Terms and conditions

  1. Your authorised stored payment method details will be securely stored by AGL and may be used by AGL in accordance with the AGL Stored Payment Method Terms and Conditions (available at agl.com.au/spmterms) and the AGL Direct Debit Arrangement Terms and Conditions (available at agl.com.au/ddterms).
  2. Where you have one AGL account number for your gas and electricity accounts, your stored payment method is available and able to be used by AGL where you request or authorise AGL to arrange for the payment of an amount due on that account.
  3. This service is not available for use in making payments from some passbook savings accounts.
  4. If your stored payment method 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 AGL’s published Fees and Charges (agl.com.au/help/rates-contracts/fees-charges), will apply to payments made using a credit card or debit card as your stored payment method.
  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 requesting your payment authorisation. If you respond with a pay instruction, this will be taken by AGL to be authorisation by you for the payment of the amount due. Unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms and Conditions, no payment will be obtained by AGL under your stored payment method without your SMS authorisation.
  8. If you receive more than one SMS from AGL requesting your payment authorisation within the last three business days, we will seek your confirmation on applying your payment authorisation to each pending SMS request. If you respond with a payment confirmation, this will be taken by AGL to be authorisation by you for each pending SMS request.

  10. Where your payment obligations fall on a non-business day your authorised payment using your stored payment method will usually be processed on the next business day. Payments requested or authorised after 6.00pm AEST on a business day may require an extra business day to be processed. If you are uncertain as to when a debit will be processed by your financial institution or any other payment service provider, you may contact them directly.
  11. If sufficient funds are not available in your stored payment method account at the time of our processing your authorised payment, a dishonour fee may be charged by both your financial institution or any other payment service provider, and by AGL, to cover reasonable administrative and processing costs. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient funds available in your stored payment method account by the due date for the payment of any amount for which you authorise payment to AGL.
  12. If you request AGL to process a payment after the invoice or instalment due date, AGL may not process that payment request. If your payment request is not processed for any reason, you will be notified by AGL and you will be required to pay the outstanding invoice or instalment amount through another payment method available to you and accepted by AGL.
  13. If you change your stored payment method, or your stored payment method details after the batch processing time on the day your authorised payment will be processed, your stored payment method, or your stored payment method details held by AGL (at the time that AGL initiated the processing of your payment) will be used to seek to make the payment and not your changed stored payment method or stored payment method details you have provided.

    1. in accordance with the AGL Stored Payment Methods Terms and Conditions;
