Direct Debit Policy

Our commitment to you

  • Where you have a service with us that does not include account usage charges, we will not change the amount or frequency of drawing arrangements without your prior approval.
  • Where you have a service with us that does include account usage charges, the amount and frequency of the drawing arrangements will be as per the terms and conditions of your service agreement with us. This may require drawing at various times in the month to cover the usage charges you have incurred.
  • Planet Ozi will not disclose your details except where necessary to our financial institution and for the purposes of conducting direct debits with your financial institution.
  • Planet Ozi will give you at least 14 days notice in writing if there are changes to the terms of the drawing arrangements.
  • For monthly recurring subscription charges, we will draw from your nominated financial institution account normally 14 days after the invoice issue date, this is printed on the invoice as the due date. If the due drawing date is not a business day, we will draw on the business day before or after that date.

Your commitment to us

It is your responsibility to;

  • Ensure your nominated account can accept direct debits.
  • Ensure there are sufficient funds available in the nominated account to meet each drawing.
  • Advise us if the nominated account is transferred or closed, or the account details change.
  • Arrange an alternative payment method acceptable to Planet Ozi if we cancel the drawing arrangements.
  • Ensure that all account holders on the nominated financial institution account sign the Direct Debit Authorisation.

A fee of $10 applies if the financial institution rejects a Direct Debit transaction.

Available payment methods are by bank account direct debit or by credit card. If you wish to change your payment method, please contact our customer service team on 1300 556 085.
