Before contacting our support team, please check our FAQs to see if your inquiry has been addressed.

Are you using a standard credit/debit card or a prepaid card?

Prepaid:

If you’re using a prepaid card, then you must register an address with the card company before you use the card to make a deposit on our website. Please call the number on the back of your card to register your address with your card company. Once you’ve done this, you should be able to proceed with making a deposit on our website.

There are also limits on how often a card can be used to deposit and how much can be deposited within a certain period of time. If you are getting a message that says “Your deposit has been denied due to suspicious credit card activity”, it is because the daily or weekly limit has been reached. See below for those limits:

  • Maximum of $300.00 per deposit is allowed
  • Maximum of 3 transactions over 7 seven days

 

If you are having an issue other than those listed above, you will need to email our credit card processor directly since they are the only ones who can see the reason that a transaction is not going through. Their email address is: [email protected]

Please allow 1 to 2 business days (Monday through Friday) for a response from our credit card processor. Please make sure to check your “spam” or “junk” email folder in case your email provider sends the email there.

Standard Credit or Debit Card:

The address entered into our website must match with the address that is on file with your card company. If it doesn’t match, the transaction will be declined. Please make sure that you have entered all other required information correctly (card number, the CVV security code from the back of your card, and your email address). You must also check the box at the bottom of the page to verify that you are the authorized user for the card.

No. We cannot give out any information about an inmate’s account balance or account activity. We can verify that your deposit has been posted to an inmate’s account if you have the task number for the deposit.

There are weekly limits on how often a card can be used to deposit and how much can be deposited within a certain period of time. If you are getting a message that says “Your deposit has been denied due to suspicious credit card activity”, it is because the daily or weekly limit has been reached. See below for those limits:

Please click the button that says “Deposit Inmate Funds,” and follow the instructions to make the deposit.

Twice a year we offer a seasonal special bag program in which friends and family can order items and have them shipped to the facility to be given to their loved one. The Summer Bag program runs for a couple of months during the summer season, and the Holiday Bag program runs for a couple of months in the winter season.

  • If the program is currently running, you can click on “Order a Special Bag” to place an order.
  • If you get a message that says “Ordering Suspended”, that means that the gift bag program is not being offered at that time. Inmates can still place commissary orders for themselves from within the facility on a weekly basis while the special bag program is not available (as long as they have funds available on their accounts). To deposit funds to an inmate’s account, you can click the button that says “Deposit Inmate Funds”. Once the inmate has funds available on his or her account for personal use, they will be able to use the funds to place a commissary order.
