Purchase of Vouchers

All prices are in Australian Dollars and inclusive of GST (if applicable), unless otherwise indicated.

All payments must be received by us before a Voucher is issued.

Description of Vouchers may be subject to change or correction at any time without notice.  Although we seek to ensure information is correct, we make no representation or warranty as to information being accurate or complete.  If we discover an error, we will try to notify you as soon as possible and allow you to cancel your order and obtain a refund if desired.

By submitting an order to purchase a Voucher, you warrant that:

  1. you are capable of entering into a legally binding contract with us (being the terms of this Agreement);
  2. you are authorised and able to make payment via the method you have chosen;
  3. the information you have provided is correct; and
  4. your purchase is not made for the purpose of commercial resale unless permission from us is received.

A contract for purchase is only formed once we have accepted an order by issuing a receipt or Voucher code.

Once purchased, a Voucher will be delivered electronically to the email address or mobile number of the person nominated by the Voucher purchaser to be the Voucher holder.  We do not ship Vouchers to any physical address.

It is the responsibility of the Voucher purchaser to provide us with the correct email address or mobile number of the intended recipient. Bill Fairies™ will not be held responsible for any lost, missing, mis-sent or delayed orders where incorrect or incomplete email addresses or mobile phone numbers have been provided.  Furthermore, we will not be liable or responsible for any loss suffered as a result of a Voucher or expiry reminder via email or sms being blocked by spam filters or firewalls by the recipient’s service provider.

Vouchers are non-transferable, however Voucher Holders can nominate any bill provider they wish (provided it is an eligible provider acceptable to Bill Fairies™) for which to apply their Voucher to pay a Bill.  Bill Fairies™ cannot guarantee that the recipient of a Voucher will:

  1. be the person(s) that ultimately redeems the Voucher; or
  2. will use the Voucher to pay for any particular Bill (if at all).

Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash under any circumstances.

Vouchers will expire if not used by the expiration date, please see the Expiration of Vouchers section in relation to expiration of Vouchers.

 

Using a Voucher

The holder of a valid, unexpired Voucher may pay a Bill by doing the following:

  1. Follow the link received via email or SMS to redeem the voucher and register as a user;
  2. click into the “Pay A Bill” page then following the directions to enter the required details relating to the payment and the amount that he or she wishes to apply to the Bill;
  3. provided that valid BPAY details are received by Bill Fairies™, the directions will be processed by Bill Fairies™ within 2 Business Days;
  4. once processed, a confirmation email/sms will be sent to the Voucher Holder confirming payment and the amount held in that user’s voucher will be reduced by the amount used to pay the Bill.

A confirmation of receipt of payment from BPAY containing a receipt number is sufficient evidence that a Payment Direction has been successfully processed by Bill Fairies™.  A copy of the BPAY receipt number will be sent via email or sms to the Voucher Holder for his or her records.

By using any service on our Website, you warrant that:

  1. you are capable of entering into a legally binding contract with us (being the terms of this Agreement), which is made each time you issue a Payment Direction to us;
  2. you are authorised to redeem the Voucher and make the Payment Direction; and
  3. the information you have provided is correct.

Bill Fairies™ is not responsible for any loss, damages, delays, fees (including late fees) or cancellation of Bill related services that may be incurred due to incorrect or incomplete details submitted in a Payment Direction and which are processed by Bill Fairies™.  Once a Payment Direction is submitted, the process cannot be reversed or cancelled.  Voucher Holders should carefully check details he or she enters in a Payment Direction.

Bill Fairies™ does not guarantee that all Bills will be eligible for processing.  The following kinds of Bills will not be processed:

  1. if the Bill does not have BPAY facilities;
  2. if the Bill is of a kind not currently serviced by Bill Fairies™;
  3. for any other reason at the absolute discretion of Bill Fairies™.

If any of the above circumstances apply, Vouchers will not be applied towards payment of the relevant Bill.

Vouchers may only be used to pay a Bill on the Website pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

Vouchers are not redeemable for cash under any circumstances.

Vouchers will expire if not used by the expiration date, please see the Expiration of Vouchers section in relation to expiration of Vouchers.

