RapidPay (which comprises the service RapidPay and the websites www.rapidpay.com.au and www.rapidpaylegal.com.au) is operated by Rapid Financial Services Solutions Pty Limited ABN 25 603 888 179.

Your access to RapidPay (“RapidPay”, “Services”, “we” or “us”) is subject to these terms of use, the RapidPay Privacy Policy, notices, disclaimers and any other terms and conditions. If you use any of the services contained within RapidPay for which additional or alternative terms and conditions are referred, then you are also subject to these additional or alternative terms, all of which are collectively the RapidPay Terms of Use ("Terms of Use"). By accessing, viewing or otherwise using RapidPay, you agree to be subject to these Terms of Use.

RapidPay may, in its reasonable discretion and from time to time, vary or modify the Terms of Use without notice. Any subsequent access, viewing or otherwise using RapidPay will constitute an acceptance of the variations or modifications. These Terms of Use and your access to RapidPay may be terminated at any time without notice by RapidPay, acting reasonably.

1. Representations

By using RapidPay you acknowledge that you:

  • Have read and understood the Terms of Use;
  • (In relation to RapidPay) understand that all fees, charges and applicable taxes for your payments will be displayed prior to each payment being confirmed by you. The amount payable plus the applicable fee (as at the date of payment) will be debited from your nominated credit card as a single amount. For example, a payment of $100.00 plus a surcharge fee of $2.50 will result in a debit to your nominated credit card of $102.50.

2. Refund Policy

  • Transaction Amount
    You must contact your Biller (the organisation to whom you are making the payment to) directly for a refund or reversal. Your Biller has absolute authority to refund your transaction. Your Biller is the organisation who has issued you with your RapidPay Reference Number.
  • Transaction Fees and Surcharges
    Transaction fees and surcharges that are charged to your credit card for facilitating a RapidPay transaction are non-refundable as this is a cost incurred by RapidPay for processing the transaction. Transaction fees and surcharges are collected through RapidPay. The Biller to whom you are making your payment has elected to pass these fees and surcharges on to you.

Where you believe any transaction fee or surcharge has been charged in error you should request a refund by either:

  • Writing to RapidPay, GPO Box 3957, Sydney NSW 2001; or
  • Emailing support@rapidpay.com.au, and include a full explanation of your situation. RapidPay will generally reply within five (5) Business Days.

All requests for refunds must be made within 30 days of the original transaction being processed.

3. Timing of Payments

For credit card payments, the Business Day cut-off times are 5.30pm AEDT for MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Payments will generally be received by your biller at the conclusion of three business days.
