Terms of Service - Australia
LAST UPDATE: 6 February 2021
Traderate allows you to pay for your purchase over a two-month period, weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
You must be over 18 years old and be the authorised holder of an eligible debit/credit card to apply
(see clause 2.4 for eligibility criteria).
All orders are subject to Traderate’s approval – for example, if you have any overdue payments,
Traderate will not be available to you. For more information on assessment and checks, see clause 6.2
As part of our approval process, we may conduct a pre-authorisation on your nominated card, up to an
amount of your first instalment - see clause 6.2(f)
You can make repayments to Traderate any time BEFORE the due date. Otherwise, Traderate will
automatically try process payments on the scheduled dates from your card.
If you won’t be able to pay us on time, please contact us as soon as possible by email at
The delivery/quality of goods and all refunds is the responsibility of the Merchant where you make the
Trade users will receive payment less service fee within 24 hours of the customer making their first
payment through the Traderate platform.
Important information regarding card pre-authorisations
As part of our approval process and our assessment as to whether or not you have the capability to
fulfil your obligation to make future payments to Traderate according to the Payment Schedule, we
reserve the right to conduct a pre-authorisation of your Nominated Payment Source. This may involve
placing funds in the account linked to your Nominated Payment Source on hold each time you make an
online purchase, obtain a barcode for an in-store purchase or add a new Card to your Traderate Account.
For online purchases, we immediately instruct your bank to void this pre-authorisation transaction. For
in-store, where a barcode is obtained but a purchase does not eventuate, we instruct the bank to void
the pre-authorisation if the barcode is cancelled or expires. No funds are received by Traderate during
this process. We cannot guarantee the time it takes for your bank to process this action by us and make
your funds available.
PLEASE NOTE: In most circumstances, relevant banks will void a pre-authorisation transaction within a
few hours of the pre-authorisation transaction being conducted by Traderate. However, in some observed
instances, banks have taken up to fourteen (14) days to finalise this process. Unfortunately, we do not
have any control or influence over the timing of your bank’s ability to finalise this process and
Traderate makes no representations on this subject matter.

Orders, payments and billing
Order Confirmation and Payment Schedule
All Orders which you place with Traderate are subject to approval by Traderate, in
our reasonable discretion. We may choose not to approve an Order or provide a
Product to you, or may cancel an approved Order before the goods or services are
delivered or supplied, if:
we reasonably consider this necessary in order to:
- protect the integrity of our systems or the Products;
- prevent fraud;
- limit the risk of money laundering or terrorism financing; or
otherwise protect us against legal, regulatory or non-payment risk;
you do not pass our verifications or checks, including those described in
we reasonably suspect, or are aware, that you have breached this Agreement
in a material respect (including by failing to make any payment due under
this Agreement on the payment due date);
an Order is made with a merchant in a different jurisdiction that is not
permitted by Traderate; or
- we otherwise reasonably consider the Order to be suspicious.
If we cancel an approved Order:
we will apply a full refund of any amounts you have paid to us to your
Nominated Payment Source or (if that is not possible) to any other Card that
you have provided us details of, and will cancel any future payments related
to that Order. In the event the approved Order is cancelled because a
chargeback has been incurred by Traderate in relation to a payment for the
approved Order, that payment will not be refunded by Traderate. Any return
of funds in that event will be as between you and your issuing bank. The
Merchant will not be obliged to deliver the goods (or provide the services)
the subject of the Order, unless required to do so by law;
you will have no obligation to make any further payments to us, or any other
ongoing relationship with us, with respect to that Order; and
if you wish to proceed with the purchase from the Merchant, the Merchant may
accept an alternative payment method in its discretion, or if required to do
so by law.
Once we approve your Order, you will receive an email from us with confirmation of
receipt of your Order and a Payment Schedule.
You agree to ensure that payment(s) are made in accordance with the Payment
Schedule. You may make early payments through your Traderate Account, otherwise
Traderate will automatically process payments in accordance with the due dates
stated on the Payment Schedule. You authorise Traderate to process such payments
using the Payment Method details provided by you. If an Automatic Payment fails on
any of the dates specified in your Payment Schedule, Traderate reserves the right to
re-attempt to process the payment at a later time or date.
Once the customer commences a pay by instalment arrangement with Traderate, we will
pay you the value of the invoice less service fee within hours.
An ‘Automatic Payment’ is a payment, through the Payment Method you have chosen,
that we will automatically charge directly to your nominated Card (‘Nominated
Payment Source’) on a one-time or regular basis in agreed upon amounts as outlined
in your Payment Schedule. You will have the option to select a preferred Payment
Method and Nominated Payment Source when your Traderate Account is being created.
You can update or change your preferred Nominated Payment Source or Payment Method
at any time via your Traderate Account.
Subject to the other terms of this Agreement, You hereby expressly consent to,
authorise and instruct Traderate to deduct Automatic Payment amounts from your
Nominated Payment Source for the amounts and on those scheduled dates set out in
your Payment Schedule. You acknowledge that you are giving us the ability to collect
or reverse variable payment amounts from or to your Nominated Payment Source, in
accordance with your Payment Schedule and the terms of this Agreement.
You are responsible for ensuring that you have sufficient funds in your Nominated
Payment Source available to make Automatic Payments on the dates specified in your
Payment Schedule. You are liable for any fees or charges imposed by your Nominated
Payment Source, except to the extent that such fees or charges arise as a result of
our error or system failure.
