Your questions answered

Do you have a question about setting up an Ezypay account? We’re here to help.
Browse through the most common FAQ below or contact us directly to ask your own question.

Can direct debits be set up as per the parents' preference (i.e. collect weekly, fortnightly or monthly)?

 

Yes, you have the flexibility to alter payment plans to meet your parents' preferences. Easily set up multiple payment plans with direct debit instructions based on term, quantity or usage.

Are there transaction fees for direct debit and credit cards?

 

Yes, there are fees for both direct debit and credit card transactions. Fees can be paid by either the childcare centre or parent.

Is there a fee to load children into Ezypay?

 

Yes, there is a once-off load fee per child that can be charged to either the parent or childcare centre.

What are the sign up cost/monthly fees?

 

Nothing! Opening an account with Ezypay is completely free and there are no monthly or annual fees on the account. The only fees included are the child load fee when a parent signs up to your childcare centre (once-off fee), transaction fee and failed payment fee.

Can a parent sign themselves up to a payment plan?

 

Parents can sign up to your payment plans online. A URL link is provided for each payment plan which you can share with parents through email/ website etc.

How quickly will I receive the money after it has been collected from my parents?

 

This depends on your chosen distribution cycle (i.e. weekly or monthly). Weekly distributions are collected from Monday to Friday and funds are transferred into your business account on the following Wednesday.

If you prefer to have collected funds transferred on a monthly basis, monthly distributions collected throughout the month will be transferred into your account after 3 business days the following month. 

Is there a minimum amount of transactions that I have to meet each month?

 

No. There is no minimum transactional amount or value that your childcare centre must reach each month.

Will the childcare centre or its parents be contracted to Ezypay for a minimum term?

 

Your parents will not have a contract or minimum term commitment to Ezypay. However, your childcare centre will be contracted to a defined term as per the applicable agreement.

Will a parent be notified if their payment fails?

 

Yes, when a payment has failed Ezypay will notify your parents of this and provide 2 payment recovery options to resolve the payment issue. Parents can either pay online via the Ezypay online payment portal or by calling our customer service team.

What happens if a parent does not pay after their initial payment has failed?

 

Ezypay offers an auto ‘rebill’ option, where we will attempt to collect the payment again from the parent. The rebill option can be customised according to your childcare centre's needs. For each failed payment, you also have the options to change the amount to be collected, change the rebill date, write off, or add the outstanding failed amount to the next payment to be collected.

Can a parent update their payment details online?

 

Parents can get in touch with your childcare centre directly to update their payment details. They are only able to update their payment details and pay any outstanding amount on the Ezypay Online Payment Portal in the case of a failed payment. Once the payment is rectified, they can opt to save the new payment details for the next debit collection.

Does Ezypay charge a failed payment fee? (i.e. due to insufficient funds or when the credit card has been overcharged etc.)

 

Yes. There is a failed payment fee that is charged for every payment that fails. This charge applies to payments that have failed due to insufficient funds, invalid account details, cancelled cards and blocks that have been put on the account.

Is customer information secure?

 

Yes! We are PCI compliant – the highest payment security accreditation. Our processes ensure that all sensitive business and customer details, billing, payments and card processing have been handled at the highest level of data security.

What are your customer support hours?

 

Ezypay customer service is available from 7am to 7pm on Monday to Friday (GMT+10).
