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.

Direct Bank Transfer (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 we now recommend TransferWise for direct transfers. They have a fair exchange rate with no hidden fees and you can see the small transfer fee up front.
You can send money to and from these currencies (we only accept payments in $AUD)
We do not charge a processing fee but you will pay a small up front fee to TransferWise.
