Welcome to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Court’s (AOPC) PAePay® Bail website. This site allows the public to submit electronic bail payments on Magisterial District Court and Common Pleas Court cases. This site has been approved by the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania and is maintained by the AOPC.

Payments may be made using a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or ATM card. The maximum amount that can be charged to a credit card for electronic bail payments is $20,000 per transaction. A non-refundable service fee of 2.75% will be assessed on each transaction submitted. The ability to pay bail electronically may not be available in all counties or for all docket types. Please click here for details regarding individual county participation.

This website provides an alternative means of paying bail. Unpaid bail balances will not be updated until payments are processed by the court. If you are acting as the defendant’s surety, you must contact the court or prison in which the person is incarcerated in order to complete bail-related documents upon submission of an electronic bail payment. The AOPC makes no guarantees regarding the timeliness of an online payment and its effect on the release of the person from custody.
