One place for all transactions- billing, shop, forms & more

Parents can shop for lunch, buy uniforms, register for sports, fill out permission slips, pay for school trips, participate in fundraisers and so much more with one myKindo (parent interface) login. They can even view multiple students and schools! Simplifying life for caregivers.

Schools can easily manage student billing, registrations, permission forms and set up a uniform, stationery or fundraising shop all on one system with Kindo. You can even customise the myKindo homepage with any key messages for parents. Saving hours of admin time.

Best of all, the constant visibility of payment dues alongside shop items and forms is proven to result in greater payment collection, meaning more funding is available for schools. 

Seamless integration with SMS simplifies admin

Kindo integrates with all major SMS systems to offer a powerful student finance solution that removes the office handling of student payments. No more cash or queues in the office in the first week of term!  Save staff hours of administration time with Kindo.


Using SMS data, schools can simply add payment requests to individuals or groups, excluding any they don’t apply to such as international students. These will appear for payment in myKindo- the caregiver interface.  Kindo then automatically manages these payments as they come in, coding them to the correct entity when paid.

Multiple students and schools can be viewed under one login, simplifying life for caregivers

Rapid Xero integration means no matching & batching

Kindo reduces the reconciliation workload in accounting systems by collating individual bank payments into a large single batch payment that is sent to the school at a frequency of their choosing. There is no need to keep track of hundreds of individual payments!

Our rapid Xero integration takes things one step further than other systems by automatically creating your Xero draft invoice with your own customised ledger codes at the click of a button.  


Don’t spend hours coding multiple individual student deposits in Xero, with Kindo Payables reconciliation takes just minutes! 


Accurate reporting for boards & management

Our simple system puts schools in control of their reporting. View live payment information and extract it quickly, in a way that suits your school and board. No need to collate information from multiple systems, everything you need sits under Kindo. Save hours of administration time.

Complete with school ledger codes, Kindo can instantly report on statistics such as requested amounts, paid amounts, refunds and percentages paid by ledger code and item and so much more. It only takes a minute!

Payment reminders with actionable statements

Kindo Payables allows school staff to easily send out email reminders to families with outstanding balances based on criteria of their choosing.

These email reminders include a bespoke link that when clicked, will log the family straight into their myKindo account to view and pay their outstanding balance. With no need to login, find the payments page or dig out their card or account details, Kindo Payables email reminders are proven to drastically decrease debts and increase funding.

This feature also saves time for both staff and families, meaning a happier school community all round!

I was a little nervous at first, but we’ve already got most of our parents using Kindo. Kindo Payables is easy. You can send out invoice items to an individual class or year and set up groups for particular payments like sports team transport. It has really cut down the fiddly admin side of my work.

Camille Lamond - School Office Administrator

Kindo Payables has been a real win for us. We can easily load specific activities against classes, groups or individuals and at the click of a button, alert parents via email when there’s a new activity to be paid. Kindo also provides complete visibility across payments and non-payments and the ability to incorporate all forms of payments or transactions into one system.
