I paid medibank through AP Post Billpay page - got 1 point per dollar Plat Edge card. I did a small amount payment which registered as 1ppd, then I did the larger balance payment a few days later also got 1ppd

Has anyone tried paying for an Australian Visa lately using Paypal (+/- Postbillpay)?
I have a $19K payment to make next week.
I was hoping to give my Business Accelerator a last hurrah but don't want to end up with 0.5/$ as opposed to 2

Can you do a small payment first to test and then the rest once you see the PPD you receive

Thanks mate. I was looking through my statement from last year and i seem to have only gotten 0.5 points for my medibank premium payments. But I didn’t really have a breakdown of it. So could have been 0.5 points elsewhere. Will give it another crack.
As a follow up from this, I did indeed get 2 ppd for paying my medibank premiums via postbpay. Good times all round, while it lasted at least.

My payment to Immi using Business Accelerator via Postbillpay with PayPal did only earn 0.5 MR/$ :(. Appeared on statement as PayPal AP. At least there was no surcharge with Postbillpay.
