the retail total. That is how you save every time with NSLS Pay.

How do I use NSLS Pay at checkout?

When you have a successful payment, the app will give you instructions for how to redeem your discounted gift card. It will display either a QR code, barcode, or a number for you to use to redeem your gift card. Retailers generally use QR codes or barcodes that you simply scan at checkout. Restaurants, you generally ask your server for a pen and write the code on the guest check. In either case, simply tell the staff that you are paying with a digital gift card and they should be able to proceed from there.

How do I use NSLS Pay online?



Simply buy a gift card with your desired value.

Why do I have to verify my device?

We take your security seriously. To protect your account from unauthorized access, we require that any new devices be confirmed by you first. This way if someone were to ever get your username and password, they would not be able to access your account with this information alone. This is called "2-Factor Authentication".

Using a new device triggers a requirement to verify that you are the individual accessing the account. Once you've registered your device once, you will never need to verify that specific device again.
