PayIt is a Kansas City, Missouri start-up company focused on creating innovative e-Government solutions and technology. Co-founded by John Thomson and COO Mike Plunkett, the PayIt service offers city, county, state and federal government agencies a personalized platform on which citizens can create a profile to simplify payments and interaction.
In 2016, PayIt landed a $4.5 million Series A round investment to accelerate development. The round was led by New York City-based Advantage Capital Partners, and followed by Weatherford Partners, Royal Street Ventures, the Missouri Technology Corporation and Five Elms Capital.
PayIt has grown from working with DMVs to streamlining services for other government agencies, including those that manage permits, taxes, licenses, citations and more. PayIt provides its platform free to government agencies upfront. The company takes a small cut of the agency’s transaction fees, reducing its annual costs.
As the company continues to grow, they are committed to growing high-paying jobs locally in Kansas City. They currently employ more than 20 people and plan to continue adding skilled team members with a shared passion for bringing the power of mobile technology to the public sector.
