Vehicle Registration Online Renewal

We are pleased to offer our customers who are renewing their registrations the convenience of submitting renewal requests and payments online.  Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, and Discover® credit and debit cards, and electronic checks are accepted for vehicle registration renewal payments. 

How Does This Work?

Our service is only available to Manchester residents who wish to renew their registrations. It is not available for new, first-time, or plate transfer registrations.

Please have the following items handy before continuing:

  • Your vehicle renewal notice letter, which we will mail to you about six weeks prior to your registration's expiration date
  • Your PIN (personal identification number), which will appear on that letter; and
  • A valid email address.

In most cases, your registrations will be processed and mailed back to you within four or five business days of submitting your online payment.

Terms Of Service

By using this service, you confirm that you understand and agree to the following terms of service:

Submitting your request to renew your vehicle registrations is not the same as registering your vehicle. Online submissions do not constitute a contract or requirement for the City to comply with those requests. Until you receive your official registration form and decals, your vehicle is not considered registered.  Unpaid parking tickets, missing or incorrect information, data transmission problems, and other causes may delay or prevent the processing of your registrations.

A service (convenience) fee will be charged to cover the costs of processing online payments. You will have the opportunity to view the service fee prior to confirming your payment.

As of April 15, 2022 credit cards are accepted for payments made online or in person. For credit card transaction, the service fee is either $1.95 or 2.75% of the transaction amount, whichever is greater.

For Electronic check (ACH/EFT) transactions the service fee is $0.95.

In the event of any problems or questions, we will attempt to contact you, but the City is not liable if, for any reason, we are unable to do so or if you do not respond to such communications. It is your responsibility to contact us if you have not received your registrations within 10 days of your online submission, and to comply with State of NH Laws regarding the registering and operation of your vehicles.

General Information For Online Payments and Paperless Billing

What are some of the benefits of receiving my bill electronically?

It is convenient, saves time, reduces errors, bills don’t get misplaced, allows you to receive bills anywhere at any time and it helps the environment by saving trees. You can continue to receive a paper bill but if you elect to go paperless, you can always print out a copy of the invoice if needed.

What are the benefits of paying a bill online?

Paying online with a credit card or electronic check saves time, gives you the flexibility to pay how and when desired, saves money (no more stamps, paper checks or envelopes) and Invoice Cloud will store your information for future use – but only if you choose to store it.

What is Invoice Cloud?

Invoice Cloud is a web-based, electronic invoice presentment and payment company that we have partnered with to provide faster, more convenient billing services to our customers. By automating billing and collections, customers can click and pay online while helping the environment and reducing clutter in their home or workspace. 

What is the relationship between the City of Manchester and Invoice Cloud?

The City of Manchester wanted to make paying bills easier for their customers and offer electronic billing options to our customers.  Invoice Cloud was chosen as a service provider for these services.  All billing and payment data is kept confidential, secure, and will not be sold or used for any purpose other than to complete transactions.


Using the System

How does the system work?

It is very simple. Here are the 3 steps taken by customers:

  1. Customer receives email notification or accesses account via the City's website and clicks on the “Pay On-Line” button.
  2. Customer enters payment information for an express payment or registers to schedule a payment.
  3. Customer receives an email confirmation with their payment amount and payment process date.
Can I use an Apple /Mac to use the service?

Yes, many customers use a Mac, but you must use either Firefox or Internet Explorer (IE) to access the online bill pay service. Safari and Chrome browsers are not currently supported. Customers attempting to use those browsers have experienced issues using the service.

**Important Note** What does 'Register' mean on Invoice Cloud?

On the Invoice Cloud site, 'register' means to sign up on their site in order to go paperless, save payment information, and even add other City of Manchester bills for managing your City-issued bills and invoices. Registration is not required for one time payments.  Register on the Invoice Cloud site does not mean to "register your vehicle", but once your payment has been submitted your vehicle registration will be processed by the City within the next couple of business days.

Do I need to register to pay a bill?

You need to register to receive electronic bills through email but registration is not required for one time payments (Express Pay). One time payments require that you enter your payment information each time you make a payment. By registering your payment methods, you avoid that step and gain access to your payment history. 

Why should I register to pay a bill?

By registering, you have access to all of your invoices regardless of type and all of the features of the payment portal. These include the ability to view all current invoices at same time, schedule  payments for a specific dates, see previous invoices and payment dates, update your profile information, go paperless (if bill type allows) and sign up for Auto-Pay. You also avoid having to enter your payment information each time you pay a bill. 

How Do I Register?

Registering is easy and can be done when you make your first payment. There are two ways you can make a payment.

When you receive an email notification that your bill is ready to paid, simply click on the “View Invoice or Pay Now” button. You will be directed to your biller’s “Pay and/or View Bills Online” site, powered by Invoice Cloud. Once there, you will be given the opportunity to register or make an express payment. If you choose to register, you be asked to provide a password and accept the terms and conditions to use the system. The payment information you enter in your profile will then be securely encrypted and saved for your next visit.

How do I find my account number to login?

There are several ways to locate your account number and access code.

If you have a previous email notification, the account number is listed on the right hand side. By clicking on “View Invoice or Pay Now”, you will automatically be sent to the login page where that information will be placed in the login area for you. You may refer to your vehicle registration or renewal notice mailed to you by the Tax Collector's Office.

