Vodafone Direct Debit Request Service Agreement
This is your Direct Debit Request Service Agreement (Agreement) with TPG Telecom Limited (ABN 76 096 304 620). This Agreement sets out your obligations in undertaking a direct debit or automatic recharge arrangement with us, and forms part of the terms and conditions of your direct debit request.
1.1 By written, verbal or online request you have authorised us (Vodafone ID 119218 and 304962) to arrange for funds to be debited from your account.
1.2 For postpaid plans, we will only arrange for funds to be debited from your account after we have notified the amount payable by you to us and when it is due, and where the due date falls on a non - business day we will draw the amount on the next business day. For prepaid plans where you have opted to recharge automatically, we’ll notify you by SMS 3 days before your plan expires and again on the day of expiry, and we will draw the same amount as your previous recharge on the day it is due whether or not it is a business day.
1.3 We will continue to rely on your authority to directly debit the amount of each bill or recharge from your nominated account until you advise us of any changes to the arrangements. We reserve the right to cancel the direct debit request or automatic recharge arrangement if one or more drawings are returned unpaid by your financial institution and to arrange with you an alternate payment method.
1.4 If our customer is a company utilising a corporate account, you warrant and represent that you are an authorised representative of that company and may enter into this direct debit request or automatic recharge arrangement on behalf of that company.
2.1 We may change or vary any details of this Agreement or a direct debit request or automatic recharge arrangement at any time if such changes or variations do not have a detrimental impact on you.
2.2 We will provide you with at least fourteen days’ notice for any changes which may have a detrimental impact on you.

For prepaid services, you may cancel your automatic recharge arrangements by logging into MyVodafone and opting out at any time. If your direct debit arrangement is through your bank account, you may also contact your financial institution well in advance of your payment due date if you wish to stop a direct debit payment.
2.4 If you cancel your direct debit request through your financial institution or payment provider without notifying us or providing us with an alternative means of payment, additional charges may apply. Refer to Part C of Section 3 of Vodafone's Standard Form of Agreement available at vodafone.com.au for further details of these charges.
