✔ Immediate, verifiable electronic documentation that your payment was successfully submitted
✔ Easy, no-hassle corrections in the event you need to resubmit an application
✔ If you pay by e-check, there is NO extra processing fee

Online payment options include checks and most credit cards. (Discover, American Express, MasterCard, Visa)

 

After you click or tap PAY ONLINE in the section for your appropriate license, fill out the following fields:

  • Trade or Individual Name and Physical Address: Must match the business name and address on your renewal form.

  • Responsible Party Information: The last name and first name of the contact person for any questions about the payment submission.

  • Application Type Information: Select License/Permit/Certificate in the dropdown.

  • Pertinent Number: Input your existing permit number and expiration date.

  • Payment Information: Indicate Electronic Check Payment or Credit Card Payment. Enter the fee amount you are paying. A nominal processing service fee will be additionally charged for credit card payments. There is no service fee for electronic check payments.

  • Click Continue when you are finished. Depending on your payment type selection, you will be directed to a check payment or credit card payment page where you can complete your online payment.

    • If you experience a technical error after you have submitted your check or credit card information, do not try again. A processed payment may take a day or more to appear in your account. Write “ERROR RECEIVED” in the Payment Confirmation Number/Check Number box and submit your application. We will notify you if your payment was not processed.

  • When payment is complete, you will be presented with a payment confirmation number. You will also receive an email receipt that includes your payment confirmation number. Copy your payment confirmation number to the Payment Confirmation Number or Check Number box on the application.

If you do not have access to a credit card or checking account, or if you are not able to utilize the online payment system, paper checks or money orders are accepted. Write the number and date of the check or money order in the box provided on the application form. Make checks and money orders payable to NJ Department of Health. All checks and money orders must be dated and signed. State policy prohibits processing of money orders or checks that do not include signatures and legible dates.