I forgot my Password, how do I find it?

You should click on “Forgotten Password?” at the bottom of the login screen. You will need your account number and email address to retrieve your password. If you’re unable to locate this information, you may call the biller and after verifying your identity, the biller can provide you with the information.

Can more than one person pay bills online for the same account?

There are two ways that payment responsibilities can be shared. If the other payer is part of your household, you may choose to share your login information with that individual. In a situation where personal financial data is not shared, you may forward your email notification to the individual, who will then click on the “View or Pay Now” button and elect to make an express pay payment. They will need to enter their name, email address, address and payment information. They will receive the payment confirmation. You can verify their payment by viewing the invoices in your account.

What forms of payment can I use?

You can pay by credit or debit card or you may issue an electronic check from your bank account (checking or savings). Please check your biller’s website for the credit and debit cards that are eligible.

What is a service or convenience fee?

This fee is charged by Invoice Cloud and is a non-refundable fee added to cover various administrative costs associated with billing and accepting payment.  The City of Manchester does not receive any portion of the service (convenience) fee.

If I don’t have email can I still process an electronic payment?

To complete the online payment process yourself, you will need an email address so that the system can deliver your payment confirmation. If you do not have an email address, you can obtain a free email account from any of the following services: yahoo.com, hotmail.com, or gmail.com. 

What are the costs for paying online?

While there are no signup costs or subscription fees, each payment does incur a service (convenience) fee.  You will be informed of this fee prior to finalizing your payment.  There are also fees imposed by Invoice Cloud for returned payments, and your bank may charge you a fee based on the bank's fee schedule.

How should I enter my credit card information?

The information you enter on the Payment screen must be exactly the same as it appears on your credit card. This information collected will be used to authorize your payment. 

How will I know that my payment has been accepted?

After you submit your payment, you will see a payment confirmation screen. It will contain your payment confirmation message. It will show an approved number for credit cards or a processed number for electronic check. You will also receive a confirmation email after your transaction is submitted. The email will include your account number, invoice number, amount paid, and confirmation message. 

Can I use more than one payment method per transaction?

No, we do not accept partial payments for vehicle registration renewals.

When paying by electronic check (ACH transfer), how does my payment appear on my bank statement?

There will be one entry on your bank statement for the bill amount.

How long does it take for a credit card transaction to process if I pay online?

Credit card transactions typically take 48 hours to settle.  An authorization is issued immediately; however, it takes 48 hours for the money to be moved.

How long does it take for an EFT (electronic funds transfer) transaction to process if I pay online?

EFT transactions typically take 48 – 72 hours to settle.    

Do I need to notify my bank or change bank accounts?

No, your current bank account (checking or savings) will work fine. So many payments are made electronically now that banks are already prepared for online payments. However, if you have arranged through your bank to automatically pay your bill, you need to contact your bank and discontinue the automated payment, otherwise you may pay your bill twice.

What information do I need to make a payment?

The only information you need to have available to complete an express payment transaction is your vehicle renewal notice, your email address, and your bank account or credit card information.

Can I use a debit card to pay my bill(s)?

Yes, although technically your debit card will be processed like a credit card and you will not be asked to enter a pin number. 

Will I have online access to my account?

Registered users will have 24/7 access to their Invoice Cloud account for invoice review and payment, payment history and customer service requests.

How long will my payment history be maintained?

18 months is the standard retention period.

Will I be able to print a copy of my notice?

Yes, each invoice is presented in PDF and HTML format. Electronic storage is recommended because it saves paper and has a beneficial impact on our environment.

How do I change my account information?

If you are a registered user, simply log into your account and change any of your personal information under My Profile.

Can I schedule payments?

Sorry, we do not offer this feature.


Getting Help

Who do I contact with questions or if I'm having trouble with this process?

If you are unable to find the information you need in your online payment history or open invoices, please call the Tax Collector's Office at 603-624-6575, or contact us online.

I accidentally deleted my current email notification, what should I do?

If you are a registered user on Invoice Cloud, you can login at www.invoicecloud.com/manchesternh and view your bill there.  Or you can contact the Tax Collector's Office and request that the email be re-sent.

What if this website is down or for some reason I am unable to use this site? 

If the website is inoperable, please call the Tax Collector's Office at 603-624-6575.


Is my information secure?

Invoice Cloud uses the highest standards in Internet security. Account information displayed within the customer and biller portals is truncated to protect confidential data. Any information retained is not shared with third parties. 

Is my credit card and checking account information safe when I pay online?

Absolutely. Invoice Cloud will safely store all of your financial information using Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliant systems. This includes truncating (abbreviating) account numbers so that even City staff cannot see your complete account information.

What is PCI Compliance and why is it so important?

PCI stands for Payment Card Industry and compliance with the industry standards is a requirement for those that accept the major credit cards and for software providers who have applications which involve the transmission and/or storage of credit card information.   

Who has access to my account on Invoice Cloud?

You, authorized staff at the City of Manchester, and Invoice Cloud.   None of these people will be able to view your financial information as all check routing numbers and credit card numbers are truncated, so you never have to worry about security.  As a security precaution, we don’t even show your full financial information back to you.
