Low-balance alerts

We will send pre pay and credit accounts a low-balance alert. The alert will go to the billing contact's email address at the following stages:

  • 10% balance remaining
  • 0% balance remaining

Apply for credit

If you wish to apply for credit, you must complete and submit a credit application form to link your BRS account to a credit account.

A credit account means we will charge all your transactions to your account. We will bill you monthly and send invoices to the billing email address listed in your BRS account.

Make sure you read the terms and conditions (see below) before completing the credit application form.

Terms and conditions for credit accounts

Payment terms are net 30 days. Payment is due within 30 days from the date of invoice unless we agreed to other terms in writing.

You cannot exceed the credit limit approved by us.

We reserve the right to pursue collection of outstanding amounts. We may add related costs to the outstanding amount owed under the credit service. These include but are not limited to:

  • external collection agent fees
  • legal and court costs.

Please see the credit application form for full terms and conditions.

Minimum credit limit

Only apply for a credit account if you expect your monthly activity to exceed the minimum credit limit of $5000.

Insufficient funds

Credit accounts with not enough funds available for a particular transaction will go back to Pay As You Go (PAYG). You will receive email alerts when you have 30% and 10% of your credit remaining. You will need to clear your account or invoice payment to restore the credit account.

You should pay your invoice promptly to restore access to your credit. You have 30 days to pay your bill each month.

If you pay your account electronically with your credit card, we will instantly restore access to your BRS credit limit.

Other payment methods

You can use the BRS using the PAYG or Pre-Pay account facilities. However, PAYG is not available to B2G clients.
