Direct debit not working ?

I got an email saying my latest internet bill is overdue, despite having direct debit enabled. I double checked in My Account, and all my direct debit details are there. I ended up paying this bill manually, but why wouldn't direct debit be working? (There was enough money in the account so it's not that) I don't want to have to worry about this every month...

Re: Direct debit not working ?

Hi there,

Did you only recently set up Direct Debit? If you had set it up after the most recent bill had been issued, it would have had to been paid manually as you have since done.
If previous bills have been paid with Direct Debit and then this one mysteriously didn't that is odd, let us know if it happens again next month.

Had a direct debit in place, then changed my plan to a bundle, and the account to my Westpac cheque account. The amount was $60 and was to become $75 per month. No we have a payment problem. This was done by a store

Re: Direct debit not working ?

My bank account details are in place, and I was expecting to pay $75 per month. Nothing has been taken so something is wrong elsewhere. I have been down this path with you guys before. You incurred penalties unfairly  when the problem is yours not mine and it looks like this has happened yet again! Why is there an amount of $105 showing for one month when the full amount quoted was $75? If you cannot answer these queries then refer my problem to someone who can sort it 

Thankyou

We're sorry you're having issues with your billing, @kelshaw. This is definitely not the experience we want our customers to be having.

From there, we can verify your account and investigate further.

Re: Direct debit not working ?

Tried all the suggested options without any results so I will be going to a store where I can speak to a human being and hopefully get a good result. If not I’ll have to go elsewhere
