The Vision Australia Debit Service Agreement outlines the commitment Vision Australia has to you in relation to the Direct Debit Request (DDR) or credit card arrangements made between Vision Australia (#056145) and yourself.

It sets out your rights, our commitment to you and your responsibilities to us, together with where you should go for assistance.

Initial terms of the arrangement

In terms of the DDR or credit card arrangements made between us and agreed by yourself, we undertake to periodically debit your nominated card or account for the agreed regular amount.

Drawing arrangements

Drawings under this arrangement will occur on or around the 15th or 28th of the month on the scheduled day selected.

  • If any drawing is due on a non-business day, it will be debited from your account on or around the next business day following the scheduled drawing date.
  • If your drawing is returned or dishonoured by your financial institution, we will endeavour to contact you to inform you.
  • We may attempt to redraw dishonoured donations at various times after the initial drawing date.
  • We will give you at least 14 days’ notice in writing when changes to the initial terms of the arrangement are made. This notice will state any changes to the initial terms.
  • If you wish to discuss any changes to the initial terms, please contact our Donor Care Team on 1800 422 077.
