The General Fees specified, except for the Foreign Currency Settlement Fee, are applicable to the acceptance of Cards and Local Payment Methods. All fees set out in this schedule are GST inclusive, unless otherwise indicated.

Defined terms in this Fee Schedule have the meaning given to them in Airwallex’s Online Payment Terms, which can be found here: https://www.airwallex.com/au/terms.

† These fees exclude any additional fees or charges imposed by a Network. Such fees and charges will be passed onto you by Airwallex.

‡ The Foreign Currency Settlement Fee is not applicable to Transactions made by Local Payment Methods. The Foreign Currency Settlement Fee and the FX Conversion Fee are separate fees. Depending on the specific foreign currencies involved in a Transaction, only one of these would be charged at once.

ª A Refund or Chargeback of a Transaction that was subject to the FX Conversion Fee will also be subject to the FX Conversion Fee in relation to the conversion of the relevant currency for the Refund or Chargeback (as applicable).

Some of these fees may appear as one combined fee on your invoice. For example, an International Card transaction may appear as one fee that combines the Payment Method Fee and Foreign Currency Settlement Fee in the same line item. If you have any questions about the fees on your invoice, please contact us and we can help clarify any questions.
