2. The Program has a referral scheme. Existing GoCardless account holders can refer new customers to GoCardless by inviting them to create a GoCardless account via the unique referral link provided upon completion of the Program’s training webinar and certification test. Referrers must be over 18 years old and the business associated with the existing account must be carrying on business in Australia.
3. A referral will be a “Successful Referral” where a new customer clicks on the unique referral link and creates a GoCardless account via that link.

A new customer is a customer that: (i) is not currently a customer of GoCardless, (ii) is not in the same group of companies as an existing customer of GoCardless (iii) is not a previous customer of GoCardless or (v) has not been in discussions or negotiations with GoCardless regarding the receipt of our services.
5. In exchange for a Successful Referral, we will set the transaction fees the referred new customer’s account to zero for a period of 3 months (commencing on the first Friday after the Successful Referral is made), with the effect that there will be no fee charged on payments processed in relation the relevant account during that 3 month period (the “Reward”).
6. Any other fees (such as monthly fees) applicable to the account will continue to be due and payable to us. At the end of the 3 month period, we will reset the transaction fees to the standard rates as they appear on our website.
7. The Reward can be redeemed only once per account.
8. For referrers, we will provide reporting on the number of Successful Referrals made.
9. GoCardless will determine at its sole discretion and has final say as to whether a Successful Referral has been made.

We reserve the right to substitute another voucher or item in place of the Reward.
10. We are not responsible for any delay, mistake or error arising out of or in connection with the Reward. To the fullest extent permissible by law, we will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever which is suffered or sustained as a result of participation in the Program or use or non-use of the Reward.
