Any payment you make to your account needs to first meet the minimum payment due, it is then allocated according to the payment allocation sequence (ref. Sec9 in T&C’s), unless directed.

Only payments in excess of the minimum amount can be allocated to a specific plan. To allocate these surplus funds to a specific plan you need to ensure the contract number of that plan is used as the reference number on your payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

Example:
Contract number: 87654321 (8 digits)
Reference number: 000087654321 (12 digits)

Full details of the payment allocation sequence can be found in section 9 of our Terms and Conditions.

If you are using your internet banking to pay, we recommend using the list of payees registered with your bank. Save us on your payee list to make future payments easier.

If you can’t find the registered payee, don’t worry – we have you covered:

Account name: Consumer Finance Limited

Make sure payments always get to your account by using the correct reference information.
Particulars: Surname & initials
Code: 6015
Reference: The last 12 digits of your Q Card number, found on the front of your card.

To direct a payment to a specific plan use the contract number of that plan as the reference number (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Our terms and conditions can be viewed here.

We have carefully reviewed all costs and losses that we have incurred as a result of customers not making the payment to us on due date. These are analysed separately according the age of the default.

By adopting this approach no customer is charged more than what it has cost us as a result of their failure to pay on due date at any given point in the collection cycle. The basis under which we set default fees is subject to regular internal and external review.

Absolutely not. The fee is charged to compensate us for the costs and losses we have incurred as a result of customers not making their payment on due date. We do not generate additional income from credit default fees.

Arrears fees are charged to partially recover costs to the business that are incurred when customers do not make repayments on time.

Q Card arrears fees are charged in four stages:

  • Stage 1: $15 charged at 10 days overdue.
  • Stage 2: $15 charged at 32 days overdue.
  • Stage 3: $15 charged at 45 days overdue.
  • Stage 4: $15 charged at 64 days overdue.

If the arrears are paid and the account is brought back up to date the arrears process ends and fees stop being charged.

Fees are correct as at the 5th March 2012.

Q Card is a revolving credit facility, and as such has funds available to be drawn at any time. Providing this facility incurs costs to the business which are partially covered by this fee.

Your credit limit is the maximum amount of credit available for you to use. Purchases over your credit limit will be declined automatically at the point of sale.

If this happens it is possible to pay a deposit for the amount of the purchase that is over your limit to allow the purchase to go through.

This can happen if interest, fees or other charges are made to your account while the balance is at the credit limit.

You will not be able to use your card to make purchases if your account has expired or been closed, if your payment is overdue or if your card has been cancelled.

An Establishment Fee of $55 is charged only once upon set up of a Q Card account on a fixed instalment or Flexi plan.

The $55 Establishment Fee covers:

  • Application Handling Costs
  • New Contract Processing
  • Credit Check
  • Stationery Costs

After Q Card establishment, all subsequent fixed and flexi plans attract an Advance Fee of $35 (with the exception of QEFTPOS which does not incur any repeat fees).

We have carefully reviewed all costs and losses that we have incurred as a result of customers not making the payment to us on due date. These are analysed separately according the age of the default.

By adopting this approach no customer is charged more than what it has cost us as a result of their failure to pay on due date at any given point in the collection cycle. The basis under which we set default fees is subject to regular internal and external review.

Absolutely not. The fee is charged to compensate us for the costs and losses we have incurred as a result of customers not making their payment on due date. We do not generate additional income from credit default fees.

Arrears fees are charged to partially recover costs to the business that are incurred when customers do not make repayments on time.

Q Card arrears fees are charged in four stages:

The Fees & Miscellaneous plan is the place on your Q Card account where fees are charged and small remaining balances are managed. This enables your purchase plans to contain only the balance relating to that purchase.

Customers may be charged fees such as establishment fees, arrears fees, card replacement fees, and variation fees to cover the operational cost of providing services. All credit fees are supported by detailed costing justifications.

The Fee applies to all active accounts regardless of balance. The Q Card PPSR Fee is a government enforced charge. Its purpose is to register FPFs security over the assets purchased using Q Card.

Fees form a part of the normal card balance and can be paid as a part of your normal repayments using any of the normal payment methods that you would use to pay your account.

You can download a copy of the Initial Disclosure Statement here.

Q Card is a revolving credit facility, and as such has funds available to be drawn at any time. Providing this facility incurs costs to the business which are partially covered by this fee.

A Variation Fee is charged when the repayment terms of your contracts are manually altered or “varied”. A Variation can be either a reduction in your payments or having your arrears adjusted. This is a part of the Collections process and can occur when you notify us of not being able to meet your payment obligations.

The PPSR Fee is $3.00. This is charged when the account is created and every five years thereafter.

A Payment Arrangement Fee of $16.50 is charged for all payment arrangements made on accounts which are in arrears.

