Payment Methods and Fees
Currently we have four payment methods. Please be aware that there are processing fees which vary for each payment method.
The processing fees vary with the size of the payment
PayPal is the most flexible method for those who are overseas or who do not have credit cards but has the highest fees (aprox 3.6%). You can sign up for a new PayPal account here
For the $540 RPL payment the PayPal processing fee is $20.
Pin Payments accepts credit and debit cards with a Mastercard or Visa logo as well as American Express. They have lower charges for Australian Cards (from 1.4%-1.75%).
The Pin Payments processing fee (since 1 November 2018) for the $540 RPL is $12.
Please note Pin Payments card processing fees have changed and in order to recover costs the processing fee for $540 RPL increased to $12 from 1 November 2018.
PIN Payments is a secure on-line payment gateway based in Australia and is our preferred method of payment for Australian cards. It accepts both local and international Mastercard and Visa credit cards and debit cards. We do not store any credit card information on this website.
Stripe Online Payments

Stripe payments is an alternative secure on-line payment gateway which we are recommending for international cards. It accepts both local and international Mastercard, Visa and American Express credit cards and debit cards. We do not store any credit card information on this website.
Direct Bank Transfer
(Recommended for Australian Banks only)
We do not charge a processing fee for direct bank transfers and there are usually no bank fees when using internet banking for bank to bank transfer within Australia.
Check about bank fees with your bank first!
For overseas applicants direct bank transfers from overseas banks may have high fees which you will need to pay to your bank. We do not accept foreign currency transfers. After international transfer bank and exchange fees you may fall short of paying the application fee.
If you are from overseas and don’t have a credit or debit card we recommend using PayPal connected to your bank account.
