Tips to help you make your credit card repayments on time

It’s important to make your repayments on time so you avoid any late payment fees. If you’re worried about making your credit card repayments on time, or need help getting on top of your current balance, we’ve got a few tools that could help.

Quick tips

Check the date

As soon as you get your statement, check the due date.

Pay your balance

Try and pay off your entire balance to avoid purchase interest.

Make it automatic

Consider setting up a direct debit for at least your minimum repayment amount each month.

Set up Easy Alerts

Set up Easy Alerts and payment reminders if you haven't already.

Easy Alerts

If you set up Easy Alerts on our app, we’ll send a push notification to your phone to keep you in the loop with your account activity, including your credit card. You’ll be able to get a notification when your minimum repayment’s due, which could help you remember to make your payments on time.

In the app, all you need to do is switch Easy Alerts on in the main menu and choose the notifications you want to get. Find out more about Easy Alerts.

Credit card payment reminders

Think of it like an email notification. Whenever a new eStatement is available, we'll send you an email to let you know. You can then view your statement and get ready to make your payment.
