Financial Info

We strive to make dental treatment affordable for the families of Swansea. Our payment options offer convenient choices for our patients to cover their treatment costs.

 

ZipMoney and ZipPay

Pay Later With No Deposit and No Interest

Here at Swansea Family Dental understand that finances can be challenging when it comes to dental treatment, so that’s why we have introduced ZipMoney and ZipPay as a payment option. ZipMoney and ZipPay is a safe, simple and convenient payment option, allowing you to pay for your dental treatment later in flexible weekly, fortnightly or monthly installments.

How does ZipMoney and ZipPay work?

There is no need to apply for the finance prior to your visit. Just simply select ZipMoney or ZipPay at reception after your dental consultation or treatment and fill out the required information. It only takes a few minutes and (subject to approval) once you have created your account, you never have to apply again and can continue to use it as much as you like.

ZipMoney and ZiPay pays immediately on your behalf, meaning your order will be processed straight away. Pay off your balance over time in flexible installments that suit your lifestyle.

Are there any fees and charges payable?

Each month you can choose to pay off your balance in full or make a partial payment that suits your budget. If the balance is paid by the due date no fees will be occurred.

If you’d like more time to pay, a monthly service fee will be added to the month you have an outstanding balance. There is also a minimum repayment of $40/month.

Am I eligible for this?

Most people are. However, there are a few requirements. You must be 18 years or older and an Australian resident, employed in some capacity and earn more than $300 per week to be eligible to apply.

How does the interest free work?

Interest free finance is available through ZipMoney.

* 6 months interest free on payments under $2,000. Minimum spend $500. No deposit required.
* 12 months interest free on payments over $2,000. No deposit required.

Please note, the contract is between you and ZipMoney Payments Pty Limited (ABN 58 164 440 993, Australian Credit Licence Number 441878). ZipMoney Terms & Conditions apply and are available on application.
