Useless

published

Useless, owed money to them from my vet bills, couldn’t contact them, received no information on how to pay debt, so they send the debt collectors, poor service, made no attempt to contact me about the matter

Abhorrent fees

published

Disgusting company $15 late fees if you miss your direct debit. I changed my payment date frequency yet the still processed the money on the original date and charged me a late fee for convenience. Eye gauging at it finest.

Debit Success needs to be shut down.

published

Debit Success is hands down the worst financial management a company can use. They lock your account to make sure you get charged a late fee. Debit Success needs to be shut down permanently.

Run by Crooks, how is this legal!?

published

Never use these guys, will charge you even after you've cancelled any membership from them and try to chase you for it. These guys stung me for theme park services that I couldn't use due to covid anymore and even after cancelling they chase me for money. They are crooks.

Report your complaints to Department of Fair Trading and/or ACCC.

The combination of Gym memberships and Direct payment organisations is questionable at best. Debitsuccess take this to the next level and I believe that it is time to make both parties accountable. Don't rely on either of them for empathy or understanding, they're out to get your money.
Stand up and make your voice heard. Report these undesirable entities to the authorities.

Scam company will illegally charge you fees!

published

I had a contract with worlds gym in Townsville who use debit success to manage their membership fees. They were dishonest and unprofessional. They made debits on the incorrect dates after me being on the phone with them only days before hand and then try to charge reversal fees when the debit was unsuccessful. After enquiring why they made the debit on the incorrect date they promised to refund the amount of the reversal fee the following week. They did not honor their promise to provide the refund and then attempted to charge me $200 to cancel my contract. My girlfriend and I have both had to make a complaint to afca about debit success. I can't stress this enough do not do business with debit success.

Rude! the worth customer service.

published

Based on the good payment history of 14 years, they did't want to waive $10 as one off. My regular fortnightly payment didn't go through based on the family circumstances, I called immediately to provide new card details and was advised that $10 will be charged regardless.

Terrible business practice

published

I changed my card linked to direct debit and forgot to update to my the card details with Debit Success. They charge a fee on the account and then send me an email with the amount I'm due. I make the monthly payment for service on the day i received the email. I call them up and the person on the other end said, sorry can't refund you for the fee we already paid. My question paid who and why? There was nothing done! I paid the gym not them. Upon enquiry they first said it was the gym but i know the gym manager told me they don't charge any fees, then they said it's your bank and i also know it's not the bank, then they said it's MasterCard or Visa.

"insufficient funds" when I have sufficient funds

published

I was charged multiple overdue fees for "insufficient funds" but plenty of other services (Spotify, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc.) or monthly bills (power, insurance, etc.) were able to go through no issues at all. I cancelled my gym membership after being unable to get my money back from them and they charged me an overdue fee for my final payment... I will be actively avoiding ever paying anything with their service. If you can avoid, please do and save yourself the trouble. If you are a business please do not use them as a payment provider. If I could give 0 stars I would.

Typical scamster

published

As I have funds available in my account to pay my gym fee. The debit sucess never deducted any money and drop a message with an additional 10 dollar payment. When I asked them the reason stating the funds were available and why I still have to pay additional amount, they blame your bank. When I immediately confirmed with my bank, everything looks clear and concluded that the debit sucess was just a scam operating company. How is this company still operating ?

I have something from this being taken out of my account and I have no idea why I never asked for it to be taken out and I would like it to be cancelled. I'm confused as to why it's been done. Thanks. Mel

It looks like you may have subscribed to a business whether gym or educational one that takes money out of your account periodically. See if you can call them. But it is very hard to get through to them.

Mel, I would report your C/C as lost then a new card will be issued and then next time they try to deduct it it won't work.
Have you ever been a member of a any gym & it took 20mins to get through to them and I advised them i that my membership had expired in April 2019 conversation with D/S
D/S "that is the min date"
me "I didn't sign up for eternity, but 1 year only"
D/S "your contract states min 1 year"
me "that's illogical and not legal in Australia, contracts have end dates and not open ended & I'm not paying for the next 20years"
D/S "Well your debit will continue to mount up unless the gym advises us"

I spoke finally got through to the gym and emailed D/S and cancelled everything as they had on file were I contacted them in Feb 2020 to cancel the membership.

Hi,

Why does debit success ask for my netbanking client number and password when attempting to pay online by direct debit? If I disclosed this information I would e violating the terms and conditions of my netbanking account with my bank.

There is a reddit that talks about this - https://www.reddit.com/r/australia/comments/c9bnb8/zap_fitness_payment_gateway_asking_for_netbak/

Thanks!

that is very very concerning that they want your net banking password, they essentially want to access your bank account to pay themselves?

Someone other than debit success please reply!
Has anyone gone through the accc or financial ombudsman to sort this company out? I am at my wits end with paying extra money every week. It is disgraceful how this business works but I just want to find a way out of it. Ever since signing up for my gym they have been nothing but trouble. I still use my gym and cannot afford to pay the fee for breaking the contract. I have also heard from countless people of them transferring their gym membership only to have debt collectors come back months later saying they owe $800+ to this company. I am sure they aren't attempting to take money out of my account resulting in a fee. I just want to know what my options are to avoid this fraudulent and pathetic excuse for a company.
