How to make repaymentsShow more
As a Buyer’s Edge customer, you’ll receive a monthly statement if you have activity on your account.
Each statement provides an outline of the transactions made over the last month and the minimum payment required. The minimum monthly payment on Buyer’s Edge is 4% of the total outstanding balance, or $30, whichever is greater (Plus any overdue payments, over limit amounts and fees).
With Buyer’s Edge, it's easy to make payments when you need to. Choose the method that suits you best: direct debit, BPAY®, through the online service centre, by mail or in person.
The direct debit facility helps to ensure you never miss a payment by setting up automatic monthly payments to your Buyer’s Edge account from your savings or cheque account. You can call us on 1300 361 152 to set up your Direct Debit over the phone or download a Direct Debit Request form here.
This service is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Check with your bank about the BPAY® methods available to you. Check your monthly statement for all the information you need:
