Frequently asked questions

Want to know more?

 

1

What happens if I miss or can’t make my instalment plan payments?

There’s no obligation to make your monthly Easy Instalments payment, but you’ll need to pay the minimum monthly payment for your credit card (found on your statement) to avoid a late payment fee.

2

What if I already have repeating payments set up?

Any repeating or scheduled payments you have won’t change. If you want, you can update your payments to include your instalments.

3

Will a plan affect my interest free days on purchases?

To keep any interest free days on purchases, you’ll need to pay your monthly instalment amount (including any that are outstanding), plus any statement balance or balance transfer amount not on an Easy Instalments plan, by your due date.

4

Why can’t I see a transaction in my list of eligible transactions?

Not all transactions are eligible – things like balance transfers, cash advances and gambling transactions can’t be put on a plan.

If you’ve recently made a purchase, it might still be marked as ‘authorisation only’, so it’s best to check back in once the transaction has processed.

5

How will you apply payments to my credit card?

When you apply for an Easy Instalments plan, you’re requesting we apply your credit card payments first towards your monthly instalment amount (including any that are outstanding). This means any other amounts that attract a higher interest rate (like a cash advance and any purchase not on a plan) may be repaid later, which could result in you paying higher interest charges.

Things you should know

Lending criteria, fees and charges apply. Terms and conditions apply and are available on request. Available on eligible purchases between $500 and $10,000. When you apply for an Easy Instalments plan, you are requesting an amendment to your allocation of payments in accordance with clause 6. of the Easy Instalments Terms and Conditions. To apply payments in this order may mean that other balances that attract a higher interest rate may be repaid later which may result in you paying higher interest charges.
