Credit card details
- Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
Transfer the money electronically into Education Services Australia's bank account.
Australian schools may send a school cheque made payable to Education Services Australia Ltd.
New Zealand and international schools need to obtain a bank draft in Australian dollars from the school's local bank.
As SCIS subscriptions are for a calendar year a note on the invoice states "If payment in Australian dollars is not received by 31 December access will be disabled".
There is a grace period at the beginning of the year when you will have access to SCIS until 13 February. If your payment has not been received by 13 February you will not be able to access SCIS. As soon as payments are received they are processed promptly to minimise time without access.
Schools will be invoiced for any shortfall in payments.
All bank fees are the responsibility of the customer.
