Make Payments Simply.
The City of Bessemer now accepts credit and debit card payments through GovPayNet. Payments can be made with a major credit, debit or prepaid debit card.

Authorized cards are MasterCard / VISA / American Express / Discover / Debit

To make a payment, you will need the following:

  • Name of Person for Whom Payment is Being Made
  • Account Number (for utility bills) 
  • Purpose of Payment (for miscellaneous payments) 
  • Phone Number

A processing fee will be charged for use of this payment method. The fee schedule can be found here.

GovPayNet is a privately contracted credit and debit card processor under an agreement with the agency intended to receive payment. If the payment is bail or bail-related, GovPayNet is the merchant of record, providing a remote cash bail processing service. For all other payments, the collecting agency is the merchant. If you have any questions about GovPayNet's role, please discuss them with the contracting agency.