A $25 Q Card Account Fee is charged every six months in advance on all Q Card accounts to cover the costs of administering a customer’s account over the terms of the credit contract.

Card Repayment Insurance premiums are charged as a percentage of your account balance.

Premiums are charged monthly on your statement date. If you do not have an account balance you will not be charged a premium for the month. If you do have a balance on your account the amount of your insurance repayment depends on whether there are plans in a payment holiday period.

It costs just 89 cents for each $100 of your closing balance each month where a payment is due. And only 63 cents for each $100 of your closing balance each month that is within a payment holiday period. So if you owe nothing, no premium is charged.

Futurecare insurance is available for Fixed Instalment and Flexi purchases and is taken out in store at the time of purchase.

Insurance policies are offered “as is” and can not be altered by the policy holder.

The cover and terms specified in your policy may be amended from time to time by Consumer Insurance Services Limited. We will communicate details of any changes to your insurance policy before they occur.

To sign up for Q Card Repayment Insurance please phone Consumer Insurance Services Limited on 0800 855 333.

There is a 30 day cancellation period where we can cancel the insurance without charge.

If you cancel your insurance after 30 days of it commencing a pro-rata refund of the insurance premium will occur. This applies from the date the notification to cancel is received.

Reference: The last 12 digits of your Q Card number, found on the front of your card.

To direct a payment to a specific plan use the contract number of that plan as the reference number (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

If you have used an incorrect reference number your payment will have been sent to our holding account. Please phone our Customer Service centre on 0800 11 7000 to enable us to apply your payment to your account.

Your monthly statement contains the Total Amount Due each month. This information can also be obtained by logging into your Web Self Service or by phoning our Customer Service centre on 0800 117 000.

Not at all. Q Card is designed so that you only need to make one payment each month for the Total Amount Due. This will be distributed across all purchases that require an amount to be paid.

Consumer Finance Limted does not accept payments by credit card.

We have a prudent approach to helping customers manage their finances. It is important to ensure that we are never putting our customers in a potential position of hardship. By continuing to allow payment on one form of debt (e.g. a Fixed Instalment account) with another form of debt (e.g. a credit card), we cannot in all good conscience say we are protecting our customers. No other credit cards encourage this option and the industry standard is not to accept one form of credit to pay another.

If payments are not received by the due date your account will become overdue. Your statement will be sent at the normal date and will contain a message reminding you to make your payment as soon as possible. Arrears fees may be charged and reduction of your credit limit may occur.

Once payment is received for the full overdue amount your account will be brought back up to date. Arrears fees charged during the overdue period will be payable on the following month. If your limit has been reduced you will need to consistently make payments on time in subsequent months for it to be reinstated.

Due dates are set up at the time the account is activated and cannot be altered.

If your limit has been reduced you will need to consistently make payments on time in subsequent months for it to be reinstated.

We recommend making payments before your due date to ensure they are received on time. Depending on the payment method it may take up to five business days for your payment to clear.

No penalties are charged for making payments before your due date.

Full details of the payment allocation sequence can be found in section 9 of our Terms and Conditions.

When making payments to your Q Card the system ensures that the minimum payment for each of your purchases is met. To achieve this your payment is split across all plans that require an amount to be paid for that month. Making all your payments to a single purchase could cause your other purchases to go into arrears. The payment allocation system prevents this by splitting the payment across all plans.

It also means you don’t have to worry about doing this yourself – you can cover everything with just one payment a month.

Full details of the payment allocation sequence can be found in section 9 of our Terms and Conditions.

Any payment you make to your account needs to first meet the minimum payment due, it is then allocated according to the payment allocation sequence (ref. Sec9 in T&C’s), unless directed.
Only payments in excess of the minimum amount can be allocated to a specific plan. To allocate these surplus funds to a specific plan you need to ensure the contract number of that plan is used as the reference number on your payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).
Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

Example:
Contract number: 87654321 (8 digits)
Reference number: 000087654321 (12 digits

To pay to a specific contract or purchase you must first ensure your minimum payment for all plans has been covered. Only amounts that exceed the monthly minimum due can be directed to a specific plan.

Example:
The minimum repayment is $100
Your payment is $120 ($100 of the payment will be split to meet the minimum due on all plans)
You can direct that extra $20 to whichever plan you like.

To allocate these surplus funds to a specific plan you need to ensure your minimum due has been received by us first, after which you can make a payment using your contract number of that plan as the reference number (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

Example:
Contract number: 87654321 (8 digits)
Reference number: 000087654321 (12 digits)

The most reliable way in this situation is for the third party to make payments directly to you for the purchase you have made on their behalf. This gives you control of the payments being made to your Q Card and avoids issues with those payments being allocated to your other purchases.

