Zip FAQs

What is Zip?

Zip is a payment method that allows you to buy things today and pay for them over time, interest free. Zip Pay can be used for Teacher Superstore orders that total $80 to $1000.

Who can use Zip?

To use Zip you need to:

  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • Be 18 years of age or over
  • Have an Australian debit card
  • Have a good credit history
  • Have a valid email address and phone number
  • Have a valid Facebook, PayPal or LinkedIn account in your name.

What are the costs for using Zip?

  • Interest Free Period: Always
  • Establishment Fee: $0
  • Minimum Repayments: $40/month
  • Monthly Fee: $6 - waived if you have no balance (more info)
  • Late Fee: $5 (may apply – see details)

Zip Pay works like an account. You get one account for all of your purchases, with only one repayment schedule to manage.

When you open your account, Zip will set up a monthly payment of $40 (or less if you owe under this amount). This will come from your debit card on the last day of each month and keep going until your purchases are paid off.

  • Your first payment won’t be due until the end of next month.
  • For all purchases, you make during a month you receive a statement with your closing balance on the 1st day of the following month.
  • You have until the end of the month to pay off your balance for the account to remain fee free.

Here’s an example : If you make your first purchase on the 1st of March for $39, you will receive a statement on the 1st of April with the closing balance of $39 (unless you made more purchases in March) which you need to pay off until the 30th of April in order to not have to pay the account fee of $6.

If you'd prefer to take extra time to pay off your balance, it's no problem - you'll just need to pay the monthly minimum of $40, and a $6 account fee will be added to your balance for the following month.

For example: If you make two purchases in February, you'll receive a statement on March 1st showing how much you owe for these two purchases. You'll then have until March 31st to pay this amount without being charged the $6 account fee. Any purchases you make during March will appear on the April statement and are therefore due by end of April.

How do I pay for my order?

Payments are taken automatically via direct debit - you don't need to manually transfer money unless you would like to pay down your balance faster, and it doesn't replace your scheduled payment run. You can set up your repayments to fall monthly, fortnightly or weekly at whatever amount suits (provided this is greater than the monthly minimum of $40). If you decide not to set up an individual schedule, Zip will take repayments automatically at the end of the next month.

You can also make additional payments whenever you like via card or BPay.

Please note, the payment schedule is between you and Zip.
