Just got this from EBP:
"Due to the increased fees related to supporting top-ups from credit/debit cards, the surcharge for using credit/debit cards will increase from 0.8% to 1.3% of the transaction amount. This surcharge will apply to all top-up transactions made from credit/debit cards....effective 11pm 12th October"

Not surprised, probably all the premium cards pushing their merchant rates up...

If using dragon that means you're paying 1.5cpp on EBP (post deval)

With BCB if you have Amex Charge its 1.7cpp, if you can claim GST then BCB comes down to 1.58cpp - Amex of course has more transfer partners ...

hi guys- sorry disclaimer, new here and I can't seem to be able to PM?!? (restricted?)


Specifically for ATO payments > I'm looking at options after coming off AMEX Explorer/PE combo with Ascent and using RewardPay previously,

Wanted to understand the best current option - get the EBP bit (thank you!)

Is it the same as the Amex/RP setup, in that I use EBP / Dragon combo?

can someone please guide me to which dragon? also does it work with Amex too (still not cancelled)

if any of you kind folks could PM me pls?

thanks
J!

No more free threshold after 12/10/2019. You will have to pay 1.3% on every single cent that load from debit/credit card.

Did you get an email or a confirmation from them about this, that the 1000$ free threshold is finished ?
Thanks.
