The Monitor Card Account is an optional account of pre-deposited funds accessed by you for products and services. Funds deposited to the Monitor Card Account shall be applied against amounts debited to your Monitor Card Account for goods and services purchased at points of sale. You understand and agree that the Monitor Card is not a credit card, nor can it be used to obtain cash or cash advances from the account under any circumstances. If your Monitor Card Account balance goes below zero as a result of the system or one of its readers being off-line, you remain responsible for payment of those purchases. Merchandise will be accepted for return according to the refund policy in force where the goods and/or services were purchased. Cash refunds will not be made for returned merchandise that was purchased with the Monitor Card. A credit will be made to your account.


Your card and related accounts are non-transferable; any misuse or illegal transactions can result in privilege suspension and/or possible judicial action. Except as provided below, you are responsible for the usage of your card.


Report immediately any lost or stolen card, or unauthorised card usage to Hamilton Boys’ High School during the business hours of 9am – 3pm, Monday through Friday. Alternatively, you may suspend activity to your Monitor Card Account through the My Monitor website. You are responsible for all usage of the card prior to proper notification to the Monitor Card Office or suspending your card online. A fee will apply for a replacement card.



All prices listed on this site are in New Zealand Dollars.


The prices of the goods and services appearing for sale on this site include New Zealand Goods and Services Tax.



Hamilton Boys’ High School will charge a transaction fee as disclosed on the Payment pages for each online transaction undertaken through this site.



Upon graduation or official withdrawal from the school, the cardholder accounts will be closed and any non-Quota balance over $10 will be refunded to you on request. Hamilton Boys’ High School reserves the right to close any Monitor Card Account that has been inactive for a period of twelve (12) months. Refunds on accounts of over $10 will be made at the full value of the unused balance. Refunds are issued once all debts at Hamilton Boys’ High School are cleared.



You can request a receipt at the time of purchase if the point of sale terminal is equipped to provide a receipt. Some locations including copiers and printing stations are not capable of providing receipts. The remaining balance in your Monitor Account is displayed at every point of sale terminal each time the account is accessed. The cashier, at any location accepting the Monitor Card, may be asked to verify an account balance. Occasionally the account balance is not available at a card reader. During these times, you can check your Monitor Account balances online at the My Monitor web page. Error Resolution Procedures -  If you feel a charge has been transacted on your Monitor Card Account which you did not authorise, you must notify the corresponding Department as soon as the non-authorised transaction is discovered. Include information on the date and amount of the transaction, as well as any other information you feel is necessary to help the staff investigate the claim.



Customer card data is captured using Payment Express Hosted Payment Page – PX Post

The PX Post interface is a third party Hosted Payments Page (HPP) solution provided by Payment Express. The HPP provides a solution for the capturing credit card information securely without exposing the merchant to the sensitive data. This is achieved by allowing the card holder to enter their card details into a page which is hosted by Payment Express rather than the merchant’s own website. The major advantage of this approach is that the merchant does not see, and is not aware of, the card number at any point in the process. Payment Express is registered as a PCI DSS compliant service provider; therefore, a payment page solution hosted by Payment Express meets all PCI DSS requirements.

Security and Infrastructure

Payment Express has a dedicated development and data centre specially designed for payment processing. Payment Express are fully certified and compliant with Visa AIS (Account Information Security) and MasterCard SDP (Site Data Protection) (PCI-DSS) at processor level; using Ernest and Young Risk Management for quarterly scans on systems and full onsite audits, annually.
