By providing your payment method details to us (AGL) you accept and understand that these terms and conditions (Terms and Conditions) apply to your requested and authorised payment arrangement (SMS Pay arrangement) and you authorise your financial institution or any other payment service provider and AGL (User ID’s 348045, 348041, 373578, 23237282, 23237324 and 23426448) to arrange for funds to be debited from your relevant account in payment of amounts you owe to AGL from time to time (unless and until you cancel your SMS Pay arrangement). AGL is authorised to use your SMS Pay Arrangement in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

You should contact your financial institution or any other payment service provider if you are uncertain about providing your payment authority to us.

  3. This service is not available for use in making payments from some passbook savings accounts.
  4. If your SMS Pay arrangement relies on a credit card or debit card account, it can only be a Visa or MasterCard credit card or debit card (as applicable), and you authorise AGL to request payment from your nominated card account, using your current card and any replacement or substitute of that card from time to time. If your credit card or debit card has reached its expiry date, you should still provide AGL with your new details at least three business days prior to the next payment due date.
  5. A payment processing fee as provided for in Fees and Charges (agl.com.au/help/rates-contracts/fees-charges) may apply to payments made using a credit card or debit card.
  6. Bank transaction fees and Government taxes may apply.
  7. AGL will send you an SMS at least one business day before your bill or instalment due date, which if you respond to with the instruction “Pay”, will be taken to be authorisation by you of the payment of your bill or instalment (as is relevant in the circumstances). AGL will debit your nominated payment method to the value of the amount indicated in the SMS. No payment will be processed without your authorisation.

  11. If sufficient funds are not available in your nominated payment method account at the time of processing a payment, a dishonour fee may be charged by both your financial institution or any other payment service provider, and AGL to cover reasonable administrative and processing costs. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient funds available in your payment account by the due date for the payment of any bill payable to AGL.
  12. If your authorisation for processing a payment is provided after the bill or instalment due date, AGL may not process that payment request.

  14. You may remove any payment methods stored by AGL at any time in accordance with the AGL Stored Payment Method terms and conditions (available at agl.com.au/spmterms).
