Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What information do I need to provide to purchase online?
A. You will need to provide the following information to purchase online:
  • A credit or debit card with the Discover, MasterCard or Visa logo
  • Your student's eTriton Patron ID food service payments
  • Your email address for confirmation
  • A password which you create at the end of your first purchase

  • Q. What is my student's eTriton Patron ID?
    A. This is the same as their student ID number. It can be located on their Student ID card/lunch card.  Ask your student. If your student does not know, please contact your school. Once you have your student's eTriton Patron ID, it is a good idea to keep it in a safe place. You will need to enter that number each time you make an online payment for that student.We do have family lunch accounts, so you only need one of your student's ID numbers, since the money will go to all Patrons linked to that account.

    Q. Why do I need to enter an email address?
    A. Your email address serves multiple purposes. First, after each completed web store purchase, a confirmation email is sent to the email address you provide. Therefore you should provide a valid email address. Second, the email address you provide is used as your account login. With this login you may view previous purchases, edit your account information, and receive a password reminder. To easily view your purchase history, you should use the same email address for all purchases on this web store.

    Q. What is my Web Store password?
    A. You create a password of your own choosing. During your first online purchase, you will be prompted for your email address and a password you create. This password is not issued by the school. If you are a Returning Customer and you have forgotten your password, select Password Reminder from the menu on the left. If your email address is on file, your password will be emailed to you.

    Q. I have changed my email address. How do I change it on the web store?
    A. Select My Account from the menu at left. Login with your "old" email address and password on file. From the next screen you may edit your email address and/or password.

    Q. How do I pay for multiple items?

    Q. How do I know the payment was accepted?

If you do not receive the confirmation email, it may have been filtered. But your order will immediately be entered in your purchase history under My Account.
