From registering and paying for your parking in seconds, to extending it without having to return to your vehicle and reminders when it’s about to expire, we know you have more to worry about than parking. The PayByPhone app can be used in over 1,000+ cities worldwide & is now available in 11 languages, making it easier than ever. PayByPhone has helped over 72 million users pay for their parking simply and easily, so they can focus on what matters most to them.

For businesses signed up to PayByPhone Business, the app allows drivers to simply switch between business and personal payment cards on the PayByPhone app when they park, so no time-consuming monthly expense reports or saving receipts. Paying for parking with PayByPhone is more environmentally-friendly than paying with cash: there are fewer vehicles on the road adding to air pollution to collect cash from pay and display machines.

I've only used it once but the number of hoops I had to jump through to pay for a parking spot was unbelievable. Wouldn't let me choose Google pay. Ok fine but wondering why it is listed. I added credit card, wouldn't let me choose it. A phone call required me to change my non-existent pin. So I jumped through those hoops. I then tried to use a card there but kept getting hung up on by the robo voice. Finally got parking paid for but late for my appointment. Beyond frustrated.

When you run low (less than a minute), it won't let you add more time. It also suggests nearby parking instead if bringing up the location you have history with. You have to dive through several menus to get your parking history. Really annoying when I use parking for work and have more important things to do than play around with an app to avoid a ticket.

Very good, quick, easy, always works. I'm always recommending it to others. It's just that good and it's entirely free with no extra or hidden charges. It even reminds you how much time you have left and lets you extend the time from wherever you are. The only thing I have experienced that needs improvement is the map option. I live in San Francisco and a lot of the meters are old and the numbers are faded. Other reviewers have mentioned the same.
