GlowPay Direct Account Terms and Conditions
Last updated: 7 December 2023
GlowPay Direct Account Terms and Conditions
Glow Payments Pty Ltd (ACN 666 911 084) (GlowPay Direct) provides an interest free repayment plan for your well-being through our website and mobile application (Platform). Subject to our approval, you can make a Finance Request to use your Available Credit to obtain an Advance to spread the cost of your well-being related purchases of approved Goods and Services. You then repay us over time, under a GlowPay Direct Payment Plan made under these Terms that sets out the amount and date of each repayment due under the Payment Plan. As you repay us the money owed to us for a purchase under a Payment Plan, you increase the amount of your Available Credit for making future Finance Requests.
Your GlowPay Direct Repayment Contract is comprised of these Terms and Conditions and the Payment Plan for each accepted Finance Request. Each purchase you make using your Available Credit will be documented within the Payment Schedule of the applicable Payment Plan. If you have questions, please contact us using the details at the bottom of these Terms.
IMPORTANT: Due to the low cost and customer obligation associated with this product, is it not subject to standard consumer credit protection under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009. You will usually have protection under other consumer laws relating to our interaction with you and our funding of your Payment Plans.
Our complete terms and conditions are contained below, but some important points for you to know before you become a customer are set out below:
Unless your GlowPay Direct Account is terminated in accordance with these Terms, your GlowPay Direct Account will roll over on an ongoing basis.
Our liability under these Terms is limited to 12 months of Subscription Fees, and we will not be liable for Consequential Loss, any loss that is a result of a Third Party Service, or any loss or corruption of data.
Nothing in these terms limits your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.

The advance will be paid to you into your Nominated Account detailed in the Payment Schedule for that Payment Plan. A copy of the Payment Plan will be provided to you.

Whenever we make a payment to you into your Nominated Account under a Payment Plan, we will debit the amount of that advance to your GlowPay Direct Account.
4.4 We may refuse to let you use your GlowPay Direct Account, or your Available Credit, to obtain an advance under your Repayment Contract where:
a) we have not received all of the information or documents we require about you;
b) the making of the advance would result in you exceeding the Credit Limit;

5. Making Payments
5.1 You must make all repayments described in an accepted Payment Plan we issue to you. Each payment must be made to us at the time stated or provided for in the Payment Schedule of the relevant accepted Payment Plan.
5.2 You must provide us with a valid PayTo Agreement or valid Direct Debit Request (DDR) or an acceptable recurring payment authority. At all times during the term of this Repayment Contract, you must ensure that we hold a valid PayTo Agreement or DDR or recurring payment authority that authorises us to collect or recover from your Nominated Account all amounts that are due to us from you from time to time under your Repayment Contract.
5.3 If your Nominated Account changes, you must provide us with:
a) a new and valid PayTo Agreement for your new Nominated Account; or
b) a new and valid DDR for your new Nominated Account applicable to your new DDR; or
c) a new recurring payment authority applicable to the approved card that is linked to the new Nominated Account.
d) If your applicable Payment Card, account number or card number changes, you must provide us with a new and valid recurring payment authority where we do not hold a valid PayTo Agreement or DDR from you.
5.4 We may debit your Nominated Account or applicable payment card, from time to time, with all amounts that become due and payable to us under your Repayment Contract.
5.5 All payments made to us, or received by us, in respect of outstanding principal, fees, or charges will be applied by us in reduction of your outstanding liabilities to us.
5.6 You must pay us in Australian currency, in Australia, and make payments in a form acceptable to us. We will give you credit for any payment you make from and including the day we receive the payment or cleared payment (whichever is the later). Each payment that you make to us that is not made under a PayTo Agreement or a DDR or a recurring payment authority, must be accompanied by details of your Account and the Payment Plan in respect of which the payment is made.
5.7 We may choose to allow a late payment of an amount that is due to us. A waiver by us in respect of the time for making a particular payment does not affect our rights under this Repayment Contract to receive the payment or your obligations to make payment of any other amount on time.
5.8 In the event of unforeseen circumstances that affect your ability to make repayments, you may be eligible for assistance under our Hardship Policy available on our website www.glowpay.co/financial-assistance or provided by upon request.
5.9 Where you have repayments due under more than one Payment Plan, and where you have provided a different PayTo Agreement, or DDR or recurring payment authority to meet your obligations under one or more different Payment Plans, we may request payment under any of these PayTo Agreements, DDRs and recurring payment authorities for any amount due and payable to us where:
a) you are in Default under this Repayment Contract, including with regard to the payment of an amount that is due and payable to us; and
b) we have made two or more requests for payment using one of your payment authorities and those attempts have failed and we have not been able to contact you to arrange an alternative payment method.
In such circumstances, you also authorise us to combine one or more Payment Plans and deduct all repayments owing under the combined Payment Plans from the one Nominated Account or payment card.
6. Using or Increasing Your Credit Limit
6.1 Your Repayment Contract operates with a Credit Limit. If you are approved to borrow up to an approved Credit Limit, you may request to drawdown your Available Credit from time to time by making a Finance Request. Each approved Advance by us to you will result in a separate Payment Plan.
6.2 You are required to make scheduled repayments with respect to each Payment Plan. As you reduce the outstanding balance that you owe us under a Payment Plan, the amount of your Available Credit increases.
6.3 We retain full discretion in deciding whether to accept your request for us to Advance funds against your Available Credit in respect of a proposed Finance Request and Payment Plan.
6.4 Despite sub-clause 6.3, we will seek to approve most reasonable requests for an Advance, for example, when your repayment history is good, all supporting documents are supplied, it is for an Acceptable Purpose and our lending and risk criteria are satisfied.
6.5 If we approve an Advance for a new Finance Request, we will issue a new Payment Schedule to you to document the new Payment Plan. The new Payment Plan will run concurrently with any other active Payment Plan.
7. Third-Party Payment Provider
7.1 We may make payment to you for an Advance or seek payment from you from your Nominated Account through our third-party provider Zai Australia Pty Ltd. You acknowledge and agree that we have no control over the actions of the third-party provider, and your use of the third-party payment method may be subject to additional terms and conditions.
8. Your Warranties
8.1 You warrant to us that:
a) you are 18 years or over and a resident of Australia;
b) you are not an undischarged bankrupt and you have no reason to believe you may become Insolvent at the time of executing each Finance Request under a Payment Plan;

d) you have conducted your own due diligence on the Goods or Services and the suitability of the Goods or Services for your purpose;
e) you will not use the Goods or Services in connection with any illegal activity;
f) you will make all payments due and payable under a Payment Plan even if you do not have control or possession of the Goods, or if the Goods are not installed or operational, or if the Good or Services were not supplied or are subject to dispute with the Vendor, or if a refund or partial refund for the Goods or Services has been requested or obtained;
g) you will inform us promptly if your contact details or Nominated Account details change;
h) you will regularly check your communication methods for correspondence from us; and
i) you will notify us immediately if you become unable to meet your payment obligations under your Repayment Contract.