To ensure payments are made to the specified plan you must first ensure the minimum repayment to your card has been received. Payments made after this will then need to use the contract number of that purchase as the reference number on the payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

If you have made a payment since your most recent statement was issued your payment will be listed on next month’s statement.

Your total due is calculated in the following way:

  • Fixed Instalment Plans require the set monthly instalment amount as specified on the Fixed Instalment Contract.
  • Flexi Plans that have come out of the payment holiday period require 3% of the balance to be paid each monthQ EFTPOS plans that have come out of the payment holiday period require 3% of the balance to be paid each month.
  • The Fees & Misc plan requires 3% of the balance to be paid each month

We are able to provide a Pay Off Quote for an individual purchase plan, however this is not recommended.

This is because if the quoted amount were to be paid the payment would be allocated to your account in accordance with our Payment Allocation Sequence. This involves the payment being divided across all currently billing purchase plans in order to meet the minimum amount due for each.

If the payment is divided in this way the individual plan would not be settled in full.

Please phone our Customer Service centre on 0800 117 000

The closing balance on your statement or Web Self Service is the amount of the total amount owing on your account as at the time your statement was printed.

Similarly, Pay Off Quotes are what the amount of your total owing balance as at a specified date in the future. Any changes to your account made between your statement date and the Pay Off Quote expiry date will cause a difference in these amounts.

Payments, interest charges, fees and refunds all affect the amount of your balance. If any of these have been applied to your account since your last statement was issued the Pay Off Quote will differ from the balance.

Pay Off Quotes can be emailed or faxed to a third party recipient at your request. This is a free service.

A Pay Off Quote can be provided by our Customer Service centre on 0800 117 000. You will be asked to provide the expected date of payment and the method by which the payment will be made.
You will be advised of the exact Pay Off amount and the date to which the quote is valid.

Make sure payments always get to your account by using the correct reference information.
Particulars: Surname & initials
Code: 6015
Reference: The last 12 digits of your Q Card number, found on the front of your card.

To direct a payment to a specific plan use the contract number of that plan as the reference number (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

The Web Self Service is not able to display the amount of payments that have been split across multiple accounts.

Please phone our Customer Service centre on 0800 117 000 to obtain dates and amounts of payments that have been split allocated.

A Payment Arrangement Fee of $16.50 is charged for all payment arrangements made on accounts which are in arrears.

To discuss a payment arrangement please phone our Collections team on 0800 499 299, Monday-Friday 8.30am to 5.00pm.

A payment arrangement is an agreement between the financier and the customer regarding a payment amount and due date which replace that specified on your monthly statement. A payment arrangement may be considered if you are unable to meet your normal payment obligations.

To direct a payment to a specific plan use the contract number of that plan as the reference number (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Not at all. Q Card is designed so that you only need to make one payment each month for the Total Amount Due. This will be distributed across all purchases that require an amount to be paid.

The most reliable way in this situation is for the third party to make payments directly to you for the purchase you have made on their behalf. This gives you control of the payments being made to your Q Card and avoids issues with those payments being allocated to your other purchases.

To ensure payments are made to the specified plan you must first ensure the minimum repayment to your card has been received. Payments made after this will then need to use the contract number of that purchase as the reference number on the payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

Example:
Contract number: 87654321 (8 digits)
Reference number: 000087654321 (12 digits)

To pay to a specific contract or purchase you must first ensure your minimum payment for all plans has been covered. Only amounts that exceed the monthly minimum due can be directed to a specific plan.

Example:
The minimum repayment is $100
Your payment is $120 ($100 of the payment will be split to meet the minimum due on all plans)
You can direct that extra $20 to whichever plan you like.

To direct the surplus amount to a particular purchase simply use the contract number of that purchase as the reference number on your payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Payment reference numbers must be 12 digits long – enter as many zeros as you need to before the contract number to ensure the format is correct.

Example:
Contract number: 87654321 (8 digits)
Reference number: 000087654321 (12 digits)

Any payment you make to your account needs to first meet the minimum payment due, it is then allocated according to the payment allocation sequence (ref. Sec9 in T&C’s), unless directed.

Only payments in excess of the minimum amount can be allocated to a specific plan. To allocate these surplus funds to a specific plan you need to ensure the contract number of that plan is used as the reference number on your payment (this should replace the last 12 digits of your card number that you would usually use as a payment reference).

Consumer Finance Limited does not accept payments by credit card.

We have a prudent approach to helping customers manage their finances. It is important to ensure that we are never putting our customers in a potential position of hardship. By continuing to allow payment on one form of debt (e.g. a Fixed Instalment account) with another form of debt (e.g. a credit card), we cannot in all good conscience say we are protecting our customers. No other credit cards encourage this option and the industry standard is not to accept one form of credit to pay another.