If an Automatic Payment fails (for example, if your Nominated Payment Source is a
credit or debit card which has expired), Late Fees may apply unless you otherwise
make the scheduled payment on or before the relevant due date. You authorise us to
satisfy any monetary liability you owe us by:
Please see clause 4.3 below for more information regarding Late Fees.
- Debiting your Nominated Payment Source at a later time or date;
- Debiting any other Card which you have provided details of;
- Offsetting the payment amount against any amounts we may owe to you; or
- Any other legal means.
If you fail to pay any amounts according to the Payment Schedule, Late Fees will
apply on each payment that is due but not received. For the avoidance of doubt, Late
Fees will not be applied until the day immediately following the day that the
payment is due.
We may, at our sole discretion, reasonably delay the application of, or waive wholly
or partly, any Late Fee.
In the event where your overdue account is referred to a collection agency and/or
law firm, you will be liable for all costs which would be incurred as if the debt is
collected in full, including commission on collection of the additional costs and
also including legal demand costs.
In the event of the Customer being in default of his obligation to pay and the
overdue account is then referred to a debt collection agency, and/or law firm for
collection the Customer shall be liable for the recovery costs incurred and if the
agency charges commission on a contingency basis the Customer shall be liable to pay
as a liquidated debt, the commission payable by the Supplier to the agency, fixed at
the rate charged by the agency from time to time as if the agency has achieved one
hundred per cent recovery.
Charges or Fees, if any, payable by you for the use of our Products or your
Traderate Account will be set out in Schedule 1 to this Agreement.
In the event the Customer defaults in payment of an invoice, the customer shall
indemnify the Contractor from any costs incurred by the Contractor in recovering the
outstanding amount, including but not limited to solicitors fees.
Cross Border Transactions
Where you use our Products to make a Cross Border Transaction, we will convert what the
Merchant charges for the goods into your local currency using a retail exchange rate
selected by Traderate at our discretion to determine the Original Order Value and the
amounts payable by you in accordance with your Payment Schedule. The exchange rate used
will change regularly to reflect the currency fluctuations in the foreign exchange
No set up fees or foreign exchange commission will be applied to the exchange rate
applied to perform the conversion.
- No interest charges are payable by you for the use of our service.
No set off
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, you must make all payments in
accordance with the Payment Schedule and pay all other amounts in full to us under this
Agreement without any set-off, withholding or reduction for any reason whatsoever,
including any existing or future act, omission or default by us.
If you decide to return goods to a Merchant, which have been purchased using our service,
and request a refund, or a return and refund are otherwise accepted by the Merchant or
permitted by law, you will directly arrange the return with the Merchant, ensuring that the
goods are returned according to the Merchant’s returns policy or other instructions or your
rights at law.
It is your responsibility to notify the Merchant if you intend to return any goods. The
return must be completed within the period specified and in the manner required by the
Merchant’s returns policy or as otherwise permitted by the Merchant.
Unless we are notified by a Merchant that a return and refund is in progress, we will
continue to process any Automatic Payments in accordance with the dates set out in your
Until such time that the Merchant has confirmed the return of the goods and has issued a
refund to us for those goods, you will remain liable to us for the full payment of the
goods, in accordance with your Payment Schedule.
Once the Merchant has issued a refund to us for the goods, we will issue a refund to your
Nominated Payment Source (or, if that is not possible, to any other Card that you have
provided details of) and/or adjust your Payment Schedule appropriately (including to reduce
or cancel any future payments, if necessary). Please note, in the event of partial refunds,
refund amounts are taken off the last payment/s first. If the refund is processed to your
expired or cancelled card, you will need to obtain the returned funds by contacting your
When a Merchant issues a refund for a Cross Border Transaction, Traderate will use the
original retail exchange rate (used at the time the order was placed) to determine the
refund amount to apply to your Nominated Payment Source for the relevant goods.
Where you wish to return a product 120 days or more after the purchase date, we will no
longer have any involvement in the product return process (i.e. the Merchant will provide
any agreed refund directly to you).
Assessment and checks
We reserve the right to assess, and determine whether to accept or cancel, each
Order in accordance with clause 4.1.
Repayment capability and identity checks
We reserve the right to verify your identity, including if required under the
Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act. Verifying your identity
does not mean we will approve your order (see clause 4.1(a) for other variables that
You agree to provide any information or documentation reasonably requested by
Traderate or a Merchant to verify your identity in connection with your Traderate
Account or Orders.
You authorise us to make, directly or through third parties, any enquiries we
consider necessary to verify your identity and assess your capability to make
payments according to the Payment Schedule in relation to all Traderate Orders. This
may include ordering a credit report, performing other repayment capability checks
and verifying information you provide against third party databases.
All information that Traderate collects about you, including information collected
in connection with the verification of your identity, will be collected, used and
You authorise Traderate (or any third parties providing services on behalf of
Traderate) to disclose to third parties, to the extent required by any applicable
laws or regulations, any information in relation to you or your Traderate Account.
In addition, you acknowledge that Traderate reserves the right to report any
negative activity on your Traderate Account (including late payments, missed
payments, defaults or chargebacks) to credit reporting agencies.
As part of our approval process and our assessment as to whether or not you have the
means to fulfil your obligation to make payments to Traderate according to the
Payment Schedule, we reserve the right to conduct a pre-authorisation of your
Nominated Payment Source. This may involve placing funds in the account linked to
your Nominated Payment Source on hold each time you make an online purchase, obtain
a barcode for an in-store purchase or add a new Card to your Traderate Account.
We cannot guarantee the time it takes for your bank to process both the
pre-authorisation transaction and our voiding of that transaction.