 

BPAY and Bill Providers

Bill Fairies™ is not affiliated with BPAY or any Bill provider nor is it a provider of Bill services.  Bill Fairies™ has no responsibility for any services provided or not provided by BPAY, the Bill provider or any other party.

Bill Fairies™ does not control the business operations of BPAY or any Bill provider.  Bill Fairies™ makes no warranty or representation regarding the standard of any Bill service to be provided.

Bill Fairies™ does not control the processing of payments by BPAY or Bill providers.  If a payment pursuant to a Payment Direction is rejected for any reason and the money is returned to Bill Fairies™, the Voucher Holder will be notified of the issue and the refunded amount will be returned to the Voucher total.

No refund will be issued if Bill Fairies™ correctly processes a Payment Direction submitted by a Voucher Holder but an error occurs with either BPAY and/or the Bill provider such that the payment is not processed correctly or in a timely manner by either BPAY and/or the Bill service.

Bill Fairies™ is not responsible for any fees or costs that may be charged by a Bill provider when a Bill is paid.  For example, some Bill providers may charge a processing fee for accounts paid using BPAY, or a late payment fee for outstanding accounts.  Such fees may be deducted by a Bill Provider after receiving a payment pursuant to a Payment Direction.  Users should check with their Bill providers as to what fees may be payable, as it could mean that the amount applied towards a payment of a Bill is less than expected if some of the amount is first deducted by the Bill provider to pay for fees.

 

Payment and Service Fees

Bill Fairies™ may charge a payment fee to recover the costs it incurs for card payments and BPAY, Payment fees vary dependent on the payment method chosen:

Visa card or Mastercard: 1.00%

American Express: 3.025%

+

A flat fee of 3% + GST

Bill Fairies™ will charge this flat rate service fee on all Vouchers. This fee is only payable upon purchase of a Voucher and will not apply when redeeming a Voucher or when making a Payment Direction.

All fees will be clearly displayed to purchasers of Vouchers at the time of purchase.

Transfer of Vouchers, Replacement of Vouchers

All valid Vouchers are non-transferable however a Voucher holder can choose to pay anyone’s bill with the Voucher funds.

If a Voucher code is received and subsequently lost, the voucher holder may be eligible to have a replacement Voucher link emailed or sent via sms to them, provided that:

  1. the Voucher is valid, has not yet expired (calculated from the date that the initial Voucher was purchased); and
  2. proof of purchase is provided, either an order or Voucher number, purchaser’s name and purchaser’s email address/mobile number to which the initial Voucher was sent or the alternate information provided when the Voucher holder registered with Bill Fairies™ as a user.

If a Voucher Holder requires assistance from us in relation to a lost Voucher, it is his or her responsibility to obtain and provide us with all required verification details. Failure to do so will mean no replacement Voucher code will be issued.

We will replace any valid, unexpired Voucher that is faulty or unable to be redeemed.  Any replacement Voucher will have the same value and expiry date as the Voucher’s current amount.  If you have a faulty Voucher, please contact us during Sydney business hours. You must have available the original email address or mobile number receipt and Voucher reference number. We may request other verification and security checks in our absolute discretion before a replacement Voucher is issued.

Voucher Holders have the responsibility to safeguard their unique voucher code from unauthorised access.  Bill Fairies™ accepts no responsibility for any unauthorised use of any unauthorised Payment Directions submitted through the website.

Voucher Holders should immediately contact us if they have lost their unredeemed Voucher code, or if they suspect that a third party may have unauthorised access to Voucher.

  1. A Voucher purchased and the amount redeemable from the Voucher will be valid for 36 months from the date of purchase.  The Voucher will not be redeemable or any Vouchers from which the Voucher was redeemed will be removed from the Voucher Holders account balance on the expiration of 36 months after the date of purchase of the Voucher.

For example, in relation to a Voucher that is redeemed 6 months after the date of purchase, those Vouchers must be used to pay one or more a Bills within 30 months after the redemption otherwise they will be deleted from the Voucher Holder’s account balance.
