What is Pay by App in the Wilson Parking App?
Pay by App is the smart and easy way for you to pay for your parking. Access the best rates, avoid lining up at payment machines, fumbling with coins or underestimating your stay ever again!
The Wilson Parking App now supports the payment of parking sessions with your phone at our Pay & Display and Pay by Plate car parks. These car parks are easily identified when you view the car park details in the app with the inclusion of a "Pay with your phone" rate section and a button to start your parking session.
Use your phone's GPS, or scan the QR code on site with your phone camera to access the car park through the app, set your time and pay for your parking. Need to stay longer? No problem, you can easily extend through the app, without having to rush back to the car park! Get more info here

When you pay by app with the Wilson Parking App, we require that you select your total parking duration or pick one of our fixed time blocks.
Once you start your parking session, the app will start to countdown. We allow you to set up a notification that will provide you with convenient reminders of when your parking session is due to end. We also allow you the option to add additional time if you need to park longer.
What if I'm not sure how long I will need to park?
Within the Wilson Parking App, we've introduced an 'Add more time' feature for "Pay with your phone" parking so that you no longer need to overestimate the duration of your stay.

The easiest way to ensure you are in the correct car park is to make sure your location services are turned on when using the Wilson Parking App. We will use the geocoordinates of the car park location to warn you if we don't think you're located in the correct car park.
Our car parks will also have clear signs with the name of the car park displayed on the rate boards and QR codes that can be scanned to open the app to the correct location.
How do I know I'm in the correct Zone of the car park?
Some of our car parks may have zones with different prices available within the Wilson Parking App. Please ensure that you review the car park signs to ensure the zone you are parked in matches the zone displayed in the app.
Can I run multiple parking sessions at the same time?
Yes, you can have multiple parking sessions running at the same time. This feature can be used to pay for parking sessions for friends or family at the same or different car parks.

Please ensure that the correct vehicle registration is used for each session.
