You Served Your Time, and JPay Served Its Need
While you were in jail, your family or significant other opened a JPay account to securely send you money for the things you might need while incarcerated. Things like;
- Post bond
- Fund commissary accounts
- Pay for video visits
As these services became more in demand, JPay widened its offerings to include;
- Music players and downloadable MP3 songs
- JPay tablets for furthering education
- Ways to process payments for parole services
In a 2014 article from CNBC, JPay founder and CEO Ryan Shapiro stated that JPay was the go-to app provider for the prison systems, and each JPay suite of services was tailored to the needs of each prison system it served.
Your JPay account served its need while you served your time, and now you no longer need a JPay account. So, ?
Deleting Your JPay Account
Before you attempt to delete your JPay account, sit down with the family member or loved one that orchestrated your JPay account on the outside. You need to list everything that the JPay account was used for and the credit or debit cards used to link financial services to the JPay account.
For instance, you can delete the JPay app from your phone or computer, but if you have any recurring payments set up through any third-party those payments need to be canceled as well. If you fail to delete each payment through the proper channels, you will still be billed for those payments even though they aren't going to the JPay account.
JPay is an app, so deleting it from your phone or computer is the same as deleting any other app you have installed. Just note that if you have installed JPay on multiple devices, each device will need to be deleted from the JPay app.
Don't expect a lot of information regarding your JPay account deletion on their website. There is no mention of the word 'Delete' anywhere on the website.
Their "Help" page is just a menu of all the different services provided by JPay and the fees associated with the services.
But, if you scroll down to the bottom of the "Help" page, there is a phone number you can call to assist you with your JPay account. Just be aware that even your phone call to 1-800-574-JPAY (5729) for customer service assistance could carry with it a hefty fee as all transactions completed through a 'live agent' are subject to a higher fee.
Alternative Ways to Delete Your Account
The last thing you want to do in deleting your account is to remember your old login details. However, if you want to take that path, here are some things you may do:
|Password Manager||You’re lucky if you have used a password manager for a long time. Open your password manager and locate the account you want to delete. It’s too easy to log back into the account and delete it.|
|Access the email you have used to register for the account. Check if you have saved a copy of your login details to your inbox folder.|
|Recovering Passwords||Access the website where you want to delete your account. Click on “Forgot Password?” and follow the prompts. Hope that the mobile number or email address you are using now is the same as what is registered on your account.|
If you don’t want to do the above-stated processes, let DoNotPay do the work for you.
